In order to promote the Tesco Lotus Express chain in Bangkok, a unique stunt was set up in order to thank ordinary people using a surprise delivery.

The brand arranged for Doraemon-themed cups to be sent out by different methods of transportation, including RC cars, balloons and drones. Attached to each of these cartoon mugs was a note, which communicated messages of appreciation for all that these ordinary citizens do. As well as bringing smiles to many faces, the feel-good ad also reminds of the convenience that the supermarket store chain provides to busy people on the go.

The advertisement for Tesco Lotus Express is reminiscent of a stunt from Coca-Cola, which rewarded migrant workers in a similar way with beverages in cans via drone.
