Drive to get Free Gas this morning in Century City
To promote their new series "Drive", Fox is giving away free gasoline at the Unocal 76 at the corner of Beverly Glen and Santa Monica Blvd. near the mall in Century City. Don't get fooled by the old Google satellite image that shows SM Blvd. before they improved the roads. This is the 76 across the street from the Walgreens (formerly the charming Santa Glen Market) and two blocks away from the McDonald's. LAist used to pump gas there in the '80s when it was all-full-serve.
According to the Mayor of Television you can expect some tv stars to do the pumping this morning:
...to demonstrate just how desperate actors can be to keep their jobs, cast members Nathan Fillion, Kristin Lehman, Taryn Manning, Kevin Alejandro, Dylan Baker and Emma Stone will be on hand to squeegee your windshields. So show up in your Hummer and see if you can bankrupt Rupert Murdoch.
All we know is we have a brown coat we'd like Mr. Fillion to autograph as he's checking the air in our tires.h/t blogging.la
