The owner of Winnipeg’s Six Pines put a twist on the ALS ice bucket challenge on Wednesday – using green slime instead of ice water.

James Thevenot opted to use slime in honour of the 30th anniversary of the Ghostbusters movie being released.
“My daughter and son-in-law and the grandkids had challenged us to the ice bucket competition for ALS and we decided to put a twist on it and do it with slime,” said Thevenot.
Six Pines is an agri-tourism spot just north of Winnipeg that offers farm tours and field trips in the summer and a spooky haunted attractions during the fall.
Thevenot already owned a Ghostbuster’s car and did the challenge in a Ghostbuster’s jumpsuit.
He also decided to challenge a few of the movie’s stars to try it next.
“We’re challenging Billy Murray and Dan Aykroyd to do the same,” he said “We’ve got a little bit of a connection with Dan Aykroyd. We’d really love him to get involved.”
