DENVER – Clad in a white t-shirt, legendary quarterback and current Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway took the 'Ice Bucket Challenge' in a video published by the Denver Broncos on Wednesday.

He took the challenge after he was called out by Atlanta Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff.

The'Ice Bucket Challenge' is a viral movement aimed at raising awareness for Amyotrophic lateral schlerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease.

In the video, Elway is seen smiling after pouring a bucket of ice-cold water on his head.

He seems to recover quickly, and in true Broncos form, calls out rivals Tom Telesco of the San Diego Chargers and Reggie McKenzie, the general manager of the Oakland Raiders.
