Rory shared the ice bucket* challenge (which aims to raise awareness about motor neuron disease or ALS) with Tiger Woods.

Bush “AKA 43″, Wayne Rooney and Meghan Markle (as seen on TV’s Suits).

What we really love though, is the way Rory delivered his line as if he was telling us which letters Sesame Street was brought to us by today.
