Brayan Villarreal was sitting at a Red Lobster restaurant when he was texted by his mother that there was danger at his home in Venezuela.
Villarreal was stunned to find out that his father, mother, and 14-year-old brother had been robbed at gunpoint in their own home and held captive last Friday. None of them were harmed, but his father and brother were tied up.
Villarreal was so stunned that he finished his meal before reality set in.
I know I'M not finishing my meal at RED LOBSTER after I get a text that says my parents and teenage brother have been robbed at gunpoint. I'm not finishing my meal at Morton's if that's the kind of news I get. (Okay, I might; Morton's is delicious.) Red Lobster should jump all over this advertising opportunity, though: our food is so good, your family could be kidnapped in the middle of your meal and you'll still want to finish it.
But really, this story is just an excuse for me to post the video below.
