Finally! The day has arrived when I write a story about something other than the Toyota Prius! Civic Porn has landed!

Popular band, Fall Out Boy, is ramping up their 2007 Honda Civic tour by giving fans the opportunity to win a customized version of the stylish hybrid. From the site Thought Hacks,

“The band has created their own customized, eco-friendly ride with Fall Out Boy inspired designs and band autograph.”

Starting tomorrow, you can log onto the official tour site and register for a chance to win the pimped out green ride. Don’t be thinking that the technology is the only green thing about this car. The band also had hemp fabric installed inside — from the car seats to carpet, headliner and visors!

The car will be showcased at each venue on the tour and will be given away sometime at the end. Great to see Honda promoting the vehicle, but I’m curious to know if that’s the limit of their environmental promotions for the tour. Will there be any education at the concerts? Will people have the opportunity to contribute to environmental organizations or offset their emissions? With so many tours taking advantage of orgs like Reverb and GreenNotes to green the experience, it’s a shame if Honda doesn’t follow suit; especially when their press release calls this an opportunity to bring “innovation and environmental consciousness to the masses.”
