Wait, is this a joke?
The people responsible say no, but still: I have my doubts.
CLOO claims to be something like AirBnB, but for bathrooms. The idea is that in a big city, you’re more likely to be within reach of a bathroom belonging to a friend of a friend than near to a public one that’s actually worth making use of.
With the Cloo app on your phone, you search for nearby bathrooms, alert the owner that you need to pee, and hopefully they accept and invite you inside before it’s too late. Afterwards, you even get to rate the experience.
Just imagine: “Great bathroom! A++++! Good selection of magazines! Would pee again!”
The thought of strangers coming into my house and using my bathroom gives me the creeps, quite frankly. Who knows what they might even get up to? Euw. I don’t even want to go there.
Here’s the promo vid:
So far, this appears to be just an idea. Don’t bother searching the App Store for it, even if you’re using your iPhone on the toilet (DON’T DENY IT, WE ALL DO IT).
If you need a half ton of salt to take this story with, I have some stored in my bathroom. Let me know if you need it.
