Girl meets boy. Girl likes boy. And now girl can get down and dirty with said boy within minutes if she wants thanks to the most depressing thing to arrive on the dating scene ever... the ‘Hook-up Truck’.
Designed by conceptual artist Spy Emerson, on the outside it looks like a normal delivery truck. But on the inside it’s kitted out with a special ‘chamber’ including mood lighting, minimal furniture and temperature control. Oh, and complimentary condoms and a ‘camera ready option’. Gross.
Thankfully it’s only launched in the US so far (we’re SO hoping it doesn’t arrive over here), where it costs around £45 for a 30 minute slot. And customers don’t need to worry about going over traffic bumps in a vital moment – the truck stays parked during each tryst.
‘Lots of people are coming in… from people with roommates and no privacy to business people who need the truck on their lunch break’, says Emerson. Hmmm, think we’ll give it a miss thanks.
