Now THIS is a car we’d like to ride in.
The world’s most famous drag queen — RuPaul — takes off his wig and gown for the online series RuPaul Drives. In these short webisodes, RuPaul shuttles famous faces around Los Angeles and interviews them about their lives. From Olivia Newton-John and Henry Rollins to Iggy Azalea, he gets some top talent, and in the exciting episode above he chauffeurs Cassandra Peterson, who is better known as the camp figure Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
We’re fans of Elvira, but this segment gave us insight into some new, fun, and surprising info. Here’s the episode breakdown:
Ru picks up the Queen of Halloween HERSELF, Cassandra Peterson AKA Elvira! They talk Halloween, putting Elvira to rest, growing up with the Mistress of the Dark as your Mother, and what it takes to pull off the perfect Elvira look for Halloween.
The relaxed atmosphere of the RuPaul Elvira video work well. He really asks thoughtful questions of his guests, so it feels like you’re watching a fun conversation rather than a traditional talk show interview. This webisode actually came out last year, but since we’re creeping up on Halloween we thought it would be perfect to show now.
RuPaul Drives is produced by World of Wonder, the producers of LOGO’s series RuPaul’s Drag Race, Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing, and the movies The Eyes of Tammy Faye and Party Monster, among others. You can watch more RuPaul Drives episodes on YouTube.
