Baltimore or Bust: John Waters Spotted Hitchhiking in Ohio

Share the News

It was only last year that John Waters championed hitchhiking as “a great way to meet people, and to have sex” and claimed that he’d stuck out his thumb everywhere from Baltimore to San Francisco. And apparently now… Eastern Ohio. The famed film director was spotted by indie rock band Here We Go Magic.  They told the story to DCist:

“Getting back on the highway this morning, there was a man at the side of the on-ramp with a sign that read ‘to the end of Rte 70.’ Jen wanted to pick him up, but we drove past him. As we passed by, our sound guy said ‘John Waters’ Luke said, ‘Yep, definitely John Waters.’ We got off at the next exit and circled back. He was still there. We pulled up, opened the door and asked where he was coming from. ‘Baltimore,’ he said. And we said ‘Get in, sir.’ ”
