The “will deliver your groceries in 10 minutes” brand has launched a dating service on its app and says it will deliver to you a date in 10 minutes. The false hope this gives to single folks is disastrous. Also, the name of this service is ‘winkit’. For those who didn’t understand, Zepto’s rival is Blinkit.

Man Matters asking the question that matters
The question is “Does bigger size make you feel better?”, the answer they say towards the end is no, but uploading the video on April Fool’s Day sends across the opposite message, doesn’t it?
