All that seemed to be in the past as of Monday night, when Will.I.Am and Pussycat Dolls member Nicole Scherzinger rode in the IAMAUTO to a listening party for Will.I.Am's new album at the Avalon. Shortly afterwards, Will.I.Am's Twitter feed became an anguished stream of APBs for his missing ride, including the hashtag #givemebackmycar, which has not proven all that effective in previous stolen vehicle cases.
Later Tuesday, a Will.I.Am representative e-mailed TMZ saying "Everything is fine, he has his car." The celebrity news service also reported Will.I.Am's pleas to Twitter were never followed up with a call to an actual police agency to report the car stolen, and might have beena the case of someone partying beyond the clock-out time of the valet service.proclaimed his car still missing, saying "Im not going to the police...spread the word via tweets in case I'm getting punk'd. I don't want to waste tax dollars on pranks." He was immediately flooded with spoof photos to the #wheresmycar hashtag, with people asking "is this your car?"
As of this writing, the whereabouts of a white spaceship that Will.I.Am values at $700,000 is still unknown, despite the reach of Twitter. Please, people, stop phunking with his ride.
