(Newser) – Even in over-the-top Sin City, the stripper-mobile is an attention-getter. The Plexiglas-walled truck roaming the Las Vegas Strip features a stripper pole—and strippers, of course, albeit ones still wearing their skivvies. It has proven an effective marketing technique for Déjà Vu Showgirls, but if county commissioners get their way, it will soon be a thing of the past, the Sun reports.

“This is what Las Vegas is all about. You come here to see something you can’t see anywhere else in the world,” says the club’s marketing director, who claims the stripper-mobile has already doubled business. Some residents, however, find it “disgusting,” and commissioners say it could be dangerous—and illegal, since there’s a law that bars advertising-only vehicles from public roads.
