Dolly Parton Accepts Kenny Rogers’ ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
As the world continues the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, country legend Dolly Parton gets in on the fun for a good cause — hair and all.
After being challenged — or perhaps dared — by Kenny Rogers, Parton enlists the help of her two nieces to douse her and raise money and awareness for Lou Gehrig’s disease.
“I’m here to meet the challenge of a lot of people for ALS,” she tells the camera. “This was not on my bucket list, pardon the expression. A lot of people challenged me. Kenny Rogers dared me. Kenny said you’ll never do it with your false hair, your false eyelashes, and your false nails. Kenny, you’d be surprised at what all I do with my falses for a good cause and a good laugh.”
As she takes off her earrings and her scarf, she’s asked if she wants to remove her shoes.
