By now, you've heard of the latest trend "The Ice Bucket Challenge" that's sweeping through social media, which is to help spread awareness for ALS; also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.

The challenge for those who aren't aware of it, is someone either dumps a bucket of ice water onto themselves or they donate money to ALS research; most people have done both; which is why over $4 million has been donated since the challenge started and videos have gone viral.

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, actor Justin Timberlake and New Jersey governor Chris Christie have all challenged fellow actor and late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge after they each completed it.

And then on Tuesday night's edition of "The Tonight Show," Fallon, along with actor Rob Riggle, Horatio Sanz and the Tonight Show band "The Roots" completed the Ice Bucket Challenge by dumping the water onto themselves as seen in the video.

Fallon then challenged the entire Jets team to complete the challenge and has given them 24 hours to do so. So we'll have to see if Rex Ryan and his team complete the challenge within the next day or so. Stay tuned for that potential video.
