Ubisoft Execs Take Ice Bucket Challenge In Front of Famous Notre Dame Cathedral

Yves Guillemot and Alain Corre get ice water dumped on their heads to raise awareness for ALS.


Assassin's Creed Unity

Ubisoft executives Yves Guillemot (CEO) and Alain Corre (EMEA executive director) have taken the Ice Bucket Challenge, a worldwide campaign that aims to raise money and awareness for ALS. The pair performed the challenge in style, too, getting buckets of ice water dumped on their heads as they stood in front of the famous Notre Dame Cathedral is Paris--a location also featured in this fall's Assassin's Creed Unity.

A person dressed as an Assassin from Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed series is the one to dump the water on their heads; another person dressed as a Rabbid from Raving Rabbids looks on. Guillemot and Corre also made monetary donations to the ALS Association, though the specific amount was not mentioned.

Guillemot and Corre challenged PlayStation executive Andrew House, Microsoft vice president Phil Harrison, and iconic Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto to take the challenge next.

Data released by the ALS Association this week showed that for the July 29-August 26 period, total donations were $88.5 million, compared to $2.6 million during the same period last year.
