Item of the Day: TaskRabbit + Star Trek = TrekRabbits!

I love a good To Do list. In fact, writing these very sentences is something I’m going to get to mark off my To Do list shortly! But what if you could get someone else to help you with your To Do list?

The company TaskRabbit – where you can literally outsource your errands and tasks! – is partnering with GE and sending out people dressed as a character from Star Trek (like your favorite pointy-eared guy) to complete your tasks.

This partnership is being launched with the newest commercial for GE’s Brilliant Machines campaign which uses the familiar ship from Star Trek, the USS Enterprise.

So for anyone in New York or San Francisco starting October 9th through the 13th, TaskRabbits will be transformed into “TrekRabbits” to complete tasks in the shopping and delivery category.


  • October 9-13th in San Francisco and New York
  • Tasks must be posted between 10am-7pm EST
  • Tasks must be under $35 and in the shopping and delivery category

  • Users will be selected at random to receive a “TrekRabbit”

  • Current users must update their app, new users must download the app

(I’m not sure if they’re REQUIRED to say, “live long and prosper” but I’m sure you can ask ?
