Sit Back And Relax On The Sofa – At 92mph!

Industry: Retail & eCommerce

Activity company Into the Blue is offering one of the wackiest gifts for men driving experiences in the most unusual vehicles imaginable.

United Kingdon (PRUnderground) October 18th, 2010

Leading activity voucher company Into the Blue has come over all eccentric with this superb range of ‘Wacky Races’ style driving experiences that have both passengers and onlookers raising an eyebrow in sheer disbelief.

Thanks to the over-fertile imagination of TV presenter and inventor Edd China, women seeking highly unusual gifts for men who love cars and motorsport, will be able to send them off on a high speed sofa, office desk and even a motorized bed, on a driving gift experience that’ll be like nothing they’ve ever done before.

No chance of lounging around on the ‘Casual Lofa’, as Edd calls it. It’s a typical front room scene, with a slightly kitsch sofa complete with standard light, coffee table, empty drinks cans and the remote control. A pizza pan is the steering wheel, a half-eaten chocolate bar acts as the gear lever and braking means stepping on a drinks can. Start the engine though, and this settee is capable of a Guinness World Record breaking 92mph!

The ‘Hot Desk’ office is also a record-breaker cruising at 87mph, bringing a new meaning to rushing around at work. Once strapped in to the office chair, the computer keyboard controls the steering and the mouse is the horn. Even the indicators are sunk into pot plant holders. In similar off the wall style, the ‘Street Sleeper’ offers quite possibly the comfiest way to hurtle around the public roads, snuggled down under the duvet.

These most unusual Wacky Races activity gifts all take place on the track and the public roads at the International Raceway in Northampton. Each guest will be driven as a passenger in these custom-built vehicles, which are, despite looking completely madcap, all totally roadworthy and legal.

If they prefer to be in the driving hot seat, rather than being a passenger, Into the Blue’s website offers a full spectrum of activity gifts where they are at the helm – from flying lesson and powerboat driving, to hover crafting and tank driving experiences.
