Editor's Pick

Red Robin has a bizarre approach to encouraging you to cut carbs for the New Year -- by suggesting that you start with your man bun.

In a funny new social video from KBS+, the restaurant chain has put that oh-so-2016 male 'do on the chopping block, a cheeky metaphor promoting its new "Wedgie Style" menu offering allowing diners to switch the buns on their burgers with lettuce wraps.

The film is also featured on a website, where visitors can see more healthy hacks from the restaurant.
