MANILA -- Comedian Vice Ganda accepted his friend Kris Aquino's challenge to do the ALS ice bucket challenge on Monday on the noontime show "It's Showtime."

But unlike other ice bucket challenges, Vice Ganda incorporated the stunt in a production number, as he performed Katy Perry's "Hot and Cold" before he was doused with cold water.

The challenge is part of a global campaign to raise funds and awareness for people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

After doing the challenge, Vice Ganda nominated actors Coco Martin and Richard Yap, as well as "It's Showtime" director Bobet Vidanes, to follow suit.

Vidanes immediately took up the challenge, also live on "It's Showtime."
