New York, NY, United States (4E) – 53-year-old comedian, Kathy Griffin, took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge not in a bikini or sweatpants, but with nothing- only her red high heels. She takes the challenge completely naked as she called it “taking it up a notch”.
Griffin first showed the world her body in the album cover art of her new album entitled “Look at My Butt Crack”. Griffin was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live when Kimmel asked Griffin about the video. Griffin made it clear and defended herself why she did it naked.
Griffin was nominated by Suze Orman, Aubrey Plaza, Margaret Cho and AJ McLean, who told her to do the challenge on full commando.
The video started as Griffin swam in her pool. She then announces that she will take on the challenge naked as she tries to get out of the pool exposing her private parts that have been blurred. Griffin said, “I don’t really know why you wanted me to be naked for this but anything for the cause.”
Griffin then proceeded as the camera videoed her naked body while saying, “I’m going to keep my shoes on. I’m sorry, but I’m a classy lady.” Griffin then calls on Plaza from Parks and Recreation and McLean from Backstreet Boys to pour the buckets full of ice water over her head.

Reports say that as of August 29, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has raised over $1 million. The biggest donors were revealed as Leonardo DiCaprio and David Spade. Both gave $100,000 to the fundraising event.
Other celebrities who took the challenge with a twist are Charlie Sheen, Olivia Wilde, and B-Real. Sheen doused himself with a bucket full of cash, Wilde did the challenge using her own breast, and B-Real used marijuana instead of ice water who also addressed the growing drought all over the world.
