Mistletoe Drone Nearly Chops Off Woman’s Nose
Apparently someone in charge at a T.G.I. Friday’s in New York thought it would be a good idea to fly a drone with mistletoe on it around the restaurant:
TGI Fridays’ “mobile mistletoe drone” left a woman bloody and missing a piece of her nose last week.
Photographer Georgine Benvenuto was at a Fridays in Sheepshead Bay, N.Y., when one of the operators tried to land the 10-inch aircraft on her head, but clipped off a part of her nose instead.
“It literally chipped off a tip of my nose,” Benvenuto told the Brooklyn Daily. “It took off part of my nose and cut me here, right under my chin.”

The drone’s operator said the mistake wouldn’t have happened if the woman hadn’t flinched, according to the website. TGI Fridays never officially acknowledged the injury.
The drones were intended to hover over couples and inspire a little “mobile mistletoe mischief,” according to promotional material for the event.
Because nothing says Christmas like a chopped off nose!
