It is normal to want to impress someone on your first date, but as one fan of chicken spot Nando's Peri-Peri, Jonny Smith, would soon learn—you shouldn't try to spice things up too quickly. Things went awry when Jonny tried to impress the girl he was taking out with the strangest dating tactic ever: disguising his plain chicken as extra hot chicken. Cause nothing gets a girl going more than thinking a guy can ingest spicy foods...right? However, not everything goes according to plan.
Hi Nando's! I'm normally a big fan of your resteraunts so where better to take a potential suitor on a first date?
I picked her up, drove to my local Nando's (didn't charge her petrol money) and we got shown to our table and decided what we were having. All was going well.
I decided to go for half a chicken (plain) with chips and was even so kind as to order hers as well. Not many gentlemen like me about these days is there?
As it was a first date and i was out to impress i asked to get an extra hot flag put in my plain chicken because i can't handle anything that is the slighest bit spicy and as we all know...
Plain = Lame
Peri Peri Spice = very very nice
(Feel free to use that on your next advertising campaign.)
Anyways back to the story.... our food arrived and there sat my 'plain' chicken with my extra hot flag stuck in it staring back at me in all its impressive glory! A chicken died for this meal but my god Nando's, you gave it the portuguese funeral that it truly deserved.
Excellent service as always i may say, except for one little detail, it wasn't plain at all! It was EXTRA HOT!
Look at my eyes Nando's!
Look what you've done to me!
I couldn't even speak let alone chat the poor girl up. I doubt there'll be a second date now....
Aw, poor Jonny! That's what happens when you try to heat things up too quickly. Still, it's kind of nice that he was able to rise above all the heartache and heartburn to give Nando's a free slogan.
Nando's took to Facebook with this heartwarming and very honest response:
Cock-blocked by a chicken? That's funny. Look on the bright side! If the spicy chicken did that to your mouth, you probably don't want your date to be around when it gets to the rest of your body.
Guess you can just "cluck" this one up to experience, Jonny.
