Unlike in the common ice bucket challenges, Vice Ganda did the challenge as part of his production number. He performed Katy Perry's "Hot and Cold" before he was poured in with cold water.

"It po ay ginagawa namin para makapag-spread ng awareness para sa karamdaman na kung tawagin ay ALS. Ito ay isang karamdaman na nakakaapekto sa utak hangggang sa spinal cord. Ito po ay ginagawa upang ipaalam sa buong mundo ang ganitong uri ng karamdaman. Maraming di nakakaalam ng ganitong sakit kaya hanggang ngayon ay di pa nabibigyang lunas," Vice said.
