Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and there’s no one you have to impress more than your loved one’s co-workers. Luckily, Cambridge-based 3D greeting card company Lovepop is providing something a bit cooler than the standard dozen roses delivered straight to the cubicle. On Friday, February 12 (we don’t have to remind you that Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year), they are delivering the one and only Keytar Bear.
Because here in Boston, nothing says love more than a man in a bear suit playing Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” on a Keytar. That’s just how we roll.
“You tell us who you’d love to shower with Valentine’s Day ridiculousness and we’ll handle the rest,” writes Lovepop. “Nominate the person in your life who earned a special Lovepop this year. If he or she is in the downtown Boston area, there’s a pretty good chance we’ll show up with a spectacle in tow. Who wouldn’t love to be serenaded by the smooth sounds of Boston’s finest while being gifted with the coolest paper art you’ve ever seen?”
As BostInno notes, Lovepop, which in December scored a $300,000 deal on ABC’s Shark Tank, is only looking to make about 20 visits next Friday during normal business hours. So there’s a nomination process, and you can put in a bid here.
