One restaurant recently thought up an innovative way of getting around a college campus’ ban on food deliveries.
On its online ordering platform, the fried chicken joint, located in Dalian near to the Luxun Academy of Fine Arts, informs potential users that “Luxun Academy won’t let us in? Not to worry, we’ll fly to you.”
And last week a video was published on Chinese social media showing them doing just that, with a drone touching down in the center of campus while carrying a bag of take-out, creating quite the sensation.
Btw, the delivery was free of charge.
However, the college has quickly responded by contacting the police, prompting an investigation into the drone delivery. Recently, new tighter drone regulations were instituted in China, mandating that owners register drones under their real names.
In the past, a number of Chinese universities have also banned campus food deliveries, citing safety and food quality concerns. Back in 2015, food deliverymen in Heilongjiang came up with a slightly less innovative way of getting around these restrictions — climbing up the campus walls.
