RICHMOND, Va. -- Chris "Ludacris" Bridges was wowed to see a reference to himself and the newest "Fast and Furious" movie pop up on VDOT's electronic message board signs in the Commonwealth.
The Grammy-winning rapper, actor and entrepreneur took to Instagram Saturday to post a photo of a sign reading "DRIVING FAST AND FURIOUS? THAT'S LUDACRIS."
Ludacris posted that he could not believe the sign was real and asked "should this **** be on every highway?"
"Virginia I love you back!" he wrote.
VDOT officials replied on Twitter, "We ❤️ you, too!"
And in response to a woman who posted a pic of the sign along I-95 near the Atlee exit in Hanover County and chided, "aight now Virginia, that’s enough," VDOT officials replied, "We’re trying our best."
