WATCH: Neil Patrick Harris takes the ALS ice bucket challenge
How I Met Your Mother and Hedwig star, Neil Patrick Harris has taken the ice bucket challenge and decided to make the dare a family affair.
Perched on a stoop outside his home, the Tony=award-winning star said he was challenged by cookie monster and Ben Affleck amongst others. As his twins Harper and Gideon watch, husband-to-be David Burtka dumps a bucket load of icy water on to Harris’s heads.
Whilst Harris is shocked by the freezing dousing, his kids seem to think the whole thing is hilarious.
Harris in turn has challenged Castle star Nathan Fillion, Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks and fledgling film star Dave Franco.
The ALS ice bucket challenge has raised nearly 22 million to date.
