At first it was all laughs, as friends helped the mischievous young man known only as Darren into the child-sized seat in a hotel lobby in Cambridge, England. But Darren quickly realized his attempt at humor had gone awry when he failed to free himself from the tiny seat.
Darren even took his pants off in attempt to ease the process, but only added to his humiliation. The tighty-whitey wearing Englishman was now a pants-less adult in a high chair wearing only what resembled a diaper from the waist down.
"The funny thing is that once he gets his pants off, he really looks like he belongs in that high chair," friend and smart phone videographer John Henshaw told CNN.
Eventually, Henshaw and others used keys to dismantle the chair and restore Darren's dignity.
