Carvana Built Five Storey Coin Operated Vending Machine!
We all know they like to do things big in America, but this really takes it to a whole new level – a coin operated vending machine exists in Nashville, Tennessee, that is five storeys tall and it vends cars.
The gigantic vending machine is part of an advertising gimmick for Carvana, an online retailer that sells used cars, who have made a 30 second movie for it (which you can watch at the bottom of this page) featuring the building-sized vending machine.
Carvana’s idea was to create more of an experience for customers when they pick up their machine. The process is as follows: customer buys car online, drives to the building/vending machine, get their oversized coin which they put in the coin slot, then watch their car be automatically dispensed from the building! According to the video, no, shaking it will not get you a free car.
Carvana is exploring the potential behind the idea and is discussing expanding this concept into other markets; what these markets are remains unknown at this point.
