It can't be bottled or sold. It's not illegal, but feels like it should be. It affects everyone differently. The dim ones don't know what hit them, while the smart ones never want to let it go. It's a natural euphoria that sweeps through your body airlifting you into a Pepsi commercial. It's va va voom, and we want it back!
You don't have to be in love to catch va va voom vapors. In fact, you don't have to really know the person at all. But once you feel it, you are drawn in by a magnetic force. According to wordreference.com, "Va va voom originated in the 50's; representing the sound of a car engine being revved."
Fast forward to the Renault Clio Va Va Voom TV commercial featuring burlesque stripper Dita Von Teese. This controversial car ad is heating up in the UK, and has spawned webisodes featuring the King & Queen of Va Va Voom. Host Chris Martin asked people on the street to name celebrities who rev up their engines, while Facebook fans voted for their favorites. Some of the most popular va va voom personalities include Halle Berry, Lady Gaga, Johnny Depp, and Colin Firth.
For some va va voom strikes instantly. For me it was ignited by a kiss. I felt it on our second date, when my husband took me to of all places, the Chicago Auto Show. Subsequently, I am reminded of it every night in bed, while I lie awake listening to his rambling exhaust pipe.
