Guests got to “Drive Like Mike Lowrey” [Smith’s character in the Bad Boys films] and experience Porsche’s exhilarating driving academy on track. Guests got to make like Lawrence’s Marcus as well by participating in “Marcus’ Ultimate Snack Run,” a challenge course on foot themed around Marcus’ love of snacks, complete with prizes. Prior to the cadet academy, guests were treated to an advance screening of the film.

One of the lucky guests was US-based Filipino-American gamer content creator Dino Roman (dinocornel on social media), whose posts about the event even scored comments from Will Smith himself!

“Wtf bro I thought I was only watching an advance screening of Bad Boys Ride Or Die then Will and Martin showed up! I legit had to use my inhaler back at the hotel cause I was laughing too much it triggered my asthma 😅. Catch it in Philippine cinemas June 5 and June 7 here in the US!” posted Dino.

To which Smith commented, “Damn, we shoulda been throwing out inhalers instead of skittles”

Smith also commented on Dino’s post about the “On The Run Cadet Academy,” where the content creator mentioned that the film will open in the Philippines June 5. “Philippines! Love that,” commented Smith.
