Singapore resto stops 'grab-a-crab' stunt
MetadataShow full item record
A Singapore restaurant Thursday suspended a bizarre promotional stunt where customers use an arcade-style machine with a mechanical claw to catch live crabs after it sparked uproar online. A video of the pink machine, containing the creatures and emblazoned with a picture of a smiling red crab under the phrase “Come and catch me,” went viral after being posted this week. Similar to machines where people pick up soft toys, the game sees customers pay SG$5 ($3.7) to use a joystick to move the claw over the creatures before lowering it to try and grab one.
