The drones were intended to hover over couples and inspire a little "mobile mistletoe mischief," according to TGI Fridays.

TGI Fridays' "mobile mistletoe drone" left a woman bloody and missing a piece of her nose last week.

Photographer Georgine Benvenuto was at a Fridays in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, when one of the operators tried to land the 10-inch aircraft on her hand, but clipped off a part of her nose instead.

"It literally chipped off a tip of my nose," Benvenuto told the Brooklyn Daily. "It took off part of my nose and cut me here, right under my chin."

The drone's operator said the mistake wouldn't have happened if the woman hadn't flinched, according to the website.

"This was an isolated event during a demonstration for the reporter and photographer only, given by the licensed operator of the drone during the last day of this particular promotion," TGIF Fridays said, in a statement. "Of course, safety is our first priority and we are sorry that this isolated incident occurred."

The drones were intended to hover over couples and inspire a little "mobile mistletoe mischief," according to promotional material for the event. "If guests show a little love under the mistletoe, Fridays might just show them a little love with some nice holiday gifts," Fridays said in a press release last week.
