The Charmin Van-Go when you gotta go van

Have you ever needed to go to the bathroom in the middle of seeing the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting? Or maybe you're just out for a stroll in the East Village or hanging out at the fountain at Washington Square Park.

You can't go in the fountain--you'd be arrested.

Now Charmin, the toilet paper company has come up with an idea. They are rolling out an on-demand mobile toilet and calling it the Charmin Van-Go.

The original name The Charmin Dump Truck just didn't have the right sound to it. Neither did the other name: the Charmin Van-Gotta-Go.

The vehicle will undergo a two-day trial pilot program, but it's unclear whether this idea is going to be an ongoing program or not.

Like Uber, when you need to travel to a toilet, just call on Charmin Van-Go.

Anthony Anderson of the TV series "Blackish" has accompanied the mobile toilet on trips to Herald Square, Columbus Circle and Bryant Park (where he was able to score some good ganja). 

On Thursday, the van does Lincoln Center from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., then Rockefeller Center from 12 noon to 2 p.m. and High Line from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

To request a toilet session, go to CharminVanGo.com and follow the instructions to request the van.

"With just the touch of a few buttons, a totally private and super clean bathroom could be delivered directly to people in select New York City neighborhoods," Charmin said in a statement.

At Charmin, we aim to please . . . but remember, it's your aim that matters.
