A restaurant in Bangkok has resorted to an ingenious way to stay afloat during the pandemic. 76 Garage, located in Lat Phrao district, is using hunky models as food deliverymen to rake in some extra moolah. It was known for its good-looking and friendly male staff even before the Coronavirus changed the rules of the world and introduced a new normal. The restaurant is simply falling back on tried-and-tested methods of 'attracting' customers during the lockdown. They launched an offer, wherein anyone within a 5km-radius of the restaurant can have their food delivered by a muscular hunk, as long as their order costs R720 or more than that.

Not only do the customers get to feast their eyes on the deliveryman when they get their food, they can also have their picture taken with him, if they want to.

The owner of eatery told Oddity Central that most of their waiters had worked as amateur models before they started working for him, so, they all agreed to take part in photoshoots to promote their novel delivery method.

She proceeded to order 1,000 kg of onions online and had them delivered at her ex's doorstep, with the message: "You made me cry for three days, now it's your turn." According to shandong.com, the delivery man had to single-handedly unload all the bags.
