UM Grad’s “Walk of Shame Shuttle” Premieres on VH1
In hindsight, I really wish that I would have thought of this sooner. But, I'm just glad that it's happening at all. VH1 Will be premiering a new show this week at 9pm called "The Walk of Shame Shuttle" it was created and developed by a University of Michigan graduate. It started out with her giving rides to friends after they didn't make it back to where they lived after a night out and a few cocktails. Back in college, she charged only $5 for a ride, a bottle of water and a high five as well. Now, she will probably be making a little more money than that, just to say the least. Actually, probably a lot more. I think this is a great idea, and on Mlive site, there is a trailer you can check out with some hilarious clips.
Now, I'm sure there will be a lot of people that will not love the idea behind the show, mostly because the origin of the walk of shame came with the association of sleeping with some or going home with them and not having a ride back. It generated in colleges across America and led people to walk across streets and campuses everywhere, all dolled up still from the night before. The entertainment value is high, but the creator of the show nailed it when she said that there needed to be a sense of compassion with this show as well. I'll be checking it out for sure. Does this show send a good message, or just take it for what it's worth?
