mekki: Has that line ever really worked for a celebrity? I can't recall a time that it has. I think it really only works for people in office and not actors.


Here's the trick though... if it worked, you'd never hear about it. So it might work quite well and we're none the wiser.

I think that was the most embarrassing part of the story. Ford Fusion, seriously?

I remember watching that documentary about the Foo Fighters and them recording their last album in Dave Grohl's garage. You know what he had parked in there as he started the cleaning out process? A silver Honda Odyssey minivan. I had to pause the DVR and wrap my mind around the concept that Dave farking Grohl drives a soccer mom minivan.


Loading guitar gear is prob easier in a minivan.

Ah, the South Buckhead strip.  Favorite DUI trap of Atlanta cops.

Oh, APD will bust anyone.  Tyler Perry.  Elton John.  They don't care who you are.  Your money is perfectly green with them.

My only guess is that it's a rental?

Plus the 2013's aren't that bad.

My only other guess it's their "undercover" car. If I was a famous celebrity and didn't want to get noticed all the time, I'd make sure I had something like a Camry or Accord in the garage.

LonMead: Every time I hear someone use that "Do you know who I am?" line, I keep thinking about that scene in the movie RED where a guy asks Karl Urban's character that question. The response? "Of course I do."


I think the correct answer here might be "Yeah, you are that girl from Overnight Delivery."

A Terrible Human: quatchi: Line?...

Do you know who I am?

Lawls.

Gawd, I love stories where people actually try this and it fails so hard.

I've always wanted to see these people get the answer of "Yes I do and your work sucks".


I heard about this one guy named Barney Oldfield. Turn-of-the-20th-century race driver; first guy to drive a car 60 mph (1903); first guy to crest 100 mph at Indianapolis (1916). He got old, cars got faster, his places in the record books got blown away one by one. One day in those older years, he got pulled over for speeding and the officer went, "Who do you think you are? Barney Oldfield?"

Hey Einstein, if it worked you would never hear about it. That's the definition of "it worked" for this scenario.

While I've never pulled the "Do YOU know who I am?" card ... I did pull the "I'm actually good friends with your boss" card once.

One time, I was pulled over for speeding. I was late for an interview with the lieutenant governor at some dinner.

I was driving a car I'd inherited, so the registration wasn't yet in my name.

The license plate tags had expired.

Adding to the misery, I also managed to leave my new insurance cards at home in my haste.

I was dead to rights. Luckily I was very sober.

I told the sheriff's deputy, "I'm actually good friends with your boss... He can tell you all about me."

A few minutes later, the guy returns with just a fix-it ticket for the insurance cards.
He says that his boss -- the sheriff of the county -- expected to see me in his office first thing the next morning.

I brought in coffee and donuts along with my insurance cards. He heckled me at first, but we sat and chatted and then I was on my way.

PsyLord: WAS THE COP BLIND?!?!


No matter how famous you are, there's always someone who's never heard of you and wouldn't care if they did.

Unless politically connected.


Especially in Atlanta, they gave the producer of COPS a DUI not only did the they know who he was they didn't care.   Of course COPS stopped filming in Atlanta for a couple of years because of it.

After reading the linked article, maybe playing this character in "Election" wasn't that much of a stretch for her....

I never understood why a celebrity would risk it. You have a standard buttload of $$. Pay someone $40k a year to chauffer your ass around town. Heck, for that amount you could probably get a buff one that could double as a bodyguard / paparazzi bouncer / lawn mower in a pinch.

Hell, I'll do it for 35k.

Texas Gabe: Adolf Oliver Nipples: DUI trifecta in play... who will close it out?

Trifecta complete:

Reese Witherspoon
Al Michaels
The 3 Doors Down guy (it HAS to count)


That's a weak opener, but I guess it'll have to do since he killed a guy.

Probably about the worst thing you can say to a cop.
