Ted Cruz did the Ice Bucket Challenge wearing a JJ Watt jersey

Pretty much everywhere you looked on social media in the summer of 2014, people were posting videos of the Ice Bucket Challenge.

That includes multiple 2016 presidential candidates -- among them Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz is joined by his wife, Heidi, and their two children, who finish off the video by pushing their dad into the pool.

Cruz, a native of Houston, Texas, even nominated local NFL star JJ Watt of the Houston Texans. He apparently wasn't the only one -- Watt tweeted at the time that he was too busy with camp to participate, donating $5,000 to the cause instead.

Cruz wasn't the only 2016 presidential candidate to join the trend. Then-reality star and current-GOP front-runner Donald Trump was joined by Miss Universe and Miss USA in his video:

Trump's GOP rival, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, also joined in, dedicating his effort to the memory of his friends 'taken by that awful disease.'
