There have been a number of fads to sweep the internet, from the mannequin challenge to the ice bucket challenge. And it looks like Alabama’s athletic director Greg Byrne is taking the internet’s latest challange head on.
Byrne, in a video posted to his Twitter account, took part in the whipped cream challenge. In the video, Byrne takes a whipped cream pie to the face after being nominated by TCU Athletic Director Chris Del Conte. Byrne had the pie smashed into his face by Lawson Schaffer, a fan favorite of the Alabama basketball team.

After the video, Byrne nominated ESPN host Rece Davis and men’s basketball coach Avery Johnson to be the next participants in the whipped cream challenge. Not nominated was Alabama football coach Nick Saban, who I’m sure a large number of people would love to see take a pie to the face.
Byrne is in his first year as Alabama’s athletic director after holding the same position at Alabama.
