Attendees at the Glastonbury Festival this week were shocked to see a man flying through the air using a jetpack land on the grounds of the legendary music gathering.
Once they found out the reason why the man was using a jetpack to get to the music festival they were even more surprised.
He was delivering some pizza to a group of festival-goers.
As part of the unique stunt, the delivery “driver” was filmed picking boxes of pizza from a local Domino’s. He then takes off from the store’s parking lot, zooms across the countryside before landing amidst rows of tents, delivering the food, then taking off again.

“Seeing a jet suit thing fly over Glasto was wild,” Natalie Dixon, who was en route to the festival, said to the Mirror.
“I’ve never seen a jet suit, let alone one delivering pizzas. I can’t wait to see one land on my doorstep in the future.”
Is this the future of pizza delivery? Probably not, but wouldn’t it be cool if it was.

“When we realized pitching up to serve slices inside the festival was impossible, we took inspiration from this year’s headliner to launch our own rapid delivery trial – it was a bit of a no brainer,” said Sam Wilson from Domino’s, referring to the “Rocket Man” Elton John.
“Every year we see huge numbers of random requests from festival goers trying to sneak pizza into the party.
“So, this year we wanted to take a giant step towards and trial our very own rocket man service to help hungry campers get a slice of sky-high satisfaction in the future.”
How much do you tip a guy delivering pizzas to you using a jetpack? 20 percent? 30?
“Keeping pizza piping hot using the jet suit is definitely an unusual utilization of our tech and pizza isn’t in our normal flight plan,” said a spokesperson from Gravity Industries, who created the custom-made jetpack suit.
“But being able to exceed the average delivery time by flying through the Somerset fields and feed campers with the pizza delivery experts certainly shows the future of fast delivery service.”
