THIS RESTAURANT IN CHINA REWARDS THE SKINNY WITH A FREE MEAL
A restaurant in China’s eastern Shandong province is rewarding thin patrons with a free meal. It’s kinda like the opposite of fat shaming. The challenge involves fitting through an increasingly narrow set of metal bars. There are five tiers to what’s been dubbed “the metal gate challenge.”
The tightest tier is a mere 15 centimeters wide.
If a customer makes it through they’re rewarded with a free beer and a free meal.
The restaurant’s owner claims that typically one person makes it through per day and that person has always been female. The next tier is 18 centimeters and comes with a prize of 5 beers for the table.
So far around 20 customers have managed to make it. After that is a 25 centimeter gap which means one free beer for the customer.
The fourth tier is 30 centimeters wide and offers no reward, only the sarcastic message “Your figure is just average – you shouldn’t ask for more.”
Finally, the widest tier about half of the size of a normal doorway offer more punishment than reward. That tier is coupled with a question “Are you sure you should be drinking beer?”
Zhao Lang, the restaurant’s owner says the challenge came about when environmental factors forces the restaurant to close their door part way which resulted in some squeezing on a few customer’s part.
In April there are always [pollinated flowers] in the air so we usually keep only half of the doorframe open. Some fat guys had to really try to get through. That’s when we thought it would be fun to create a game that measures body sizes and combine some discounts and special offers with it. And it was so interesting, people started sharing it on social media right away.
Lang hopes the challenge is a fun way to remind people to be mindful of their diet. People are always thinking about a meal when they enter a restaurant. If they fail to squeeze through the frame they might think maybe we are overweight, maybe we should control the amount of food we order.
People care more and more about their shape these days. Do you think this an encouraging weight loss strategy or a fat shaming marketing gimmick?
