Celebrity hitchhiker of the day: John Waters

Friday, May 18, 2012

Indie band Here We Go Magic were driving in their van through Eastern Ohio this Wednesday, when they came across an unusual hitchhiker - cult movie director John Waters, who apparently is one of those people who hitchhikes a lot.

The band's bassist, Jen Turner, spoke to The DCist about it:
We pulled up and we saw him and everyone went, "That's definitely John Waters." We opened the door and I said, "Hello how you doing? Where ya coming from?" And he said Baltimore. We were like, "Uh huh," totally knowing that he was from Baltimore. So we said, "Come on in!" He got in the van and he got all tangled up in the seat belt, it was really adorable. That was the first thing that happened. We're traveling in a van and there are all these seat belts that block your way. You know, the ones that go from the side to the seats in the middle.


We were like, "What on earth are you doing this for?" He was like, "I have a lot of control in my life and I just wanted to let go of the reins a little bit, have an adventure." He's such a true artist and it's so cool!


Well, that day he had been standing there for many hours. I guess no one recognized him. Not to mention he was wearing a hat that said "Scum Of The Earth." I don't know if that was helping him or not. He had been hitchhiking for a few days from Baltimore, I think. He said that half the drivers that picked him up knew who he was and the other half didn't know who he was.
