The Long Good Friday: Hot Octopuss delivers alternative to eggs

Posted: March 30, 2016

If it hadn’t been staged on Good Friday, the latest cunning stunt from Hot Octopuss would have sounded suspiciously like a premature April Fool. The company promoted its Pulse II Duo to New Yorkers as an alternative to an Easter egg, reasoning that while chocolate has long been hailed as an aphrodisiac, research reveals it doesn’t actually contain enough of the good stuff to get you going.

Residents of Manhattan could order a Pulse II Duo disguised as an Easter egg and get it delivered to their door – or their loved one’s door – by the Hot Octopuss Easter Bunnies within a one hour time frame.

Adam Lewis, Hot Octopuss co-founder and designer of Pulse, said: “Forget these fake aphrodisiacs and get involved in the real deal. The new bunnies on the block are laden with sweet treats and on a mission to add a spring and a hop into the sex lives of Americans.”

This latest initiative follows January’s media meltdown when Hot Octopuss announced it had installed a ‘GuyFi’ male stress relief booth in Manhattan. Hot Octopuss states that it is on a mission to reduce the stigma around male and couple’s sex toys, as well as advocate the health benefits of masturbation – and, it must be said, these stunts certainly get people talking.
