2020 has been all about the home-delivery thanks to the Coronavirus, but one company in the UAE is taking that a step further by delivering mangoes via Lamborghini.
Fancy a plush lime-green Lambo rocking up to your pad with some vine-fresh mangoes?
Then simply drop AED100 at the Pakistan Supermarket in Sharjah on mangoes, and the managing director will drop them around. Oh, and he’ll also take you for a spin around the block in his AED1.2 million supercar, so you can get that all-important Insta snap. And why, you might be asking?
Well, the mangoes are considered the king of the fruit kingdom. And as Pakistan Supermarket’s managing director Mohammad Jehanzeb says, “The king should travel like a king.”
Man goes mango delivering
The plan to deliver mangoes by Lamborghini was rolled out via the supermarket’s Facebook page a week ago. And, unsurprisingly, it’s been a hit for the company.
“The idea is to put a smile on people’s faces and make them feel special,” said Mohammad.
“The response has been overwhelming. We have been besieged with orders. People in the neighbourhood stare in disbelief when I pull up outside a home with fresh mangoes and then take recipients for a spin,” said Jehanzeb.
“The joy ride was essentially meant for kids who have been sequestered at homes because of the coronavirus but adults are equally thrilled at the prospect of getting behind the wheels of my Lamborghini Huracán. I am happy to oblige them too.
Each order takes about an hour. We do about 7-8 home deliveries a day but are hoping to ramp up the numbers to 12,” he added.
