Actor Ian Somerhalder is planning to live off the grid this summer after aquiring a new mobile home. His tweets suggest in his desire to be close to nature Somerhalder may have struck a cross-marketing deal with Audi and Airstream – neither of them known for their eco-friendliness.
The Vampire Diaries hunk, who split from his Tvco-star Nina Dobrev has been telling the media he is throwing himself into his environmental work. But earier this year he shared a picture of his new hybrid ride and added the caption:
“My new baby ,my @Audi Q5 Hybrid. She’s waiting for me on the show room floor-going to pull my Airstream and get me into the woods!
Thank you…. everyone at Audi.
Now Somerhalder reveals he can’t wait to get his hands on the keys to his Airstream trailer so he can hit the road and enjoy the rest of his summer alone. Unusually, he has been given shots of his about-to-be delivered mobile home during its final production phases.
He shared a photo of his silver slug on wheels via his Instagram.com blog on Tuesday (06Aug13), alongside the caption, “My new baby Aistream (sic)-getting water tested in the factory. All Led,will use solar – be off the grid.
So excited for this,going to live riveted-Me,a river, bottle of Chablis,music.Take it all in…Smile”.
Somerhalder joins the likes of rocker Lenny Kravitz and actor Matthew MCConaughey among the list of celebrity Airstream owners.
