Subban.

“We heard your challenge and, absolutely, we’re up to the challenge,” said Trudeau in a video posted to Twitter that got thousands of retweets and likes.

The couple sang the song half in French and half in English while at the Moisson Montreal, where they were making Christmas baskets for people living in poverty.

Challenge accepted and completed, @PKSubban1. Jingle all the way! #CanadaCarolshttps://t.co/VwXLTk0F46

Subban issued the challenge Thursday as part of the #CanadaCarols campaign, an initiative of the P.K. Subban Foundation in partnership with the Air Canada Foundation.

#CanadaCarols aims to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network and the Montreal Children's Hospital by challenging people to post their own versions of “Jingle Bells” online.

“Hey Justin Trudeau, I know you're a mastermind when it comes to politics and you have great hair, but can you sing?" Subban said in his challenge video, filmed from inside the Bell Centre.

Hey @justinbieber we all know you can sing! Share a version of Jingle Bells & bring cheer to sick kids #CanadaCarolspic.twitter.com/7Yuq5B4ve4

Other public figures who have responded by sharing their own versions of “Jingle Bells” include CTV’s Canada AM hosts Marci Ien, Bev Thomson and Jeff Hutcheson. Here’s their version.
