As part of the official choreography of publicity for the 405 freeway shutdown next month, the LAPD asked Ashton Kutcher and other celebrities — Lady Gaga among them — to tweet word to their followers. Kutcher did so about an hour ago, adding a personal plea for a little quid pro quo.
LAPD askd me 2tweet: 405fwy btwn 10 & 101 will b closed July16-17. In xchange I would like a free pass on that stoplight tickt IT WAS YELLOW
Kutcher has 7 million followers on Twitter. It only seems as if most of them are on the 405 at rush hour.
