Faafoi’s chilly challenge
Not even politicians are immune to the nominations of the latest social media faze, The Ice Challenge.
Mana MP Kris Faafoi had buckets of icy cold water poured over him last Friday as part of the viral social media challenge.
In The Ice Challenge, people have between up to 48 hours to complete the task, which involves having buckets of ice tipped over them, nominating others to do it, and then donating $10 to cancer research.
If the challenge is not completed, the participant donates $100.
Ice has been flying off the shelves of supermarkets and gas stations around Porirua as people prepare for their midwinter freeze.
Icy times: Mana MP Kris Faafoi completes The Ice Challenge with the help of his brother, Lance.
