WASHINGTON (AFP) - Former president George W. Bush took the so-called Ice Bucket Challenge in support of Lou Gehrig's disease research on Wednesday, and challenged his Democratic predecessor Bill Clinton to do the same.

"To you all that challenged me, I do not think it's presidential for me to be splashed with ice water," Bush said while sitting on a sunny porch dressed in a T-shirt.

"So I'm simply gonna write you a cheque," he added in a video posted on YouTube.

His wife Laura then appeared and doused Bush in icy cold war. The former president, who served from 2001 to 2009, let out a loud "oww" in shock and pain.
