There is no proof that Phil bought the chair. I am however on team "Phil Bought the Chair" based on several conclusions I made given what Phil said and investigation of the company.He lied and bought a chair and said he got it for free from some bullshit brand new company who closed days later. He had an “affiliate” link since he bought a chair that others could use so he wold get like 5% commision. Standard practices for a lot of companies.
The most damning evidence consisted of the company being one guy who did get rich quick schemes, its phone number and address was the same as a television repair shop that was run out of the guys garage, the website saying if you buy a chair you get a code to get a kickback for selling chairs to others, the claim that this company sought out Phil immediately after he lost his previous chair sponsorship, the company had no branding or anything on the chair the guy basically charged a fee to order a chair and get it sent to the customer, and the company disappearing overnight.
I know we've been over chairgate before, I just don't want Synth to start claiming "fake news".
