You can use a bottle of Lucozade to pay for the Tube this week
You can literally use anything to pay for the Tube now
You can pay for the Tube with anything now, can’t you? Fuck your Oyster card, mate – these days you can pay with your regular card, your phone, even your watch. What next, eh? A bottle of Lucozade?!?!!
Yes, actually: this week you can pay for the Tube with a bottle of Lucozade.
Between Tuesday 30 May and Friday 2 June, thousands of “lucky passersby” at Oxford Circus will receive a special edition bottle of Lucozade containing a chip allowing them to swipe through the gates just like they would with a contactless card or Oyster.
“We are excited for Lucozade Energy to be able to launch this new campaign on the Tube,” said Ashleigh Roberts, senior brand manager at Lucozade. “In a city that’s always on the go, we’re giving Londoners an extra opportunity to get where they need to be in a fun and unique way.”
So yeah, if you’re lucky next week, you might be able to get to work for free, and with a load more energy too. You’ll probably need it after the bank holiday.
