They’ve tried ice cream, puppies and Christmas carol singers, now ridesharing app is delivering the ARIA Award-winning band Birds of Tokyo to play in Sydney offices today.
The latest stunt from Uber, which is currently battling the NSW government over its illegal private service UberX, and a relentless campaign from the taxi industry, has the Perth five-piece rock band playing one acoustic song in offices around Sydney between noon and 3pm today.
Perhaps Uber is planning to adopt the band’s anthemic smash hit ‘Plans’ as its theme song.
