HIP HOP STAR OFFERS CHAUFFEURED CAR: Rapper/producer Sean "P.Diddy" Combs has brought his entrepreneurial flavor to the chauffeured transportation industry by starting a chauffeured car service for drunk celebrities. (Stories here and here). In Hollywood, there is definite demand, ala Lindsey, Paris, Mel, Nick, etc.
While this is not a new concept -- smaller operators already have explored and experimented with such a service for non-celebs -- we at LCT applaud any constructive use of chauffeured vehicles. If every drunk driver called a limo or sedan for a ride home, the industry would see a drastic increase in revenue.
However, we do recommend that the vehicles used to pick-up drunk celebrities do not have any onboard bars -- either dry or wet.
So, we hope if P.Diddy offers the usual palette of black, comfortable sedans and stretches, that the limo bars be replaced with limo beds, or at least a good greasy breakfast buffet table. -- M.R.
