Drones are the thing now. People want one for their backyard so they can spy on their neighbors. Filmmakers want them for their movies. Amazon wants them for deliveries. Skynet will take over humanity using cyborgs and drones.
Not to be left behind, TGI Fridays is using drones in its restaurants, sending mistletoe to people’s tables so they can kiss as part of its #Togethermas campaign. The drones, which started in the UK, landed at a restaurant in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn on December 4 and a local reporter went to the restaurant to check it out. This is basically why TGI Friday has these flying contraptions: introduce something kind of fun, kind of weird, very over-the-top and watch it get some media attention.
But the drone in Brooklyn promptly went out of control and cut a photographer’s face. Even better, the TGI Friday worker behind the controls blamed a reporter for causing the accident.
