John Mayer: Don't Drink and Drive!

John Mayer: Don't Drink and Drive!

John Mayer just blogged about his admiration for his housemate Chad and the important message of, “Don’t Drink and Drive!” Check out his most recent blog:


I’m taking to the blog today to share something with you that I feel more passionate about than I saw coming. I want to make it short and sweet so that anybody who wants to re-print it can copy and paste without editing…

Went out to dinner Thursday night. My car. One glass of wine. Carpooled from dinner to go out to one more place. Everyone in my car. At the next spot, I do the Diet Coke with Lime thing. My favorite scotch (Lagavulin 16 year) arrives under my nose. “Can’t do it,” I say. Then I find out my friend has switched to Designated Driver and has a plan that involves everyone getting home safe. Cool. I love Lagavulin when the time is right. Now it’s the end of the night and I’m feeling wonderfully buzzy and ready to get dropped off to my house in my car, except the person that was going to follow my car in the DD’s car to drive him back isn’t in shape to drive either.

It’s 2 o’clock in the morning. I call my housemate Chad. Chad‘s sleeping. He was in the studio all day. I explain to him that I need him to jump in the back seat of my car, ride to the DD’s car and drive me back home. Of course Chad says “yes” and comes through like a champ. A champ, I say.

Here’s what I want to tell you:

If I, incredibly hot/fugly John Mayer can make that call, so can you.

The distance from the parking lot to my house was about 5 miles, mostly straight shot up the coast of Santa Monica, zero traffic. And I didn’t drive it. Me. The guy who gets the VIP velvet rope treatment in life.

Oh, and the call? It’s not the coolest you’ll ever sound. And the logistics? It’s kind of inelegant. You trace the same route twice when all you want to do is fall into bed. But you gotta do it.

This is all coming from a guy who you can be sure would have found a sexier way to get home if there was one available. And there just isn’t, especially in LA. (You can be sexy again the next day when you wake up with the rest of your big, beautiful life in front of you.)

I’m not writing this to earn golf claps, it’s just that if I’m going to stand in any way as an ambassador of something cool or influential, this is more important than any pair of sneakers or a guitar.

And to give a big high five to the Chads of the world.

See you around

He is so full of it man!

# 4

Good for him. I can think of several other celebrities who might need to take a lesson or two on this particular subject.

# 5

Now if only somebody cool would do the same thing . . .

# 6

I couldn’t agree more. (He seems like a laid back- dry sarcasm kind of guy I like him.) Dont drink in drive please you could kill ME the next time your on the road.

# 7

Huh. Don’t like his music, but this is very funny and smart. Good for him!

WTH. It takes him 10 paragraphs to simply say, “Don’t drink and drive.” His ramblings make him sound like an arrogant douche.

Why can’t the cheapskate call a cab?

I think it´s no problem to have three or four beer and then drive – you just should not be drunk !!!!

I’ll Be sure to take those words to the bank =/

Just another reason why he’s so awesome.

he did a good thing john and chad.

Hey, on your own blog, you’re aloud to make it all about you. Good for John, and Chad too.

yikes I must be tired ALLOWED not aloud sheesh

I think that that’s great for him.

John, just drive drunk, the rest of the celebrities do it, don’t worry nothing will happen to you. You can be like Ty Peddington, drive drunk and say you didn’t endanger anyone.

he’s really way too proud of himself and needs to stop tooting his own horn about being a star and getting “VIP” treatment and how even he can be in need of a designated driver. you play your guitar and sing for a living .. get over yourself.

john mayer is soooo amazing and i don’t understand why people judge him so cruely. He is so smart, funny, and sexy (I met him backstage and he is gorgeous in person). So don’t judge John. I am proud of him : )

Keep making great music Johnny!

Well, good for him for not driving, but why does he have a housemate? Can he not afford the mortgage? That’s just bizarre…

Good Job John! I’m a huge fan of his, and he is NOT your typical celebrity.

PEOPLE WAKE UP! He is basically making fun of himself. Wow, I love your post lola, just classic (NOT). Spam why don’t you? Hope your site goes down, looks like you have LOTS of users there. (What a load of bull$h1t).

He a musician and maybe the guy plays in his band. I love John’s music. I wish he would appear on tv more often or maybe he will appear here in Dallas TX soon.

I, for one, like John Mayer very much.
I think he’s way cooler than most out there in Celebrity-land, and is just being plain honest when it comes to drabbles such as this.

Here’s to you, John.

What a douchebag…
