Most dudes looking for a hookup on Tinder get pretty psyched if they land a few matches every evening after some very laborious right swiping. It’s not easy out there in the Tinder jungle. The competition is getting stiffer by the day as men come up with more and more ingenious ways to seduce the 21st century woman. If you want to match with the girl of your dreams, you need to think out of the box — or, in the case of writer Alex Scola, out of the bowl.
Scola set up a Tinder account with one very clear goal: to impersonate a toilet. Yes, like the toilet in your bathroom that you take a shit in right on schedule every morning.
A social experiment of sorts, “Oliet” was the name given to the account, and it turned out to be an entertaining endeavor all around. You see, Oliet had matches rolling in almost immediately; he landed more than 100 within the first 24 hours. Within a week, he had amassed more than 200. That has to be a record for a guy with a face that looks like shit all the time.
The pickings seemed pretty good, too. Like, almost on par with TFM’s ridiculous Tinder pickup line series.
Man, some guys have all the luck.
Do you guys see a trend here? It’s like women these days are actually intrigued with the shit we’d usually assume they’d find disgusting. It’s a wild, wild world out there. I mean, if you had told me yesterday that using a picture of a toilet on Tinder would get someone matches like this, I would have laughed in your face.
Not anymore, though. Thanks to Scola’s experiment, it makes sense more than ever, and there’s a big picture takeaway from it all.
Gentleman, Tinder is an ever-changing edifice, and it’s our reproductive duty to evolve and adapt to the nature of the game. Sometimes you have to get out of your comfort zone, you know? So what if you’re going through a Tinder drought? Fucking go rogue and throw up a picture of an arbitrary inanimate object and absolutely own it in the wittiest way possible. If Oliet is any indication, the matches will come swirling in..
