This is the Pleasure Cart. On Wednesday and Thursday, Trojan aims to use the cart to give out 10,000 vibrators across New York City. Wednesday, it was temporarily stationed in the Flatiron district, near BuzzFeed’s offices. Our own staffers on the ground said the line was 50 or 60 people deep when the stunt was broken up by police and the mayor’s office. Apparently, the Pleasure Cart didn’t have a permit. Of course, the saga also unfolded on Twitter.
