There’s very little magic to be found in commuting. It’s a grind, no matter how many podcasts you get to listen to or all the sights of the capital you get to see. Nobody is rich enough to avoid public transport entirely (not true) so finding a way to spice up your journey from bed to desk.
When you think horse and carriage, special events come to mind. Well, that or medieval times where horses were the only option. These days they’re more of a luxury reserved for Disney fantasies and romantic dates in Central Park. Anyway we’re talking about unicorns not horses. Let’s stay on topic.
Delighting commuters and children alike, from the 26th to the 28th October, London workers have the opportunity to be picked by unicorn cabs from various stations across the city.
Locations include Monument, Canary Wharf and Southwark. The service is entirely free and allows you to ump into a rainbow-coloured carriage pulled by unicorns. They’re called ‘unicabs’, by the way, we guess ‘Taxicorn’ sounds like something you’d eat.
The event comes to promote the new ZTE Blade V7 phone as each carriage contains one of these new phones and you’re encouraged to use it to snap some pics as you pass your royal subjects.
Speaking to Metro, Michelle Clark from Shoreditch said: “I usually get the tube to work but this morning I hopped on a unicorn parked outside my usual tube station, Bank – it was definitely an experience I won’t forget in a hurry, even if I did get a few strange looks from passers-by!”
You can catch a Unicab tomorrow between 7am – 11am outside Monument, Southwark and Canary Wharf DLR station but we imagine it’ll be a matter of right-place, right-time if you want the chance to ride with some unicorns.
