Lickable wallpaper brings Willy Wonka to life
The Daily Mail reports that the communications firm, Engine, in Central London, food technicians and artists took four weeks to cover the walls with delicious stickers. "We are all about bringing a bit more fun to life and this was the perfect way to get a little joy straight to stressed out office workers," Philipa Tilley, the Senior Brand Manager from Jaffa Cakes told The Drum. They took their inspiration from the glass elevator from "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."
And now the fly in the honey pot. Germs! Bacteria! Don't lick the wall, no matter how yummy! That's like french kissing everyone in your office. Just eat a real orange-flavored, chocolate-covered Jaffa Cake! They have an answer for this too. "Once a Jaffa Cake flavored spot is licked the spot is removed by a lift attendant who is in the lift the whole time staff have access," said the Jaffa Cakes spokesman. "His job is to stop any licking crossover, and potential germ spreading."
Are there lick monitors? Maybe we should work on that gum Violet was chewing instead.
