If you live in New York and plan on doing some last-minute Christmas shopping online either today or tomorrow, you might be in luck! Not only will you still be able to get your purchase by Christmas Day (and that’s a guarantee), but it also could be delivered by a messenger dressed as Santa Claus. On a Vespa. Yes, really.
Online shopping platform Zady has partnered with Vespa for "Operation: Santa," a dreamlike holiday promotion that could quickly turn New York’s streets into Milan’s…crossed with the North Pole’s. Have you ever wanted to catch Santa in the act of a delivery? Now’s the time for Big Apple shoppers. According to Zady co-founder Soraya Darabi, if you place an order on the site from now until noon tomorrow, you’ll have the option to have your item delivered by a Santa-costumed courier on a state-of-the-art Vespa. Which ought to make your last-minute holiday shopping experience quite a bit more enjoyable, no?
