Video shows mock ‘ISIS Bucket Challenge’

Instead of the cold ice water, a red liquid – presumably depicting blood – sloshes down on a masked man

Published: Updated:

This may be the best Ice Bucket Challenge to combine the viral video craze with what’s in the news right now.

Militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria have been mocked by one social media user who has imitated what an
ISIS member would look like if he were to accept the challenge.

Instead of the cold ice water, a red liquid – presumably depicting blood – sloshes down on a masked man who stands in front of a black flag associated with ISIS.

It is unclear where the video was filmed.

ISIS militants overran most of Sunni Arab areas of Iraq after seizing the northern city of Mosul on June 10, and have proclaimed a caliphate straddling the border with Syria, where they also control vast swaths of territory.

The group’s bloody crackdown on minorities has made international headlines in recent months, as well as the beheading of American photojournalist James Foley earlier this month.
