Rapper/actor Romeo was involved in a car crash in Los Angeles on Thursday (31Mar11) as he drove to a charity event at a school.
The entertainer, who is currently competing in U.S. TV talent show Dancing with the Stars, was driving his luxury Porsche to the city's Audubon Middle School to donate a batch of computers to students.
But his journey was interrupted when his car was involved in a crash. The hip-hop star wasn't injured in the accident but his Porsche sustained damage to the front bumper.
Romeo - real name Percy Miller - confirmed the incident in a post on Twitter.com, writing, "Got (in) my 1st wreck today. What a way to start the day off. The Porsche is done... I realised bad things only happen so that you'll realise how blessed u (sic) truly are. Things can always be worst (sic). I Love life..."
The beautifully shot advert was released on Sunday and has become a significant hit.
The band re-post his video on their social media page.
