It’s the MMDA’s fault! It’s the flood’s fault! It’s Juaning’s—that’s a typhoon, by the way—fault! Law student and now infamous social media star Christopher Lao played the blame game in the video that made him nothing short of a celebrity. The video, a GMA News report, showed Lao drive his sedan through a heavily flooded Mother Ignacia Street, causing his car to float. After he and his car were safely “ashore,” Lao launched an emotional tirade during an interview with 24 Oras reporter Jun Veneracion. “Tingnan mo, who will tell me? Who will tell me? Really, did you guys even tell me? Nobody even stopped (me), nobody informed (me). It's like people were waiting for somebody to just do that,” he exclaimed.

The footage generated several Facebook hate pages, blog entries, and tweets against Lao as well as spoofs of the interview. After several traumatizing months, however, Lao turned everything around by lampooning himself in an insurance commercial.
