The eldest son of Duck Dynasty stars Willie and Korie Robertson, John Luke, accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge from his father.
Hundreds of celebrities and sports stars across the US are getting soaked in the name of a good cause.
The Ice Bucket Challenge is aimed at helping strike out ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

People who participate are getting doused with ice water and then challenge other to do the same to raise awareness for the disease.
Willie Robertson and his trademark beard are the latest to take the challenge. Friends dumped water on him from the roof of his West Monroe, Louisiana, business, Duck Commander. He challenged his son, John Luke, professional baseball player Adam LaRoche and NFL player Matt Light to go under the bucket.
John Luke Robertson accepted the challenge and nominated his friends.
When the Governor of Louisiana announces that he will be coming to Duck Commander to present Willie Robertson with a commerce award, John Luke volunteers to give the introduction speech.

Duck Dynasty’s John Luke Robertson attended the annual Southeastern Livestock Exposition (SLE) Rodeo at the Garrett Coliseum in Montgomery, Alabama.
John Luke Robertson, 18, spoke with attendees prior to the rodeo’s start, took part in a meet-and-greet and participated in the opening ceremonies with his sister, Sadie Robertson, during Saturday’s matinee performance.
While speaking with the crowd, John Luke Robertson answered several questions, including one about how filming impacts his family and the way they spend time together. He responded by saying that while sometimes it can be stressful, they still enjoy being with one another.

Following his appearance, fans lined up at the coliseum hoping for a chance to meet John Luke Robertson and get their picture taken with him.
In addition to seeing the reality star, attendees were able to watch some of the top cowboys and cowgirls compete for record prize money during today’s rodeo.
Other entertainers set to appear at this year’s rodeo, which will continue at 7 p.m. tonight, include world champion bull rider Donnie Gay and local musical act Trotline. In addition, this year’s clown, Keith Isley, will keep rodeo lovers entertained throughout the performance.
The SLE Rodeo tickets, which are $16 for adults and $9 for kids, are on sale at the Alabama Cattlemen’s Association Office located at 201 S. Bainbridge.
On Duck Dynasty Season 5 premiere night, the bearded Robertson clan was debating the artistic superiority of the Air Bud versus Jason Bourne film franchise.
There was also contention surrounding the merits of group texting and emojis.
Jase, Jep, Phil, Willie and John Luke Robertson went on a hunting excursion. But they aren’t talking ducks. Rather they were in deep debate about all things texting related.
Jase Robertson said: “Group texts are the worst. They’re like a terrible technological snowball coming down a mountain and you can’t stop it… What was the original conversation? No one knows. No one cares. Stop having a conversation on my phone.”
This naturally led to discussion of emojis, of which John Luke Robertson is also a fan.

“Like smiley faces and people – animals sometimes,” he said.
John Luke Robertson continued to discuss emojis with his father Willie after duck hunting is over, saying: “There are all kinds of emojis.”
Willie Robertson asked: “What’s that? A bearded guy?”
John Luke answered: “That’s a monkey.”
Duck Dynasty’s newcomer Rebecca Robertson told John Luke that guys don’t really emoji.
Viewers were introduced to Rebecca Robertson, a Taiwanese foreign exchange student that Willie and his wife Korie adopted 10 years ago.
Duck Dynasty’s Sadie Robertson was part of her Louisiana high school’s homecoming court this fall along with her older brother John Luke.
John Luke Robertson stuck to a traditional black tuxedo and his sister Sadie enjoyed a few wardrobe changes, picking a strapless dress embroidered with bright flowers and cinched with a skinny black belt for the dance and wearing a chic red and black coat and a black wide-brim hat for her appearance on the field.

Homecoming weekend was a family affair for the close-knit Robertsons: father Willie escorted Sadie out on the field, a buouttionere tucked into his sport coat and a stars-and-stripes band around his head, and mom Korie and grandma Chrys helped design Sadie’s sophomore class float.
Sadie Robertson, who is also class vice president, served as a sophomore maid and John Luke was a junior escort.
“It’s fun to have my dad walk me across the field and see that he’s proud to be my escort,” Sadie Robertson said.
“My best friend, Anna Catherine, was a sophomore maid, too. We pretty much have done everything together since preschool, so loved getting to be on the court with her.”
The latest episode of Duck Dynasty shows John Luke Robertson totaling his father’s truck, and how Willie Robertson realizes he may be raising the two worst drivers in all of Louisiana.
John Luke Robertson did a number of Willie’s pick-up truck, so Korie and Jessica drive him to the Chevy dealer to pick up a loaner. In a rush to get to their mani-pedis, the women leave niece and nephew, Silla and River, with Willie Robertson.
Willie Robertson, 40, then remembers that all kids are trouble when he takes his niece and nephew for a ride in his loaner, a 2014 Chevy Silverado, and they cover it in ice cream.

Despite River’s constant whacking on his leg with a toy sword, Willie Robertson explains: “I’m gonna win points with Korie.”
The kids want ice cream and Willie Robertson wants to be “the best uncle in the world.” As he explained: “Saying no is a lot more difficult than saying yes, especially when they’re not your kids.”
Before Willie Robertson drives the new loaner truck out of the ice cream shop’s parking lot, Silla has had the first spill in the back seat. That eventually degenerates into the kids actually pouring melted ice cream onto the seats.
Lucky for Willie Robertson, John Luke shows up as he’s beginning to clean the truck cab.
This week’s Robertson family moral came from Willie: “Things are replaceable. Family isn’t. Especially Si.”
