Hollywood Hipsters Start New Vehicle Affair

FLAKY & FINICKY: Hollywood-types are well-know for changing gigs, swapping out spouses and partners ("Shine On Liz, You Crazy Diamond!"), reinventing their images, "moving on". . . so it should be no surprise that the glitzy jet set, now canoodling at the annual Cannes Film Festival on the French Riviera, have DUMPED THE LITTLE TOYOTA PRIUS ("I think, it's like, we each need more space, ya know?") in favor of a younger, more desirable electric vehicle. Once the darling of luminaries striving to be greener than Kermit, the Priussy ferried many a high-profile celebrity into the media-studded awards-show drop-off lanes. But if the Hollywood hipsters and their assistants truly had a clue about green luxury vehicles, they would be patronizing en masse the as-yet unrivaled LINCOLN MKZ HYBRID and/or the ROYALE VERSIONS of that vehicle. Those U.S.-built hybrids provide the best mileage and comfort in the green zone so far, and have thankfully, finally jettisoned the Priussy from the chauffeured curbside to its rightful place in the commuter lanes. -- Martin Romjue, LCT editor
