Car manufacturer Mercedes Benz unveiled a chocolate-themed version of its Smart car in Tokyo just in time for Valentine’s Day.
The Telegraph reports: “Designed by a Japanese accessories company, Q-Pot, the car is brown and patterned like a bar of chocolate.”
It is a tradition in Japan for the women to give gifts of chocolate to husbands, boyfriends and male family members on Valentines Day. Even bosses and male colleagues are included in the gift giving.
Newsnet5 reports: “Q-Pot's Tadaaki Wakamatsu, the designer of the limited-edition car, and a chocolate lover himself, designed this version of the Smart car for the Valentine season." I designed this car hoping that not only men but also women would drive this car and spend sweet time at the wheel," he told AP Television.”
In return for the gift giving to males on Valentine’s Day the female givers will be rewarded on the so called “White Day” in March when men then reverse the pattern and give to their female associates.
