Restaurant launches 'mistletoe drones' to get couples to kiss

One restaurant chain is really encouraging some Christmas cheer this season.

TGI Friday's has launched what it describes as the UK's first "mistletoe drone", to encourage diners to pucker up and get into the festive spirit.

The drones hover above couples, carrying a sprig of mistletoe and a "kiss cam" so fellow guests can watch responses.

The drones have been trialled in Manchester and will be introduced at other sites ahead of Christmas. Words: PA

Rachel Waller, marketing manager of TGI Friday's, said: "Everyone loves a good Christmas party, but we all know things can be a bit awkward until someone breaks the ice.

"We're known for legendary celebrations at Fridays, so we wanted to see how we could make Christmas get-togethers in our restaurants even more entertaining, and offer guests the encouragement they need to make their move - particularly the one half of UK adults who have never had a kiss under the mistletoe.

"Our mistletoe drones are the perfect way to do this. Not only are they great fun for the entire restaurant, but they help people get a little closer at this romantic time of the year."
