A true innovator in New Zealand had a dilemma recently. He wanted to eat KFC, but he wasn't at a KFC. So how would you, the reader, solve this age-old riddle?
Use a car You'd probably just have to go hungry or convince somebody to go and pick something up for you.
However, not everybody has to starve, as our guy here proved. His name is Ollie Mason-Clarke, and he runs the website King of Cheat Meals (which kind of explains the KFC). In order to score a bag full of food for him and his friend, he made arrangements with a local KFC branch and then flew his drone across town to pay for a meal and pick it up in the drive-through lane. Unfortunately, the drone wasn't able to carry an entire bucket of chicken back. But he did end up with enough food for him and his friend, and he didn't even have to leave his table in the park to get it.
Now, for those of you out there who may be skeptical by all of the viral marketing stunts that companies have pulled off in the past, Mason-Clarke insists that wasn't the case here. His intention wasn't to score KFC free publicity by using his drone. Rather, this idea was just a “fun project” he thought up, and for his A-plus effort, we got a dope video that you can check out above.
Drones. What in the world are people going to think to do with them next?!
