It’s an ice bucket challenge whose effects will be felt further than your Facebook news feed.

Justin Davidson from Manhattan, Kansas, said he was going to help girlfriend Shelby Muha with her ice bucket challenge. An innocent enough offer, no?

But after her nomination speech, and the pregnant pause that results when Davidson doesn’t drop any buckets of ice water on her, Muha turns around to find Davidson kneeling on the ground behind her, ring in hand.

Then he dumps ice water on her.

Then she dumps ice water on him. Then they embrace. And that, kids, is the story of the very first ice bucket challenge proposal.
