A dancing police officer, the Kennedys get all wet and rappelling for a good cause: All the video that will have you talking is in Take A Look At This! We all have our go-to moves but this Kansas City Police officer's are truly special. He was caught on camera over the weekend, strutting his stuff with some neighborhood kids on the city's east side. And while he does seem to be holding his own during this impromptu dance-off his brethren at the Kansas City Police Department disagree, joking on their Facebook page that maybe dance lessons are in order. Members of the Kennedy clan got all wet for a good cause. "Today I am nominating my whole family to dump buckets of ice over their heads for ALS," said one of the Kennedy's. And, it wasn't just the younger members of the family, Robert F. Kennedy's widow, Ethel, joined in the fun with a special challenge for {resident Obama to step up and take a dunk. "Welcome to Cape Cod President Obama, I nominate you," she said. The ice bucket challenge is a campaign started in Beverly, Massachusetts, encouraging people to pour buckets of cold water over their heads to raise awareness for ALS. And, speaking of good causes, dozens of would-be mountain climbers went "over the edge" at an NFL landmark to raise money for the Special Olympics. Participants had to pay $1,000 each for a chance to rappel down the side of legendary Lambeau Field in Wisconsin. Former Green Bay Packers Bill Schroeder, Tony Fisher and Dexter McNabb were on hand to watch them drop. The goal was to raise $80,000 for the Wisconsin Special Olympics.
