MANILA - Celebrity couple Angel Locsin and Luis Manzano took the ice bucket challenge on Tuesday night, hours after being nominated by Anne Curtis to take part in raising awareness of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS.
Locsin and Manzano posted the same video of their dare on their respective Instagram accounts, which easily got thousands of likes within minutes.
Manzano passed on the challenge to his father, actor Edu Manzano, siblings Addie and Enzo, actress Alex Gonzaga, and singer Nikki Gil. Locsin, meanwhile, nominated Manzano's mother, Batangas Gov. Vilma Santos and her husband Sen. Ralph Recto, as well as their son Ryan.
Locsin and Manzano are the latest celebrity couple to take challenge together, after Bea Alonzo and Zanjoe Marudo, and Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia, among others.
While rules vary, the ice bucket challenge generally has participants recording themselves getting poured with ice water on the head. The video is supposed to be published online within 24 hours of being challenged.
Before getting drenched, a participant can tag other people to take up the challenge. Those who refuse to do the dare are expected to donate to the ALS Association, or any foundation pursuing research on the disease.
However, as it has unfolded on social media, celebrities tagged to do the challenge still make significant donations despite agreeing to take up the dare.
