Man Counts Down His Top 25 Plastic Patio Chairs Of All Time

April 8, 2019


This is a surprisingly fascinating video of Bryan Ropar of Bryan Ropar's Plastic Chair World briefly counting down his top 25 plastic patio chairs of all time. I learned a lot by watching it. Mostly, that there are over 25 models of patio chair. That was a real shocker. Also, that his number one chair (the Grosfillex Malaga Chair) is the chair that started it all -- the chair that launched a thousand barbecues, if you will. He says it spawned the entire industry, all other plastic chairs owe their lives to it, and he strongly believes it's the best plastic chair ever made (they got it right the very first time, that's rare). Sadly, Grosfillex intended to start remanufacturing the chair but found out they don't have the original mold anymore, so it can never return and the remaining chairs are collector's items now. Heartbreaking, really. *sits in chair, all four legs immediately snap off* Honestly I don't see what's so special about it.

Keep going for the video while I run to Home Depot to start my plastic chair collection.

Thanks to Alex, who agrees everyone should find a hobby they're as passionate about as Bryan is about his chairs.

    Did anyone notice that number 18 had number 19 written on it? Also, fuck me if that ain't the biggest empty basement I've ever seen.

    From this I mostly learned that plastic chair technology hasn't evolved much since the 1980s

    This countdown had me on the edge of my seat.

    Funniest thing ever was watching a fat chick sit on my buddy's lap and break the plastic chair!!!!!!!

    This guy has a video titled "why you can't leave kids home alone" and he demonstrates why he can't be left alone.

    I want to be as knowledgeable and excited about something as this man is about these chairs. Sighs.

    The article should be 21 reasons NOT to sit in these chairs:
    1) you weight more than 60 lbs
    2) you have been drinking
    3) source of all practical jokes
    4) they do not recline, even though you think they do
    5) not safe near water
    6) not a 2 person chair ever!
    7) first thing in the backyard to take flight
    8) the legs are made from fine European plastic...errr nope...the balsa wood equivalent in the plastic world.

    The only reasons to use them:
    1) they stack easy
