Dax and Kristen’s Recliner Fight Club shows the Dad Chair struggle is real

dax and kristen

Recliner Fight Club has slightly different rules to regular Fight Club. For one, you DO talk about Recliner Fight Club. Also, you talk about it with your 2.9+ million Instagram followers. Glad we’ve got that straight.

Game on

You may already know how deep our love runs for Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell, but it received a further boost when the couple took to Instagram to duke out their recliner war.

It seems a Lazyboy recliner – aka Dad Chair – has made its way into the Shepard-Bell house recently and it’s sparked the kind of turf war you usually need to apply face paint for.

To be honest, we are not sure how said Dad Chair even got in the front door, but suffice to say it’s IN NOW and configurations and reactions are happening, as we speak.


Shepard v Bell

Let us explain the players and field as they currently appear.

Player One: Dax Shepard
Actor and dad-of two
Husband of Kristen Bell

Dax sees the beauty in his Lazyboy recliner, and feels that prime position in the living room is advisable and best.

“My wife, in an attempt to discredit my character, will be posting a similar picture, but with the expressed intention of attacking my sense of style in home furnishings. The proof of this Lazyboy’s aesthetic appeal is written all over my face. #getcomfy #functionbeforefashion,” Dax posted.


Player Two: Kristen Bell
Actor and mum-of two
Wife of Dax Shepard

Kristen does not see the beauty in any Lazyboy and thinks her own (grown-up) boy may need medical attention.

“Dax Shepard has sincerely suggested the new home for the lazy boy from his office be in the center of my living room. He made an adorable argument about how epic his TV viewing experience will be if I let him keep it there. The man has lost his mind.” Kristen says.

Turf war

This exquisitely entertaining turf war mirrors struggles playing out in homes across the country/globe. Misguided husbands, wives, partners and roomies are battling each other for the right to put their ugly stuff wherever the heck they like… Sometimes even where other people can see it. Shudder.

Bookies are tipping heavily in Kristen’s direction when it comes to best odds, mostly because women are the supreme arbiters of good taste. *whistles*

Tune in to Instagram some time soon for the final, edge-of-your-Lazyboy-seat result.
