Video: Bo Pelini Chooses Faux Pelini For ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

The bizarre love affair between Nebraska's Bo Pelini and the man who runs his famous fake Twitter account

OK can think of no better way to make people aware of ALS than by dumping ice water on my head so I will figure out a way to do it

Saturday, after Cornhuskers practice, Pelini took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, just as many other coaches in the country have done. When it came time to nominate a few people to carry on the tradition, Pelini targeted Ndamukong Suh, all of the high school football coaches in Lincoln, and, of course, Faux Pelini.

The mystery man has accepted the challenge, but it'll be interesting to see how he gets it done. Faux Pelini has never revealed his true identity, so he won't simply be able to pour ice water on his head. He'll have to get creative.
