I won’t get into the debate on whether or not the Midnight Rider qualifies as a limousine, since it really doesn’t matter. Just take one look at the video and tell me that you’re not thinking the same “rolling brothel” thoughts that I am. Limousine or not, this thing is pure genius on the part of Michael Machado and Pamela Bartholemew, who designed the rig back in 2004. It’s based out of California, where the exchange of money for clothing-optional-recreational-activity is against the law. Nevada, the next state over, does indeed allow it in several counties, so I’d be willing to bet the Midnight Rider spends a fair amount of time over the state line.
Not counting the, um, adult themed entertainment, the Midnight Rider has a staff of five, including at least one bartender. The video shows the front and rear “lounges”, but I’d be willing to bet there’s at least one “VIP Suite”, reserved for, um, “contract negotiations” between entertainment and clients. I have no idea what it costs to rent this thing, but if I ever publish the great American novel, I’ll be hiring this for my book tour. If anyone has actually partied in the belly of this particular beast, let’s hear your stories.
