TGI Fridays launched the drone after research revealed that 47 per cent of Britons have never enjoyed a kiss under the mistletoe. The study also found that just 27 percent of people were planning to lock lips with someone under the festive plant this year – something the restaurant hopes to change. Everyone loves a good Christmas party, but we all know things can be a bit awkward until someone breaks the ice,’ said TGI Fridays marketing manager Rachel Waller of the drone’s uses.
‘We wanted to see how we could make Christmas get-together in our restaurants even more entertaining.
‘We offered 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.
‘Maybe we’ll have had our first mistletoe drone wedding by this time next year.’
The survey, which was conducted by TGI Fridays and spoke to more than 2000 people, also looked which professions are most likely to get involved in a romantic incident at a Christmas party.
63 per cent of those working in hospitality said they would kiss a colleague, with the property industry coming a close second at 62 percent and those in the media not far behind at 56 per cent.
But if you don’t fancy kissing Pete from accounts this year you’re not alone. The research also unearthed the male celebrities we’d most like to kiss this Christmas.
Hollywood superstar George Clooney, 53, former footballer David Beckham, 39, and actor Brad Pitt, 50, all came up trumps.
Meanwhile, model Kelly Brook, 34, actress Scarlett Johansson, 29, and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, 31, are the celebrities men want to kiss the most.
