Ancillary to the campaign, Social Tables launches a webpage that crowdsources seating nightmares from the public

Social Tables (, the next generation diagramming and event seating technology, announced today an advertising campaign that will point out some of the worst seating decisions in history as a cautionary tale for not using the company's platform.

The campaign will bring to light the importance of picking the right seating arrangements by conjuring up thoughts of what would happen (or has happened) when the wrong people are placed next to each other at an event. Such amateurish decisions can be very disruptive and problematic to not only the pair but also to the entire party. The campaign highlights how’s technology can make something as difficult as seating be frictionless.

The nightmare pairs that will appear in the new campaign include the following pop culture stars:

Who Sat Kim Next to Kris?
Who Sat Justin Next to Selena?
Who Sat Madonna Next to Elton?

And some fictional characters as well:

Who Sat Jerry Next to Newman?
Who Sat Bart Next to Sideshow Bob?
Who Sat Stewie Next to Lois?

And for the more intellectual:

Who Sat Mr. Hatfield Next to Mr. McCoy?
Who Sat Stalin Next to Trotzky?
Who Sat Hamilton Next to Burr?
