“Straight” Bait Hits Male Strangers Up For A Date

In the age of Grindr, Jack’d, Scruff and whatever else the ‘mos are using to pick up guys these days, it’s rare to see a guy go in for the kill the old-fashioned way.

That is, if your idea of “old-fashioned” is a YouTube social experiment looking to gauge the reactions of men being asked out by a complete stranger of the same-sex variety.

YouTube channel Whatever recruited a pretty good-looking (at least from the back) guy to ask male strangers for their number in hopes of going on a date, and the reactions range from the dumbfounded to the completely homophobic to the definitely interested (we’re talking about the jacked “curious” guy at 3:00).

Take a look, and ask yourself if you’d have the stones to give this one a shot yourself. Who knows? You may run into someone like Mr. 3:00 who’s “open to new shit.”

      Please post the female version too, it’s not played for laughs therefore much more instructive. Bottom line: Lesbians today don’t know they’re born! Sooo fucking lucky. But overall this shows the younger generation are far more open to the idea or at least not offended being payed a complement in this way by someone of their own sex. The world has changed :)

      I grew where you expected a straight guy to punch you if you told him he was attractive Being gay was not for the feint of heart.

      Interesting because he actually got a few numbers! And if you actually watched through the video, he wasn’t just cute “from the back” they actually showed his face a couple of times. Too bad the Australian wasn’t gay – love those accents!

      Hilarious! And a bunch of unexpected guys were actually down, or at least flattered, which is good news I guess.

      I believe most people have bi tendencies. I asked this Q during a game of Scruples. “You are a man in a dark room when you feel someone stimulating you below the belt. You don’t know if it’s man or woman. Do you stop them to find out?” Most said NO. They all agreed that if it feels good, let them go to it. I said that if that happened to me, I would at least alert them before I reached the point of no return.

      I think the Asian dude (@ 2:53) is definitely the cutest. Tall, lean, handsome, and a sexy voice. And has a gf but is down for fun. He could have a nice career in porn!

      Guys don’t hit on other guys like that, in the middle of the street. Only prostitutes behave like this.

      I have behaved like that in the past, but always in the proper place, such as gay bars, bathhouses, dark rooms, nightclubs, etc.

      Damn I wanted to subscribe to the channel after watching the video but why are all these ‘Prank Channels’ so misogynistic!

      I know humour is about stereotypes and breaking boundaries but I just wish there was a female/gay oriented successful prank channel. Are there any?

      About the video – that African man really annoyed me! And the fat man (most likely on benefits) was just…:C

      The difference between the female video and male video just shows how much work/awareness there still needs to be done. This patriarchy :C

      The fat one probably thinks someone really wants to date him.

      No one would touch him with a ten foot pole.

      Way to generalize an entire continent. My South African friends would disagree with you.

      Honestly, that guy in the scooter should be flattered, because it’s ALL A MESS!

      I wish they hadn’t blurred out the face of the black guy who’s open to new shit, because his body was sexy. I remember this co-worker of mind once told me he was curious about guys when we were out for drinks, but then this chick turns around and starts talking to him, and he completely drops it–mid-sentence. He never brought it up again, but I always wanted to blow him after that.

      It’s interesting how some people can decline graciously or with humor, and others lose their sh!t while simultaneously appearing very ignorant.

      Just two things:

      1. Tall Asian eager guy.
      2. Blonde guy with girlfriend towards the end.

      BOOM!

      @Dakotahgeo: Not to belabor the point, which I freely admit that I have, but it’s interesting to note now you were compelled to comment on the social failure of “African natives” – yet the scooter-riding, homophobic, fat white guy’s f**king fa**ot slur was apparently socially acceptable.

      Make the pickup artist a bear, cub, or otter, and maybe I’d think about it. He looks too boyish for me, which would make me look like a str8 phobe by turning him down, but not all gays like his type.

      Cool experiment, tho, LOL.
