Vice Ganda and Dingdong Dantes got soaked in the rain while Coco Martin rode on his amphibious vehicle at the 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival Parade of Stars.

Coco Martin used his personal amphibious vehicle as the float for his 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival entry, Jack Em Popoy.

This was because the actual float got stuck in the mud due to heavy rains.

This was one of the highlights of the 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival Parade of Stars, which took place at Paranaque City on December 23. 

Vice Ganda, Jessy Mendiola, and other stars present at the parade got soaked in the rain while riding their respective floats. 

Coco, who wore a denim jacket and a cap, rode on top of his Inkas Sentry Armored Personnel Carrier to greet parade watchers.

Anne Curtis, lead actress of Aurora, used her social media accounts to express her frustration. She felt bad about "abandoning their ship," referring to their float.

Their float was shaped as a ship because the movie revolves around a passenger ship named Aurora that sank. 

She wrote on her Instagram post, "Yung feeling na hindi ka nakasakay sa float nyo. Sakit sa heart. We waited as long as we could. Specially since I was looking forward to returning to the MMFF parade after 10 years. Pasensya na po sa mga nagantay. Hindi lang talaga nakaahon sa putik in time ang float ng AURORA. Kaya we had to abandon the ship but we hope you don’t abandon the film."


Toni Gonzaga, lead actress of Mary, Marry Me, documented on her Instagram stories on how they were able to remove the float from being stuck in the mud after four hours.
