“Cooler Than Me” singer [artist id=”3559974″]Mike Posner[/artist] wasn’t exactly all that cool when he was 17.
He recalls driving around in his first car on this week’s episode of MTV’s “When I Was 17,” airing Saturday at 11 a.m. ET/PT on MTV. The singer gives a shout-out to his great aunt on the episode — which also features Estelle and AnnaLynne McCord — for being gracious enough to give him her old car when he was 17.
“My Great Aunt Dorothy — hi, Aunt Dorothy! — she gifted to me her ’87 Volvo,” he recalled. “And it was a really cool car — in ’87. The only problem was, I got it in, like, 2005.”
The “Please Don’t Go” singer would try to assert himself on the road but found it hard with his clown-car horn. “The great thing about this car was that it had this kind of clown horn. I would be really mad, like people would cut me off, and I’d hit my horn, and it would be like ’beep beep’ and I was just like, ’Ugh.’ ”
We’re sure Mike has updated his vehicle now to something a little cooler with a more aggressive horn to help ward off aggressive drivers.
“When I Was 17″ — this week featuring Estelle, Mike Posner and AnnaLynne McCord — airs on Saturday at 11a.m ET/PT on MTV.
