Stripper pole for your bakkie?

STRIPPING WHILE ON THE GO: Need to deliver an exotic dancer to the bundus? The new hitch pole could provide your adult entertainment the mobility it needs. Stripper not included…

Large rims, massive fenders, a load bay converted into a swimming pool... in the world of bakkie accessories there's no limit to what you can add to your ride.

A US company, however, has perhaps capped everthing with... a mobile dance pole.

The hitch pole can be attached to any bakkie or SUV and allows a scantily clad dancer to gyrate on a platform.


The 2.1m pole by Platinumstages.com pierces a metre-square platform that floats about 1.5m off the ground. The steel frame and stage can support a 90kg stripp...er, exotic dancer and is available in polished stainless steel or brass and can be ordered in either 4.5 or 5cm diameter.

This mobile stripping planet retails for the equivalent of R3 340.

Why would anyone need this? Perhaps as a great surprise at any outdoor bachelor party...?
