Blinkit user's playful request for FIFA game with delivery agent sparks laughter; CEO responds with humour. (Blinkit )

 In a quirky turn of events, Blinkit, the quick-commerce platform, has stirred a wave of laughter across the internet. Following their partnership with Sony for the swift delivery of PlayStation 5 (PS5) Slim editions and controllers in Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, and Bengaluru within just 10 minutes, an unexpected demand from a user caught everyone's attention, including Blinkit CEO Albinder Dhindsa.

Gaming Session as a Condition for Purchase

The incident unfolded when the customer, in a light-hearted manner, approached Blinkit's customer support with a unique condition: "Bro listen... I will buy PS5 from you only on one condition." When asked to elaborate, the customer replied, “Only if the rider stays back and plays FIFA with me. I need someone to practice to beat my friends later.”
