Personally, I don’t think TVs in small bars or restaurants are a particularly good idea, as regardless of what’s being shown, it’s almost impossible not to be distracted by them. But as a man who doesn’t do distractions halfheartedly, the drinker below would presumably deem such diversions a plus.
He’s thinking… “wow, a system kitchen… fancy that”.
Haha, the marvels of the modern world!
Or, he’s thinking…”How come Chelski lost another game. No matter how good Leicester is, they don’t have the right to be called the True Blue”.
With Chelsea’s current run of form, that look may well be saved for when they actually win!
True! And they’ve just lost the gave against Leicester.
I know, a staggering decline…
Love his expression! That’s a man who loves his TV! 🙂
He does indeed!
forgotten glasses or AKB48? The fish is watching him.
Yes, the goldfish were an interesting touch. In bars, anything swimming in a tank is usually part for the menu.
Another intricate and complex scene captured at the perfect moment. The subject reminds me a little of Brian Glover.
When I was much younger my regular bar was an underground (literally) biker bar where the local angel gang held forth. The bar was the first in my town to have a video game (space invaders of course) and also the first to have a video jukebox with the screen high up at one end of the single long box shaped room. The effect of the screen was to polarize the whole clientel whenever a song was playing. Everyone faced the same direction and conversation stopped. When I asked the landlord why he went for it he said the bright images and flashing lights distracted the neanderthals from their usual business of breaking things and each other. One downside was that the rival angel gang, who would raid the pub every few months for a fight, would come down the entrance opposite the screen and so get a head start on the ensuing altercation. Happy days 🙂
Anyway, this guy certainly seems distracted from whetever else he may have had in mind.
Thanks. And yes, he does look rather like a Japanese Brian Glover, doesn’t he?
That sounded like a very interesting place to drink. No doubt some very interesting regulars too. Fascinating to hear about the TV having the same effect, but even more fascinating was the landlord’s reasoning behind it!
