Virtual Gary Lineker Hands Out Free Bags Of Crisps In World’s First Tweet-Activated Vending Machines

Gary Lineker seems to be everywhere at the moment. When the former England striker is not fronting every single sports-based TV programme on the BBC or appearing in Walker’s commercials, he’s giving out packets of free crisps at bus stops. Virtually at least.

That’s right! Two bus shelters in London’s Oxford Street and one in Clapham Junction were transformed into the world’s first-ever interactive Twitter-activated vending machines, featuring the the jug-eared ex-footballer inside (not literally, of course).

By tweeting @Walkers_busstop, along with a code provided to them after they arrive, commuters were given a free packet of crisps by a virtual Gary. 

Fancy a packet yourself? Well, you have until tomorrow to grab your own free bag from one of the three locations.

Flavours are all finalists in Walker’s Do Us A Flavour campaign, including Ranch Raccoon, Cheesy Beans on Toast and Chip Shop Chicken Curry.

The winning flavour will be announced on October 17, so if you really want Walker’s to start making Hot Dog and Tomato Ketchup crisps or fancy a bag of Sizzling Steak Fajita crisps, you can vote for your favourite here.
