Who's in Your Backseat?

By Liz Kelly

As we continue the documentation of bizarre celebrity superlatives, this one certainly deserves a mention:

Hollywood "It" duo Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie recently topped an poll asking participants to name who they'd most like as "cycle pillion passengers."

Come again?

pil·lion (pil'yen) n. 1. A pad or cushion for an extra rider behind the saddle on a horse or motorcycle. -- American Heritage Dictionary


The criteria for a desirable passenger aren't enumerated (Relative weight? Groping potential? Likelihood for stalkerazzi chase? Has own helmet? New parent?), but Brangelina apparently beat out several other celebs, including Ewan McGregor, George Clooney, David Beckham, Robbie Williams and Johnny Depp.

The survey, conducted by the U.K's Motorcycle Industry Association, coincides with the group's "National Motorcycle Week" campaign, which they hope will raise awareness about motorcycle safety.

A word to the wise: Riding a motorcycle with Brad Pitt on the back could quite possibly be one of the un-safest things I could do.

I wonder, though, what are the odds on getting Anthony Kiedis into my Volvo? Since we're into the realm of the clearly imaginary, how about Johnny Depp's "Pirates" paycheck into my bank account and Paris Hilton in Supermax?
