I don't know how many of you readers went to see Xzibit when he was at Evolution here in Victoria. In any case - we contacted him to see if he'd be willing to meet and discuss a Pimp My Ride idea while in Victoria. Sadly there is no way for someone who does not reside in the US (IP address checking by MTV) to submit a Pimp My Ride proposal to MTV.
The basic premise was this:
a) 1980s vintage VW Rabbit, to be donated to Wild Rose Rescue Ranch for them to use for running rabbits to/from the vet, and for snagging supplies
b) playing on the "Yo Dawg" meme, Xzibit and gang should have been able to leverage the "putting rabbits in yo Rabbit" gag for humor/ratings, plus poke fun at the "Yo Dawg" meme crowd
c) exposure via MTV would bring much needed attention (and hopefully help/donations) to Wild Rose Rescue Ranch
Not surprisingly; we did not get a response. One can only wonder at the volume of crap that flows into his inbox on a daily basis =/
But hey, if anybody reading this in the USA is feeling adventurous and wants to take this on - please go for it :)
