A delivery driver has been branded the “cheeriest” in the UK after being caught singing and dancing on camera – and it’s not the first time he’s been spotted doing it.
Gemma McPherson, from London, had been waiting for a parcel containing a pair of trainers to arrive when her doorbell camera captured a DPD driver approaching her home as he drummed on the box, danced and sang an impromptu song about Christmas while waiting for an answer at the door.
He had no idea he had been filmed on the doorbell camera and Gemma shared the heartwarming clip on Facebook with the message: “Our really happy, festive DPD driver this morning made my day. Let’s make this viral, can everyone share it please. His name is Arnaud.”
After the post was shared to a local Facebook group, others came forward to say they had a similar experience with the same driver, as one commented to say: “He delivered to me yesterday as well and was so jolly bless him.”
A second wrote: “He delivered to our road last week and was doing the same.”
Another added: “I saw him the same day. He was singing Christmas songs on my road and saying ‘Merry Christmas’ to anyone that walked past. It was so cute.”
Gemma added an update to say she had later seen Arnaud again and had told him about his online popularity.
She wrote: “I saw him around 3pm today and I told him he has gone viral. I also mentioned that I had called DPD and nominated him for an award and he was so overwhelmed and said thank you to everybody….. bless him x.”
Others said they hoped DPD would recognise his efforts to do the job with a smile, as one person suggested: “He should be EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH.”
Another said: “I love this! We need more of this!”
