In a statement provided to BuzzFeed, PaddyPower, the internet gambling company that financed Dennis Rodman’s “Popemobile,” says: “Unfortunately our pimped-up Popemobile got stuck in bad weather in Northern Italy – which meant Dennis couldn’t do the rounds of St Peter’s Square in quite the style we intended! However he did manage to make quite an exit in it.”
A spokesman for PaddyPower confirms that Rodman is riding inside the steamy vessel in this photo.
