Literally hundreds of celebrities are taking part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but leave it to Dave Grohl to take it to a whole new level — in the process not only drawing even more awareness to the cause, but further establishing himself as The Coolest Man on the Planet, no pun intended.

While most participating celebs are perfectly happy to upload a lo-fi Instagram clip, Dave and his Foo Fighters (who were challenged by Zac Brown) have lovingly and hilariously recreated the infamous prom scene from Carrie, with Dave filling in for Sissy Spacek and a tub of ice cubes replacing a vat of pig's blood. Foos drummer Taylor Hawkins is Dave's pastel-tuxedo'd prom date, while bandmates Pat Smear and Nate Mendel play the pranksters behind this icy scheme.

The Foo Fighters have nominated their pal Jack Black, Carrie actor John Travolta, and Carrie creator Stephen King to take the challenge next. Jack and Stephen have already complied (see their more traditional but still amusing videos here and here, respectively). Can John Travolta top the Foos' Ice Bucket Challenge masterpiece? We have our doubts... but we'd sure like to see him try!
