The Corona Christmas Lorry has been hijacked by Mexican bandits in Merthyr Tydfil.
The festive lorry, which is travelling the length and breadth of Wales giving out free cherryade was stopped as it left Merthyr last night. It is believed that the bandits were demanding free American Soda and some bottles of Limeade.
Corona boss Garry Popman told WalesOnCraic:
“They just came out of nowhere. They rode their horses out into the rode and because I’m an animal lover, I stopped the lorry because I wanted to smooth them – the horses that is, not the bandits. The bandits then started shooting their guns and and singing some sort of Mariachi before riding up to us and asking us for free pop.”
The hijack follows are recent attack on a Valley Lines train between Cardiff and Pontypridd which left a staff member with a grazed knee.
“I don’t know why they have to be so nasty about it.” said Popman. “Our aim is to bring Christmas cheer to all and then these guys turn up and it all goes to shit. Why can’t they pay for it like other people? We do a great delivery service and you even get money back on your old bottles.”
