In Uber’s ongoing campaign to be the most user-friendly car service around—child seats! Christmas trees!—it’s delivering ice cream to users across the world on Friday. Washingtonian Uber-ites can get their cold treats delivered between 11 and 5.

The promo works by choosing the one-day-only “ice cream” option in the app, which will send either an uberX driver or an actual ice cream truck your way. The treats are $5 apiece, with a minimum order of ten ice creams via truck, and four from regular vehicles.

In addition to the desserts, Uber promises a few surprise giveaways/appearances, including company swag, balloon artists, and even serenades from an a cappella quartet. See what you could be missing out on, Virginia?
