This Week in GIFs: Grohl Hangs with Obama, Rockstars Pour Water on Their Heads
GIFs are back, kids. After a brief hiatus, it's time to head into the fall season with a fresh batch hot off the press. And what better way to usher in the cold weather than to watch a bunch of your favorite musicians dump ice cold water on themselves. In all seriousness, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has taken the internet by storm, raising upwards of $45 million for ALS research. To find out how you can donate, jump over to the ALS site and do the good deed.
Below, check out members of Arcade Fire, Umphrey's McGee and the stellar Foo Fighters Carrie spoof taking part in the challenge, among other goodies. Happy Friday.
Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry responded to Les Claypool's challenge, but not before a smooch from bandmate Will Butler
And then, bam
Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters won the whole damn thing, though, with this Carrie spoof
Pat and Nate play their parts so perfectly...
...that it brought tears to Grohl's eyes
That's gonna mess up your hair, Dave
Speaking of the Foos, their new series premieres on October 17 and this guy is in it too
I guess we'll have to tune in to find out what the hell Buddy Guy is talking about here
Back to the Ice Bucket Challenge, I challenged Umphrey's and they happily obliged. Apologies, Brendan.
Jake gets it too
Stoic, Mr. Stasik

Speaking of the Umphrey's, they will celebrate their 2000th show at Madison, WI's Orpheum Theatre. It's a love story, really, sort of...
