Bangor's own Stephen King took the ALS ice bucket challenge, becoming the latest in a long line of celebrities to get cold and wet to raise awareness (and money) for the terrible disease.

The master of horror took the challenge in honor of his friend Rocky Wood, who suffers from ALS. Almost sounded like King was ready to release a certain expletive after getting doused, but held it together. Good job, Stephen! We know it was shocking!

King also called out a fellow writer to take the challenge. Hint: He's a lawyer.
