Geddy Lee and His Bobblehead Take Ice Bucket Challenge

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

If you’ve been sitting around wondering when the singer from your favorite Canadian power-rock trio going to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, wonder no more. Rush‘s Geddy Lee just took it.

And as you can see from the above video, like the Foo Fighters and a few artists before him, Lee, who was challenged by Les Claypool of Primus, found an inventive way to dump a bucket of ice-cold water on his head. The minute-long clip starts with a bobblehead of Lee, complete with double-neck bass, stating in an exaggerated high voice, “Hi, I’m Geddy Lee of Rush, and I accept Les Claypool’s ice bucket challenge.”

He then dumps a shotglass of water on little Geddy’s bobbling head. The camera then pulls away to reveal the real Lee asking, “We got it?” He’s hoping that this fulfills the challenge. It doesn’t, of course, and a bucket of water is promptly dumped on his head.

Lee in turn has challenged fellow Canadians Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies and actor Jay Baruchel, as well as retired baseball pitcher Randy Johnson.

To date, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has netted the ALS Association an astonishing $41.8 million, compared with $2.1 million over the same time period last year.
