Here Is Why You Should Make Out in TGI Friday’s This Christmas

TGIF-Drone-US

Last month, we reported that a TGI Friday’s in the UK had a flying drone that hovered over customers with a piece of mistletoe. If the couple gets picked, they have to kiss in front of the entire restaurant.

Looks like the Friday-lovin’ restaurant chain is bringing this tradition to the US. Appearing in select restaurant locations throughout the country, TGI Friday’s will start piloting drones for the Christmas season.

Like their UK counterparts, the drones will hover over couples and put them on blast for all the restaurant’s patrons. Interestingly, whether they kiss or not is up to them. However, TGI Friday’s is rewarding those willing to publicly display their affection with a special gift card.

Not quite sure yet on TGI Friday’s system for determining who qualifies as a couple. Either the pilot will just pick two people at random or spend a decent amount of time watching people eat before sending the drone flying toward them.

TGI Friday’s Has a Drone with Mistletoe Attached, Promotes Awkward Kissing

TGIFridays-Drone

Drones are everywhere these days. If they’re not used for work, or creativity, it’s definitely for shenanigans. Such is the case with TGI Friday’s. The restaurant chain is capitalizing on the drone craze, at least in the United Kingdom, by using the devices to interact with customers dining in.

In an effort to promote holiday togetherness, a Manchester TGI Friday’s is taking part in a Christmas-inspired project. A low-hanging piece of mistletoe will be attached to the drone and flown across the restaurant. It will hover over diners, putting them on blast and awkwardly suggesting a kiss. All of which will be recorded on a kiss cam.

We imagine whoever is piloting the drones will have loads of fun with this.
