RICHMOND, Va. — The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) paid tribute to the Fast and Furious franchise and rapper and actor Chris “Ludacris” Bridges with a highway sign that went viral over the weekend when it caught the attention of Luda himself.
The sign, seen on highways across the Commonwealth reads, “Driving fast and furious? That’s ludacris.”
Bridges shared a snap of the sign on his Instagram page with the caption “Virginia I love you back!” and asking if the sign should be on every highway. VDOT responded to his post with “YES it should be on every highway!”
The Atlanta rapper is well-known for his role in the Fast and Furious franchise. The ninth installment “F9: The Fast Saga” hit movie theaters on Friday, one of the first blockbuster films to premiere in theaters since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
