WATCH: Plan to deliver pizza by reindeer ends up hilariously
ISHIKARI, Japan: A known pizza chain is testing an unusual mode of pizza delivery in solution to weather difficulties – and it’s delivery by reindeer.
Domino’s Japan announced it is currently testing out the possibility of using riderless reindeer to deliver pizzas in the snowy north of the country amid expectations of a particularly harsh winter.
The company released pictures showing how the pizza warmers mounted to the reindeer’s backs would work, as well as photos of reindeer training to be pizza-delivery deer on the grounds of a driving school in the icy city of Ishikari, Hokkaido.
The video reveals the plan still has some kinks, such as ensuring the pizza warmers remain affixed to the reindeer and preventing the animals from wandering dangerously into roads.
