José Andrés does ALS Ice Bucket Challenge – Las Vegas style

University Commencement speaker José Andrés is one of the latest celebrities to participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, appearing in a video that featured a dozen fashion models, several champagne bottles, a pool and, of course, buckets of water.

The celebrity chef filmed his take of the viral fundraiser by the pool of the SLS Las Vegas Hotel and Casino surrounded by models in pink bikinis who were armed with champagne bottles and bowls of water.

Nominated by fellow chef Eric Ripert, Andrés tapped Al Roker, Gwenyth Paltrow and Craig Ferguson to complete the challenge before he was splashed with water and sprayed with champagne.

Andrés then fell into the pool as onlookers cheered and applauded.

All three of Andrés’ nominees made appearances in a video the chef created as part of his Commencement address this May.
