Helmets: Not Just For Common Folks Anymore

A message to ‘Brangelina’:

Whilst in Vietnam, please refrain from riding your fancy-boy Nouvo scooter without a helmet. Sure, no one else is, but that doesn’t mean you have to be wreckless and stupid. Not to mention, wise or not, you are role models. Do to the Viets a favour and slap on a rice-cooker.

Personally I think its just nice to see a couple of American A listers who can come to a place like Vietnam without security and without the usual ill-believed crap that they will be a terrorist target. Remember Die Hard Bruce Willis being too scared to fly to England?

They never said they wanted to be role models. Good on em. They look very cool.

At least they are being good role models for Americans if not Vietnamese.

My sea-foam green Minsk is cool, not these folk.

Any form of transport that has an expat club is not cool.

I must say you’ve got me there.

I was there when they arrived. Streets were closed near their hotel because people had come for a look.

I remember that they never came out of their rooms again because of the staring that Vietnamese do. Angelina has said some pretty controversial things about Vietnam since and they have never returned.
