Irony Was Not Defined Until Lindsay Lohan Became A Spokesperson for Car Insurance

There have been a great many ironic occurrences in the world of celebrity culture, and yet, I can’t think of one that matches up to the recent news of Lindsay Lohan’s intent to represent esurance (the jankest of all car insurance options). In many ways so wrong and so right, Lohan is both the worst and best person to advocate for insurance.

With a driving track record that has been difficult to keep tabs on in terms of just how much of a, pardon the pun, wreck it is, some of the highlights of her driving career include: getting arrested for a DUI in 2007 after crashing into a median, getting another DUI later that year while taking a thrill ride down the Pacific Coast Highway, hitting a baby stroller in 2010 while driving in West Hollywood, and, most recently/notoriously, crashing into an 18-wheeler on the Pacific Coast Highway (apparently one of her favorite places to fuck shit up).

While her advocacy for car insurance makes sense considering she’s needed it upon numerous occasions, it also seems to be the embodiment of selecting an antithetical spokesperson. Even Paris Hilton or Britney Spears, who’ve both had their fair share of accidents, might have been better choices. Or better yet, all three drivers (once pictured together in a car without Los Angeles imploding) together to reap maximum irony.
