The stripper-mobile won’t be the talk of the town — or the nation — much longer.

Las Vegas attorney Jay Brown, who represents Little Darlings and Déjà Vu strip clubs, said the controversial Strip run of the U-Haul-like truck outfitted with Plexiglas walls to showcase clothed strippers is over.

“My client has authorized me to make it clear that due to concerns of County Commissioners Chris Giunchigliani and Steve Sisolak, and because my client wants to be a good citizen, effective immediately that truck is offline,” Brown said Friday afternoon.

The brainchild of Larry Beard, Déjà Vu’s marketing director, the stripper-mobile made national headlines and drew reactions ranging from disgust to high praise for the creativity of the marketing concept and its suitability to Las Vegas.

The county commission was scheduled to discuss the stripper-mobile Tuesday. Sisolak and Giunchigliani figured they might be able to shut it down on legal and safety grounds.

The women inside the truck twirled around a gleaming silver pole affixed to the middle of the cargo area and used a loudspeaker to urge spectators to come see them do their full routines at the strip clubs.

Beard said that in the truck’s short run, it had almost doubled business for Déjà Vu and Little Darlings.
