Who Needs ID, When You Have Vanity Plates?
According to dailymail.co.uk, the words ‘UK VIN’ were spelled on his vanity plates, giving straight clues about who’s driving the black SUV. Driving right behind him, in a black Jaguar, was his wife, Tanya. It seems the vanity plates trend runs in the family, since Tanya also had ‘UK TANYA’ spelled on her car's plates.
Vinnie, also known by the nickname ‘The Axe’, started his career as a professional footballer, playing in the English Premiership. He leapt to fame when a photographer snapped him "marking" Newcastle United's Paul Gascoigne by grabbing his testicles during a match. He has played for Wimbledon, Leeds United, Sheffield United, Chelsea, and Queens Park Rangers.
Vinnie and his wife Tanya are often seen together in public. However, having their name imprinted on their license plates, riding in convoy in Hollywood, that’s one lousy undercover, if you ask us. The couple was basically asking for celebrity recognition. Hey, Vinnie! If the vanity plates doesn’t work, try putting LED’s on the car that say ‘I R FAMOUS’. Maybe that will attract the fans.
