Pub Owner Installs Faraday Cage Inside the Walls because Social Media is Ruining Pubs

Bit like a tin foil hat for an entire building? Does anyone agree with him if he has to nuke everyone's phones instead of them just turning them off by choice? Will people get more drunk out of bore…

I can't have shielded speakers, but he can have a building size faraday cage?

I'm not sure what I make of it, but it's amusing me.

I mostly couldn't care less about people being hooked to their phones in pubs but I do really miss a good honest pub quiz.

A publicity stunt. Why would a landlord care about social interaction as long as the punters are filling his till?

I suppose that's one legitimate use for it *nods* It would be the place to go for cheating free quizzes.

Wasn't sure if it was publicity or if he has genuinely lost the plot. I was picturing a landlord crossed with Victor Meldrew, who had hulk like rage moments where he got super human strength to smash iphones.

Is it just me or do the eyes look too old for Deeky? I'm sure his have less baggage and more sparkle. It's like the hair is younger (if real) and the face is older.

You don't think Deeky has become a time traveler, do you? oO Might explain the faraday cage, could be stopping him being sucked into another time.

Pubs were almost killed off after smoking ban- mot pubs are not the local community centre anymore - like they used to be.

And then add to the above more than 50% can't turn their tablet or mobiles off

Yes good on ya pub owner I hop it works for you and proves positive towards profit and re-building the community.
But knowing the likes of those that do frequent with their tablets/mobiles continually on I think you'll lose that custom.

Perhaps it's the expression of the seal that's the important thing?

I think most Hollywood talent scouts would agree with you due to its lack of manual dexterity hampering its ability to give handjobs :D

Couldn't watch all of part one though. Bit cringey.
