It’s 2023, and by now, we were supposed to have flying cars, time machines, and pizza delivery that teleported the pizza to us.
Okay, maybe I made that last one up, but I’m just trying to say that for all the hype that the “future” was supposed to bring, I’d say we’ve underperformed as a human race based on the expectations. Just go back and watch The Jetsons and tell me that I’m wrong.
However, we’ve seemed to have hit a technological breakthrough here if this story is true. Apparently the popular pizza franchise Domino’s has decided to up the pizza delivery game with the next advancement in food transportation: jet packs.
You read that right.
Domino’s pizza is getting into the jetpack delivery game, and they tested it out this past weekend by delivering pizza and other Domino’s menu items to people attending the Glastonbury Festival in the United Kingdom.
And what a fitting time to have a “rocket man” take to the skies to deliver some pizza, because Elton John was headlining the historic music festival that night.
Coincidence? I think so.
Assistant public relations manager for Domino’s Sam Wilson told Jam Press:
“When we realized pitching up to serve slices inside the festival was impossible, we took inspiration from this year’s headliner to launch our own rapid delivery trial, it was a bit of a no-brainer.
So, this year we wanted to take a giant step towards and trial our very own rocket man service to help hungry campers get a slice of sky-high satisfaction in the future.”
The high tech pizza delivery suit was designed to keep both the operator safe and the pizza warm. As you could guess, the jet pack was pretty expensive, with the estimates of cost being around $125,000 dollars.
The footage below shows off Domino’s latest pizza delivery system, and though I’m pretty positive (around 90%) that it is real, there is still a part of me that feels like it’s too good to be true.
