A viral photo of a man on all fours in a subway station with a woman using his back as a chair is being circulated online.
The post which was posted by the Instagram account Subway Creatures was captioned with, “And they say chivalry is dead.”
The woman in the picture is a TikTok user who goes by the name @sti1es on the short-video app. In the pictures posted by SubwayCreatures on September 17, she is seen wearing a lime green halterneck top and white jeans.
TikToker @sti1es, who appears to be the woman from the viral photo, posted a video on Saturday of her human seat in real-time. “[T]his summer’s must-have accessory is boy chair,” she captions. Holding her camera above herself, @sti1es playfully shows various angles of her seated atop a man on his hands and knees.
