Cute...like Hatsune Niku!

Here at Consumerist, we’re fond of cross-cultural exchanges that involve fast food. Okay, we just like anything that involves fast food.

Branded Vrooming Noises Are Way Better Than An Internal Combustion Engine

I can’t be the only one around here who read The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary as a child and was disappointed that toy vehicles that move if you make vrooming sounds don’t exist in the real world.

Which is why your pizza can now be delivered on a scooter that makes human-recorded vrooming sounds and advertises Domino’s as it rolls down the street. [More]
