A few days ago, a delivery agent took no-contact delivery to another level after he was seen delivering food packages on horseback amid Mumbai rains.

The food delivery bag had Swiggy’s logo monogrammed on it.

However, the man, who apparently belonged to the food delivery platform, came to the portal’s notice and now, it has sought help to ‘find the man and his grass-propelled machine’.

After the man gained hype for being sincere and his ingenious choice of vehicle, Swiggy took to Twitter to address the situation.

The platform that appreciated the unexpected publicity sought help to identify the delivery agent who rose to fame using its name.

Swiggy released a statement on Twitter with the caption "Let's address the horse in the room."

The statement read: “Who is this gallant young star? Is he riding a Toofan or a Bijli? What’s in that bag he’s got strapped to his back? Why is he so determined to cross a busy Mumbai street, on a very rainy day? Where did he park his horse when he went to deliver this order?"

It launched a “Swiggy-wide horse-hunt" and offered Rs 5,000 in Swiggy Money to anyone who could give any intel on the “accidental brand ambassador".

It also clarified in its statement that despite its efforts to opt for more eco-friendly delivery practices, it hasn’t replaced the usual vehicles with animals.

Twiterrati was quick to respond. Here are a few tweets:
