Chris Evans and His Dog Take the #22Pushup Challenge
Surely you’ve seen them by now…videos plastered all over social media showing people from all walks of life doing 22 pushups to raise awareness about the staggering number of US veterans who commit suicide every day.
Sponsored by 22Kill.com and labeled throughout the internet as , s and challenge among others, this movement is showing up all over, and Hollywood certainly has not been excluded! Stars like Anna Faris, Chris Pratt and Scott Eastwood, to name a few, are lending their celebrityhood (and muscle power!) to this viral internet awareness challenge (ice buckets ringing any bells?).
And while we find those and the many others who are showing their support to this noble cause to be inspiring, we simply ADORE some with real ‘animal’ appeal!
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who was nominated by the always funny Chris Pratt, tickled our funny ‘bone’ by laughing as his sweet French Bulldog Hobbs licked his head throughout his push ups! The kisses even made The Rock lose count, but the adorableness was worth it!
And then, we melted when the hunky Chris Evans’s pooch simply could not let Evans alone while he did his push ups. Giggling as he playfully told his dog, “Get out of the way!” Captain America’s best friend stole the limelight, nudging, snuggling and licking Evans all throughout the challenge.
But really, folks…Evans in turn challenged buddy and fellow actor John Krasinski, and he did not disappoint!
Inspired by the adorable pups that his buddies had shared the spotlight with, Krasinski invited his Labrador Retriever, Finn, into the video, hoping for some of the animal magnetism that the other videos had displayed.
Always dryly hilarious, Krasinski told Finn to, “Be more adorable!” and chastised (tongue-in-cheek, of course) Finn for, “Doing nothing!”
We’d dare say he’s wrong…Finn’s nonchalant attitude simply stole our hearts…while we were laughing at the same time!
We think that the honor given to our veterans by these Hollywood stars is a great tribute, and we love them even more for including their furry family members!
