Orange County Media Whores Clog the 101 Freeway

The Orange County “hip-hop” band “Imperial Stars” pulled their truck in front of traffic on the 101 freeway this morning to put on an impromptu concert that landed them in jail. No doubt, they’re going to get a few million dollars of media exposure out of the deal. We’ll see how much jail time they get stuck with. Or how purdy their respective cellmates find their mouths.

We have extreme mixed feelings about giving them any attention. But don’t tell us you didn’t watch the entire video, hoping they would get tased.
