Pras Michel, gets doused by his friends for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Sunday, Aug. 31, 2014 in Pyongyang, North Korea.

*Rapper Pras Michel has taken the ice bucket challenge in a country that doesn’t take kindly to Americans.

The former Fugees star jetted to North Korea last week and took the chance to dump ice water on himself for charity during a visit to Pyongyang, where Western influences are banned.

Pictures show the musician being drenched with water buckets at the edge of a river, and he tells the Associated Press, “I thought I’d put a little twist to it. When we go to places, my crew, we stick out. You can tell instantly these guys aren’t from this neck of the woods. But the people have been good to us.”

He went on to nominate his former Fugees co-star Lauryn Hill and British royal Prince Harry for the stunt, which raises money and awareness for the ALS Association.

During his trip to the country, Michel also claimed to be the first American to tweet from North Korea, writing in a post: “First #American to tweet from #NorthKorea very interesting place…”
