Wouldn't it be a wonderful dream come true to have two Maharaja manservants or maids being delivered to any location you are at to cool you down with a handheld fan of your choice.....
Just imagine yourself a Maharaja or a Maharani for a day, and let these man servants or maids help you cool down...
With the current heatwave taking a toll on Malaysians and no end in near sight, Groupon Malaysia took matters into their own hands by offering its customers a free Maharaja anti-heatwave treatment.
The treatment entitled:
- Two Maharaja manservants or maids being delivered to any location to cool down customers with a handheld fan of their choice
- Customers were able choose from a Tropical Palm, Bamboo, Peacock Feather, Marabou Feather, Maharaja Pankhi, or 15th Century Maharaja fan
- The first 500 customers to book were to receive the ‘Ultimate Maharaja’ treatment including a Maharaja turban, complimentary deodorant application, (or reapplication), perfume or cologne top up, and a 15-minute revitalizing shoulder massage
- The special RM0 deal was valid from 00:01AM April 1 2016 until the end of the day
The dream treatment included two ‘trained’ and ‘experienced’ Maharaja manservants or maids servicing the customer to detect their current body temperature and apply the right amount of airflow to their face, body, and feet, allowing them to reach a sweat-free and relaxed physical state within just 20 minutes.
Sadly for those who expected it, it was a part of Groupon Malaysia annual April Fools’ prank, because upon clicking the ‘Book Now’ button, customers were directed to a micro site that said “Happy April Fools' Day! We gotcha!” and was instead given a promo code that entitled them to a 23% discount on their next Groupon purchase. An added 2% discount was given out to those using their mobile app. So it wasn't that bad was it.... hehehe
"April Fools’ is an exciting day on the Groupon calendar and one we look forward to each year! It's the perfect opportunity to engage with our customers and to put a smile on their faces,” said Groupon Malaysia's Communications Lead.
