Come for the mozzarella sticks, go home with a bloody nose.

TGI Friday's "Mobile Misteltoe" has had its first casualty, crashing into a woman's face a chipping off a piece of her nose, according to Brooklyn Daily.

The two remote-controlled helicopters dangling sprigs of mistletoe were intended to spread holiday romance, but one of them flew out of control and clipped Courier photographer Georgine Benvenuto in the nose with one of its spinning, uncovered blades.

The drone operator was attempting to land the device on the reporter's hand, when it veered off and hit Benvenuto.


TGI Friday's says it hasn't had any other accidents in its test flights, and that it's safe because ""we do not let consumers touch it."

The drones are part of a marketing campaign by the restaurant chain in which the devices fly above customers heads while they eat, forcing them to kiss.

The bloodshed is just an added bonus… because drones will be drones!

This is what drones were really made for.

Visual effects team Corridor Digital has produced an action packed video about a bunch of Parrot drones and remote controlled cars battling "battery bandits" to save the life of their teddy bear friend.

Think "Toy Story," but with a lot more explosions and some '80s montage music.

You can watch the creators talk more about the drones use in the video and how it was made here.

As part of a recent story for "60 Minutes," filmmaker Danny Cooke shot this haunting footage of Chernobyl and the abandoned city of Prypiat in Ukraine.

The nuclear meltdown was 30 years ago, but the reactor, which was simply buried in a tomb, is still very dangerous. According to the CBS report, there is a project underway to come up with a more permanent solution, but it's three quarters of a billion dollars short of its goal.

Cooke calls it "one of the most interesting and dangerous places I've been."
