Tampa 'Strippermobile' grinds to a legal halt... but not for the reason you think [w/video]
Tampa Strippermobile gets shut down – Click above to watch video after the jump
To advertise the Déjà Vu gentlemen's club in Tampa, Florida, the establishment's visionaries installed a pole in the back of a box truck and then fitted plexiglass wall inserts so that outsiders could see in. The result: a rolling strip show... for everyone. Tampa authorities closed the show down last week, but not because of the women doing pole dances at stop lights. It turns out that the mobile display isn't breaking any laws. No, it was shut down over issues with the truck's Nevada license plate.
That's ironic because the truck's "career" began in Las Vegas, but city officials there – in sin city, of all places – ran it out of town. In Tampa, on the other hand, the strippermobile will be back for more action once the registration kinks are worked out. The truck's owners have promised to curtail certain types of performances until a certain hour and to only trawl bar areas of town. This agreement has made the city, Déjà Vu, and the First Amendment one big happy family. Follow the jump to see the pole-tacular video.
