Sadness: A Chair That Gives You A Birthday Hug Everytime Somebody Writes On Your Facebook Wall

July 9, 2013


It went for the tit!

Outback Steakhouse teamed up with Brazilian ad agency Lew'Lara\TBWA to develop the B-Day Chair, a chair with mechanical arms that gives you a hug every time somebody wishes you a happy birthday on your Facebook wall. You just sit down, sign into your Facebook page with the attached tablet, and let the hugs roll in. It even takes a picture of your reaction every time to flood your Facebook timeline with more crapola! True story: I worked as a busboy at Outback Steakhouse my last two years of high school. It was cool. They let me eat all the bread and drink all the soda I wanted. But one time I was taking the kitchen trash out to the dumpster and the bag ripped and a literal gallon of that sauce they dip the Bloomin' Onions in before frying them poured in between my socks and shoes. My manager wouldn't let me go home even though I was sloshing around smelling like shit for the rest of the night. Then the hostesses started calling me the Outback Outhouse and I sat and cried in the walk-in fridge for like twenty minutes. I don't ever want to talk about this again.

Hit the jump for the groping chair in action.

Thanks to lilco, who agrees that when it comes to hugs, mechanical ones are the shittiest.
