British Men Love California Girls: Katy Perry Voted Most Popular Passenger

The other day when introducing a study about the most popular car colors, I made a point that pretty much every trivial automobile fact is linked to a research study or survey of some sort. A new poll done for the British MPH the Prestige & Performance Motor Show, which takes place from November 4 to 7 in London, helps to drive this point home. The poll delved into the ever-important query of who men and women would most like to see in the passenger seat and what car they'd most like to chaffeur them around in. 

Men actually aimed rather low, with Katy Perry and the Lamborghini Gallardo being at the top of their list. I can understand a Lamborghini, but if you're just filling out a survey, at least go for the Murcielago, Reventon, or even the Sesto Elemento concept—it's not like you're paying out of pocket. And, yes, Katy Perry is hot and sultry, but something about her just gives off the "I'm a giant tease and am going to leave you blue-balled and frustrated. You'll be lucky if I even dirty my sexy hands by touching you." In fact, this video demonstrates that I'm not the only one thinking that.

Plus, being tied to the greasy, ultra-creepy Russell Brand has made Perry damaged goods at this point, assuming that she's actually given it up for Brand. Long story short, even if Perry took enough time off from stimulating Elmo for you to pick her up in a tuned-up Gallardo, there's a good chance that you wouldn't see any more of Perry than you did in California Gurls. At least give yourself a chance for leveraging that Gallardo.

The announcement actually got more overtly sexual than Katy Perry ever will, stating that she "beat off stiff competition to become the favorite."

As for the ladies, it's not too surprising that they picked vampire mega-hunk Robert Pattison from the Twilight movies. I actually like their car pick—the Ferrari 458—better than the guys' choice, but still, it's a survey, you can have whatever you want, at least go 599 GTB or GTO.
