Hook Up Truck
Grand Forks ND 2220 South Washington

Oakland, CA - A performance artist in California has created a hook up truck for intimate encounters.

But it did not get a friendly reception at its first stop.


At its first ever stop the hook up truck wasn't allowed anywhere near Oakland's first Friday's street event.

Spy Emerson/ Hook Up Truck Creator: "They said, oh no, you're the hook up truck; they said you're not allowed to come in here."

Organizers say they never received an application.

Victoria Swift/ First Fridays Organizer: "Well, we were full long before the hook up truck came. So they couldn't come because other people had already come."

The idea for this truck comes from a conversation Spy Emerson had with a friend about using mobile apps to hook up.

Emerson: "Well, wouldn't that be funny if we made a mobile room and had it for people to meet in?"

She wouldn't show us the room. She says it would spoil the secret to her business.

As a venture, the San Francisco Department of Health says they've never signed off on this same goes for the city tax collector.

Spy says right now they're not a business, because they're not charging. So for now this all plays into her other aim, social commentary about sex, art and money.

Emerson: "The root and core of this is that I'm mocking that, I'm mocking that all of these people with their money buying the thing."

So far there's quite a bit of curiosity but not much info about what's inside the hook up room these first visitors had no comment.
