There’s a new sheriff in town and his name is “BMW Dog,” better known as Luigi Maestro by his close friends.
Luigi, the five-year-old Shih Tzu, has been photographed recently riding around in his remote-control Beemer on the Upper East Side in New York City. Normally I can’t stand Shih Tzus or insane publicity stunts by people in NYC, but for some reason I love this dude.
Maybe it’s the fact that his name is Luigi Maestro, or that this is the dumbest story ever been published in a newspaper (S/O to the NY Post). Or maybe it’s that we never actually found out what happened to “Barbie Jeep Girl” at Texas State, but this is a viral alert I can get behind.
Luigi’s owner and chauffeur, Anisha Lakhani, used to teach a couple of my friends at Dalton, a private school here in New York City. Now she’s an author of Schooled, a fictional book about a young female teacher who lands a job at an elite school in Manhattan.
