A video of a delivery man carrying a Swiggy bag recently went crazy viral because of the man’s choice of vehicle. The clip shows how the man selected a horse and rode around in a Mumbai road. Since being posted, the video has accumulated tons of comments and reactions. The online food ordering and delivery platform has now joined in too with a witty post. They also announced a reward for anyone who gives useful info about the man in the video.

“Let’s address the horse in the room,” they wrote as the caption of the post. Besides sharing the now-viral video, then also added a few lines about the incident.

“Attention netizens and foodies! It has come to our notice that a recent amateur video of an unknown person, carrying our monogrammed delivery bag while sitting quite confidently on a living white horse (not a statue), has propelled us to unexpected but not unappreciated fame,” they wrote. Then they added, “While we'd like to take some credit for the man's ingenious plan and vehicle of choice, we really can't. That's mainly because, just like most of you, we too have not yet been able to find out” along with a few questions that are making them think. There is a possibility you may have the same questions too.

In their post, Swiggy also announced a reward. “It's 5K in Swiggy Money for the first person who can give us some useful intel about our accidental brand ambassadors, so we can thank them,” they expressed.

“Come forward. Do your share as a good citizen of India. Because the nation wants to know more about the Swiggyman on the horse. And so do we!” they added and concluded their post.
