Seen our TV advert? Then you’ll have seen our Dave giving one of our lovely huggy forklifts a good old cuddle.
On the 15th June 2013, we decided to take an ao.com forklift on the road to bring free hugs and happiness to the people of Manchester.
Anyone who gave our forklift a hug could have their photo taken and printed on a special ao.com fridge magnet to take home. We didn’t realise just how many people would be queuing up to take part!
In the eight hours that we were in Manchester’s Exchange Square, we made more than 1000 people happy, giving them free personalised fridge magnets, happy t-shirts, bubble pens and foam forklift hands. Everyone who had their photo taken was also entered into a draw to win £1000 worth of kitchen appliances.
As we plan to take our forklift on a tour of the UK, keep an eye on AO Life for where we plan to visit next!
