The craze for the TV series is growing as the episodes are released. And it appears that the Indian food delivery app Swiggy is very impressed by the dragons.

Foodies who ordered from Swiggy were surprised to notice a change while waiting for their delivery. It appeared to be a subtle advertisement for the American fantasy drama television series House of the Dragon. Customers tracking their food order noticed that the cliche bikes had been replaced with a dragon icon to indicate the delivery partner’s movement. In addition, the destination was adorned with a Targayrean sigil.

People couldn’t help but share screenshots of the tracking screen on social media. Yes, the dragon delivering them delicious food.

The company has partnered with Disney+ Hotstar to include the House of the Dragon theme into their app. Swiggy appears to be up to date on the current fashion trends. You’re probably wondering how this new function will operate. Don’t worry, you won’t have to do anything. When you place your food order on the Swiggy app, you will not see the regular delivery partner animation.

As soon as the partner for your order is assigned, you can see that he is riding a dragon to deliver your food. The House of the Targaryen has also been added to your order location. “Fire will reign, hunger will not. Our Dragon rider is on the way!” this is how Swiggy is greeting its users.
