Watch Videogame Pick Up Lines Brutally Murder Romance

I couldnt stop laughing, some of those were so cheesy.

What the hell? I've been absent mindedly checking the Escapist once a week for a while now but this prompted me to dig up my old account.

These guys are great guys. This video is not fake. The fact that Nex is bashing these guys is something I find incredibely STUPID.

They made their channel to show guys who are shy, socially awkward and reclusive that connecting with the other sex isn't hard. They're masters of picking up girls, as you will see if you watch their other videos or visit their site (www.simplepickup.com).

They all had horrible youths with bullying and namecalling and started out as nerds. They taught themselves to talk and pick up girls, having the steel balls to crawl out of reclusion.

I admire these guys and seeing you shamelessly talk them down without knowing what you're talking about is honestly making me a bit mad.

Check out their channel, watch their videos about them explaining themselves, THEN you're allowed to call them "terribly creepy" or to claim they have a "genetic defect" (in a bad attempt at snark humor, if you want).

DVS BSTrD:
If you try these lines on your girlfriend, she'll become your Ex-box.

Susan Arendt:

Kyle 2175:

You do realise that they're joking, right?

Anyway, this is pretty silly. I can't say I really care about it one way or the other, but it was certainly cringe worthy.

Nex was joking, but I'm gonna say we should follow through on his suggestion. Because...dear lord, this just shouldn't happen again. Ever. *shudder*

The "Pac-man" IS still a better nickname than "The Situation"

There is no better nickname than 'The Situation'.

Need for Weed.

Do it EA, you know you must!

That was like being smacked across the chops with a stick of solid awkward.

Although, I'm actually jealous of anyone who could drop those lines wit a straight face. Seemed to be some mild success there too...

Admittedly, some of them were just terrible... but I'm not ashamed to admit I laughed.

Thyunda:

There is no better nickname than 'The Situation'.

I have to disagree. Certain parts of my anatomy go by the name, "The Reckoning".

And the best part? Just like all good nicknames, the name gets to stick since I wasn't the one that named it that.

Oh my God, it's like watching a car crash, it's so horrible but you can't stop looking.

Contra... ception. I feel like I should have applauded that man. :D

Earnest, didn't someone teach you how to put your makeup on and do all those other things that girls do to increase their chances of reproducing? Aren't there millions of magazines that tell girls what to do to attract men and keep them? This is the male version of it, and it's finally reaching a mainstream audience.

Earnest Cavalli:
I implore you to wound them physically, preferably in a fashion that might prevent future procreation.

P.S. that's illegal. You're encouraging battery, and that right there is assault.

You guys do realize they're being bad on purpose, right?

I am not impressed with a portion of the Escapist Community, these guys are coming from the same area you are, yet you reject them for being outspoken, courageous, and pursuing what they want?

Aren't these the goals most of you have in common? I was once a shy guy, then I busted out the spontaneous that you think is inane or abhorrent, but to me, it changed my life.

Come out of your little shells, and be a bit more open-minded, the solution to your life may not lie in hitting on women with Pick-Up lines that were scripted to induce hilarity, but the main thing you can pull out of this is to socialize and not care what people think about you, make friends in the process, and not to be scared.

With a few crude remarks here and there, I can tell some people don't know what 'RAPE' is, nor to what it applies.

Look at their back-stories before you get all judgmental, you may find their tales inspiring, and bearing a few similarities to your own.

These guys have helped a lot of kids, teenagers, and young adults by inspiring them to be brave, and take the risks, showing them that if you act, you can achieve success, and if you fall it's a fun learning process not to be taken seriously.

How many people have you helped/moved? Albeit, not near as many as them.

snowplow:
Great, so now having games as a hobby gets gets you castrated. Wonderful. Truly a progressive society.

for the good of the human species I implore you to wound them physically, preferably in a fashion that might prevent future procreation.

Nice eugenics there, which is btw considered unethical. I have some master race breeding programs you might be interested in, care to join the Stormfront newsletter?

Prety much just what I was thinking too. Even if it's a joke, the best we can do is the tired old 'girl kicks boy in balls' routine played for laughs? Would it be as funny if the gender roles were reversed?

Yeah, didn't think so.

So many people here are taking this way too seriously. The video was a joke people, I mean if you look at some of their other videos it's more or less the same thing, sacrifice themselves for a cheesy laugh with girls

;-_- *facepalm*

/cringe (while watching)
/facepalm (after whatching)

As awful as that was I admit I found that pretty funny.

I thought this was hilarious.

I don't understand why people are getting upset about it all really.

Are very well put. If this site had a like button I would utilize it.

Whether or not you can pull this off is a self fulfilling prophesy, you think you can do it, and go out and try it, and you will manage it. Think this sort of thing is going to ruin your chance with a girl or that she will immediately walk away the second you say something wrong and you'll be on edge and just make her feel uncomfortable. this is exactly the reason tons of nerdy guys fail with girls

Is the San Diego Easy Pick up group recruiting by any chance?I must learn their secrets!

In all seriousness, the overall tone of this thread seems to be on the snarky side, but don't see what the deal is, these are confident guys having fun and actually being successful in getting numbers despite the rules they self imposed.

Beautiful End:
-You know what my fetish is?
-No.
-Jesus. Happy valentine's day *gives pamphlet*

Yeah, everything about this video was creepy...but that was the most disturbing for me. I don't think that girl understand what a fetish is. So like, if you say the word Jesus or start praying, she gets turned on or what? That's just creepy.

Actually she used a clever double meaning of the word fetish as being a religious idol of worship rather than a sexual obsession whether she realised it or not. I hope it was intentional.

OT: I think the worst part was that they actually got numbers. Not for lack of trying but with the necrophilia and stuff.

draythefingerless:

its fake. thats why it works.

It isn't fake. They have a whole channel of videos were they pick up different girls all the time. Stop being jelly.

But what's even more disturbing is that most of their pick-up lines and convos worked! HOW?! Have I been doing it wrong this whole time?!

They are confident. Girls love confident guys, they have even been dressed as wizards and picked up chicks like bosses. You should check their channel out, if you want to know more about their "techniques". (someone will probably report me for trying to promote their channel but whatevs)

OT: The news reporter obviously missed the point of the video. They wanted to show that they could pick up chicks even if they said wierd things. That's the point of their whole channel actually, so I think this news reporter should of gone deeper into details, you know, like news reporters should.

You missed the whole point of SP(Simple Pickup). Most of their stuff is for jokes and it goes to show their viewers that is is not about looks(Dressing up as Harry Potter/Nerd/Other stuff). You don't need fancy lines to get with a girl. You can almost say anything as long as you say it with confidence. Girl's are attracted to guys A lot different then guys are, Guys are more look based, while girls are more into Confidence, Voice Tonality, and Vocal Projection and Non-Needyness. These are women not 8 year old girls they have an adult sense of humor. They are not gonna pepper spray a guy for making a joke, or saying something a little inappropriate, worst case they just walk away. A lot of you guys show your inexperience and should probably watch some of the videos, you might not stay #Foreveralone.

Jesus Christ.

That was awesome.

Well, A fetish is...

fetˇish   [fet-ish, fee-tish]
noun
1. an object regarded with awe as being the embodiment or habitation of a potent spirit or as having magical potency.
2. any object, idea, etc., eliciting unquestioning reverence, respect, or devotion: to make a fetish of high grades.
3. Psychology . any object or nongenital part of the body that causes a habitual erotic response or fixation.

So actually, no, her use of the word fetish was accurate. Looks to be a subtle play on words to screw with him (Bar the psychological use, Either of the other two would fit with worshipping jesus, well, if she had a picture of him in her room. Which she will.) But I did enjoy her putdown. It got more lols than his line about Anal. From met at least.

As for the last thing you said?

They are showing the part of the video where they used the videogame pickup lines, the subtle ones work perfectly fine but there was probably a hell of a lot of banter prior to the use of the lines which was not shown (As it is not particularly comical).

They successfully proved that douchebags can get dumb women's numbers.....S L O W C L A P

And also that forever alone be very judgemental and jealous.

Jealous? any idiot can pick up these girls, they proved as much. I wouldn't wanna go near any girl who doesn't have the self respect to walk away when propositioned by a moron.
Judgemental? If we can't judge these numptys who can we judge?

So...

If a hot chick walked up to you and started flirting with you in an incredibly charming manner you would immediately tell them to go and fuck themselves?

Yeah, I am simply going to quote JoelChenFA

JoelChenFA:

And also that forever alone be very judgemental and jealous.

Whilst I do not agree with the lifestyles present (Mindless hookups, not really my thing), some of the dudes did not directly go for the entire "Lets fuck" thing, I mean "We should definately hang out later"... Well, I said as much to my ex-fiance when I met her. It is the kind of thing people say. Not partcularly douchey.

So, once more with feeling

JoelChenFA:

And also that forever alone be very judgemental and jealous.

the forehead. it is not big enough. must acquire more...facepalm requires it...

And reinforcing the bone might help, for I'm sure the facepalm required for this video will have a lot of force behind it XD

I will reinforce your bone and you can get as much force behind it as you like.

Sorry, thought I should keep up with the horribad puns.

I cant believe everyone here finds these guys to be douchebags. These guys are honestly heros. They dont make videos to show people that they're the biggest dickheads and have mad wheels. They make videos to help nerdy/shy/awkward guys out that cant approach girls. They have all the get her number videos, which show that you can dress like an idiot and say retarded things and still be able to get girls. Ever since I've started watching their videos ive gotten way more confidence then I have ever had when it comes to talking to girls. And I know for a fact a ton of people on this site could use that kind of confidence.

These guys were all socially awkward when they were kids. The arabic looking dude use to play WoW non-stop all day and never spoke to girls.

Starcraft one is hilarious. IMO everyone here should watch their channel.

Thats not what theyre trying to prove. And they use to be the exact same as most people on here. Spend all day gaming, and not talking to any girls. They make the videos to show that you can act absolutely retarded and get girls numbers. And they arent douches either.

Incredibly charming Manner?

If that is the impression that video left you with I feel sorry for the women you annoy by trying to include random references in your cheesy forced dialogue.
I have no problems with the ladies as I treat them as fellow human beings, not some challenge to be bested, grow up

But what kind of message is that to send out? "See dumb women will put up with you" Gamers out there shouldn't resort to women like that just because they are unsure of how to treat women, if they just tried treating all women the same as they would a man, with respect, they wouldn't need a bunch of Douches (which they clearly are) to tell them that dumb women are easy to pick up

When I lived in the US I new a guy who went around bars asking attractive looking women if 'you wanna fuck?'. 9 times out of 10 he'd get a slap but he never spent a night alone using this method.

Wow. I...uhh...I guess I've been lucky for I've never met people like that, men nor women.

I still prefer to date people who are interested in something else other than sex, thank you very much. :/

I'd really hate to date someone who wasn't interested in sex. Are you a sexless creature?

Aw man the Contra-ception line. I laughed at a lot of these.

Some of the lines worked though! Haha, very good.

I hate to say. But if you spend most your time gaming, and not talking to woman, you cant just go out and treat a woman with some respect and expect them to go for you. Im sure many people, including myself have gone for the nice guy, super passive approach for lots of girls. This has really never worked. This is how you get in the "friend zone". Unfortunately girls expect guys to approach them. In some way or another. They release videos on tips too. To show you the non-douchey way of doing things.

Heh.

Whilst I disagree with what they are doing, I do not disagree that these are charming young fellows. And you, ser, are very angry. Lashing out somewhat at members of the community who are trying to point out, in jest, that thou doth protest too much.

For one, we mostly do not see the intro. With that taken into account, it seems to jump strait into the point where they are cracking the bad pun. Your point? Bad puns are just weak jokes, everyone tells weak jokes.

What is it about them that so offends you? Their lifestyle? As I have said, upon that we are in agreement. Their demeanor? What is it about confidence that so annoys you? Perhaps you should rewatch the video. Sure, some of the puns are forced. And they do come across rather creepy at times. However, some of the jokes worked. Cheesy forced dialogue? Not quite. These men are good at what they do, which is charming people. If they were talked in a manner which seemed forced, they would not be succeeding.

And as for cheesy? People LIKE cheesy. Why do you think romantic comedies are sellouts? Why do you think valentines day fills the coffers of so many florists? People like cheesy. You ignoring this fact could explain why you are sounding like Forever Alone Guy.

And my final point?

http://xkcd.com/513/

Reminds me of how you are coming across.

As for me, personally, (You did include a personal attack so I might as well defend myself) I would never have the balls to approach someone in a manner so bold. I simply fail at introducing myself.

Look, I ended up quoting you again. Maybe it is because you are acting like a massive prick!

Why are these women stupid? Because they give the good looking funny guy their number? Why do you think you have the right to judge them for finding confidence attractive? And do you really think that is the message they are sending out.

To me it is more "Don't be afraid, you win some you lose some, keep trying and look, if you are confident you can even make a bad pun related to a game title and still get a girlfriend. So get out there and give it a try". Yes, they make a game out of it. Because it is funny, well, some of their puns were. And it was funny to see how some people reacted.

Look mate, stop being a douche yourself. Stop making snap judgments about intelligence and personality based solely upon your prejudice against confidence. You obviously have some deep seated issues about sex, confidence, women...

Wait!

Guys!

Guys!

ITS A NICE GUY!

You know what I mean.

Linking this again.

http://xkcd.com/513/

Ser, it sums you up perfectly. And to anyone else considering entering discussion with ser, give that a good look first. It will put you in his frame of mind.

Razada:
insult, insult & insult

We have been throwing some insults back and forth, lets leave it with you think these guys are showing nerdy dudes how to yield confidence and I think it's proof that no matter what you say you can pick up vapid women if you work out and YES have self confidence.

I think self confidence is an every day skill though and that your enjoyment of a specific art form and your interest in discussing it (people here) does not prove your lack of self confidence, in fact people should realise that to seem confident you should actually be comfortable with who you are and if you think you need to resort to "tricks" or "pick up lines" you are failing yourself.

For the record:
I have no problems differentiating between friendship and relationship intent, you seem keen to paint me as some misinformed loser with no hopes of getting a date, where the truth couldn't be further from the truth, I am very happy with who I am and I simply only bother with women who can engage me mentally as well physically which I don't think is too much for anyone to ask for, regardless of whether they enjoy gaming.

I wish I had that link to prove my previous point lol.
