Fact Check: The Video Of The Flying Delivery Boy In Saudi Is Fake
In the past few days, a video supposedly from Riyadh that shows a man delivering food with a jetpack on his back has gone viral. It shows him flying from one building to the next.
So many accounts published it as if it were an actual fact!

But with such zoom stabilization and the man literally flying with his legs right underneath the jetpack it definitely called for skepticism.
Wait till you see this video which shows a delivery boy delivering a food right to someone’s doorstep.
The video of flying delivery man in Saudi Arabia is actually an ad by food delivery service Hunger Station. pic.twitter.com/8P7WU46hL4

After going through the numerous videos, we finally found out that it was actually an ad campaign by Saudi based food delivery app Hunger Station.
So sorry to break it to you but flying delivery isn’t going to happen anytime soon, but one thing is for sure, Hunger Station has clearly aced the ad game with this.
