Jay Leno is an Über driver for a day

Night after night for year after year, you stared at the front of Jay Leno’s head while he hosted The Tonight Show. But if you happen to order an Über Tuesday night in Los Angeles, you may find yourself staring at the back of his head.

Yes, the noted aficionado of cars and motorcycles is serving as an Über driver for one night only to promote his CNBC series Jay Leno’s Garage, which premieres Oct. 7.  

Über has created a stunt for its ÜberBLACK service (that’s the more expensive limo option that you probably don’t use) in which Leno picks you up in disguise (presumably not made of denim). “You won’t know it’s him upon arrival, but if you’re one of the lucky ones, Jay will reveal his true identity during your ride,” reads the announcement. “Fortunately, the King of Storytelling is great at small talk, so you’re sure to have an interesting conversation!”

To win the opportunity to converse with the late night legend while going 34 m.p.h. — perhaps in one of his countless vintage automobiles? — you must find yourself in the L.A. area Tuesday night, open the Über app between 5–10 p.m. PT, request a ride through the ÜberBLACK option and then put on your orange “I’m With Coco” wig. (Maybe don’t do that last thing.)

The best part? While you two make all sorts of Jaywalking jokes cruising through the city, your ride in the Leno limo is free.
