Buddy on Demand
Blow-up man to give female drivers more confidence
LONDON: He fits in a car's glove box, appears at a flick of a switch and when a woman has finished using him, she can just pull the plug and he deflates.
He's the Buddy on Demand, a blow-up man launched this week with the aim of making solo female motorists feel less nervous about driving at night.
According to research by the inflatable friend's creator, Sheilas' Wheels, 82 per cent of women feel safer with someone sitting in the car beside them and nearly half don't like driving alone in the dark.
"We're not saying that an inflatable man is the only answer but we do hope it will give women extra confidence and make journeys in the dark less fearful," said Jacky Brown, the spokeswoman for Sheilas' Wheels. Link
You will NEVER guess what business Sheilas' Wheels is in.
