Phuket man wearing Spiderman costume brings delight selling ice-cream

Phuket –

A Phuket man wearing a Spiderman costume selling ice cream around the town has been bringing delight to tourists and local residents alike!

The Phuket Express met with Mr. Witoon, 35. He has been selling ice-cream in a Spiderman costume on Soi Hon Sai Thong, Rassada sub-district, Mueang Phuket district.

Mr. Witoon told the Phuket Express, “I used to be a singer at restaurants and entertainment venues. After the Covid -19 crisis I was unemployed. I decided to do something else to earn money. I chose to sell ice-cream for the last two years but with a twist. I wear Super Hero costumes every day and change them often. Sometimes I wear ‘the Hulk’, and ‘the Flash’. This is another way of marketing as many children who love ice-cream also love Super Heroes. Sometimes I stop my ice-cream motorbike in front of schools in Wichit.”

Reporters asked Witoon how hot he was in these Super Hero costumes and he told The Phuket Express, “Of course it is totally HOT!!! But, I wear costumes almost every day. I got used to it. I have to do this as there are many people selling ice-cream too. I have to be different.”
