Birthday Hug Chair or First Base Chair?
Birthday Hug Chair or First Base Chair?

See that picture above?  The one of the two friends in a friendly embrace?  That’s what I think of when I think Birthday Hug between friends.  Outback Steakhouse in Brazil thinks differently.

So here’s that video of the Birthday Hug Chair from the Outback Steak House in Brazil.  It’s a chair that is connected to Facebook.  On your birthday, you sit in it, log into your Facebook account and it posts on your Timeline asking for B-Day wishes.  When you get a B-Day wish, the chair hugs you.  But if you watch the video, it looks more like you’re getting felt up by a puppet than getting hugged.  I mean, I’ve had plenty of hugs in my day, and they rarely look like this.  I’m just sayin’.
