Rapper 50 Cent has challenged his former friend/current enemy Floyd Mayweather to a special version of the Ice Bucket Challenge. Instead of pouring ice water on his head, 50 has offered a $750,000 donation if Floyd can read one page of a Harry Potter book.

50 is known for his publicity seeking ways, so it remains to be seen if he would really pony up if the boxing champ passed the literacy test, but it seems like Mayweather has no choice but to try and call his bluff.

It also seems the irony of challenging someone's literacy while being unable to say "ALS" properly is lost on 50 Cent.
