I’m not gonna lie….that last guy caught my attention the most
Fred is lit
Fred does not look like your typical Minnesota Vikings fan.
Fred is the only guy here who probably cleaned up from his video.
Frederick the Great
Great ... *rolls eyes* .... Fred
I need to see more of Fred.
I'm certain this was Fred's entire video.
The Viking is ALL IN.
If he's in, I'm in.
well if *he's* in, I'm out
Well if he's out, I'm in.
Storming the capital since 1980
This is how my parents met no bullshit lmao
Was your dad the Viking
I wish lol
He was Big Phil wasn't he? I knew it, the ladies couldn't resist.
Na he’s not on any of these videos but did one in the 80s which resulted in him getting married to my mother..actually a really good looking dude idk why he even tried doing this he never had problem getting women even to this day(parents have been divorced 20 years)
Probably did it for fun.
Imma ask him tomorrow and I’ll report back lol
ITS BEEN SIX HOURS HOW LONG DOES THIS MAN SLEEP?
I just asked him he literally said “ because I felt like it” lmao
No. Wake him now. I gotta know.
I did he said because he “felt like it”
I wish he was Fred the Viking! But sadly not
I see online dating has not changed in 40 years.
I would a 1000% rather have these video clips than flat pictures on tinder or bumble.
harder to fake a video than to cap the best lighting, angle and possibly edit pictures together
Yes, and you get a feel for someone's vibe this way. Even 10 seconds of video of you talking will give me so much more info than any profile ever.
agreed. I want to know right off the bat if someone sounds like Kermit or not
There was a dating app I used years ago that let its users chat via video clips. You could choose to blur or unblur yourself too. I’m guessing it failed because I have never been able to find it again.
Apparently, most of the biggest dating apps allow video calls or voice clips in-app now.
Seriously! I was thinking that throughout the whole thing. Yup. All the guys on the apps are just like this. (Chucks phone out the window).
I hope these people found love
Fred did. I love Fred.
Fred, as John Oliver might say, ffffuuuuucks.
Is he the “refined valley dude?”
Swiping left or right took A LOT of effort back then. I remember a friend back then had to do one of these videos except that he was donating his sperm. I’d love to see the videos for those.
By the looks of it, a few probably found each other.
Fred getting all that trim.
My name is cottoneyeryan but my friends call me “big” cottoneyeryan….classic
I'm borderline thinking of putting this on my Tinder Profile.
Just don't mention that you're also borderline. 🚫
Please do. It helps when they self-screen.
If it hadn't been for cottoneyeryan,
I'd been married, no I ain't lyin'
You've probably already noticed that I have incredibly blue eyes...
Incredibly blue eyes white dragons
"Them shits is brown, you Douglas lookin MF."
Believe me, the 1980s was an interesting decade.
O I believe you
Big Phil? ….I’m listening….
But.... Only his friends call him that 🤔
Bwaaa ha ha
Big bill to his friends because he's always driving up the bar tab with his alcoholism and he thinks it's his member.
Came here for big Phil
In the 80s everyone was dorky. Even the cool people. It was a simple time without globalization and memes to remind us how ridiculous we were.
And they were sincere about it. I’ve really started missing sincerity lately - the guy who said he was a wild guy at night literally felt he was a wild guy at night and was proud of it. Meme humor is starting to irritate me…
Nowadays folk spend 50% of their time saying we should all be who we want to be, and the other 50% taking the piss out of outliers :/
What really gets me is terminal unseriousness. Like you're too cool to care about anything.
Globalisation started in the 80s, so I wouldn't say it was without. I think they also had memes too, just delivered by fax instead of online, IIRC.
ALF is a good 80s meme.
This is awesome!
There it is!
This is the comment I came here to make.
Guy after Big Phil looks like the love child of Matthew McConaughey and Nicolas Cage.
The first guy looks like Weird Al in a costume
The 80's didn't waste any time.
How did video dating work? like did people just mail VHS tapes to each other or was there some centralized service? Could you request tapes of certain kinds of folks? I wonder how much of that model is what online dating is like now
Probably a little bit of both depending on the company. The guy with the coke bottle glasses said fast forward if you're a smoker so they probably had several profiles to go through per tape
lol, swiping right only took 20 seconds back in the day
Tracking tracking tracking....Oh and then if you were an audiophile you had a big assed center channel with a magnet and the first time you thought up on the TV was a good spot...oops! makes a rainbow on the top of your screen.
So back to the hypothetical origins of the post. Was it a guy going through Dad's stash– looking for some '80s adult entertainment and stumbled upon this trainwreck? Or maybe it's Mom, who kept the tape of her husband before they met
I think the person who recorded the tape would fill out a form of their interests, hobbys, desires, preferences etc and the company or business would keep a record. Then person B would come in and tell them their interests and what their looking for and the company would give them the appropriate tapes. I think there were also sections for things like normal friendships and casual hookups.
There used to be dating bureaus where people could go in and say what they're looking for and based on that they'd be given some videos.
My name is Jeff
Thought this was a comedy sketch for a second. Turned out to be even better.
Fred is the most interesting man in the world
A refined valley dude?
He's telling us what a convincing humanoid robot he is.
Mawreese definitely had a basement holding cell and a shrine to Barbara Streisand in a hidden alcove behind his bed.
That’s why some people call him the space cowboy
But he's a h'wild man by night (and an executive by day). What even is a h'wild man?
That was the best one.
Oh Fred, I hope you found your viking princess. For all of us.
I think this was debunked years ago as being a comedy skit filmed in the mid 2000s, it’s very funny though
Brian Potter (1st guy)
Haha I was looking for this comment
I forgot all about Fred! He's probably the most down to earth and real candidate from that singles service.
The guy who does “fashion photography” has George Michael hair.
Eternal tao by the voidz
Why the hell did it cut off right when we got to Fred with the Viking horns??
Dont tell me Fred is single.
Fred don’t play no shit
I’d be friends with Fred.
Tom Cruise on red?
Editing the title
(Sex-offenders dating video )
Sorry about the mistake
If I could give you an award I would.
Some people call me the space cowboy, some call me the gangster of love…some people call me Maurice…
I thought the first guy was Peter Kay in disguise.
If you're introducing yourself on a singles ad, you probably shouldn't start with saying "Hi mom..." lmfao
Love on the spectrum: 80’s edition
BIG PHIL is back!!!
Lol Fred is awesome.
Hi i’m fred
The first guy is just a character played by Weird Al right?? Right?
I thought that was weird Al on the first guy
4th guy is definitely Jason Sudekas
My dyslexic ass though this said "edible singles" and I was so fucking concerned
Damn, Fred is one hell of a catch, I doubt he was on there long 😂
Where Are They Now?
They're angry boomers.
Where can we find more of these? I'd love to see a montage
Fred putting it all out there. And I’m here for it.
I wonder how many of them are still looking
🎶“Low-ered Ex-pec-taa-tiooons“ 🎶
You know if it was b&w it could almost be r/oldschoolcool
I'm still oldschoolcringe tho.
As said above, hope they found love.
Fred a goat
we have different definitions of cool. And I'm pretty sure yours is wrong
...ok...thanks for stopping by with an opinion no one asked for.
Although, judging by your predictable, bland, uninspired, tiresome, and lacklustre post history, you are hardly one to be throwing around judgement of anyone's "coolness" of their post.
You both seem fun. I'm into a nice bath with some champaign. By day I'm a real-estate consultant, and by night I'm a real party animal. You should get in touch.
I like to talk late into the night about propane and propane accessories.
Mike is Weird Al
Was just about to say this!
I was waiting to see Stuart Bloom.
This is the greatest sweater ad I've ever seen.
1st guy: Weird Al Yankovic(?)
99% sure the first guy was McLovin
ok but some of these guys are kinda cute ngl
The first guy reminds me of Weird Al in "Fat"
I’m fucking dying 😂
I wonder what the body count between them come to
Mike Francesa ?
That's one weird Weird Al at the beginning.
Mike...they're already hitting the fast forward button.
Fred’s a baller
Fuck yea, Fred. Get it, boy.
My friends call me “big Phil”.
Why aren’t you just dating these “friends”, Phil?
big phill seems cool
r/incel brought to life
Was waiting for Dr. Steve Brule
Sauce? There has to be a couple hours of this somewhere.
My friends and I have had a group chat for years. It's called Executives by Day
I was convinced the first guy Mike was British comedian Peter Kay!
Problem is most kids in the 70’s didn’t watch much TV.
The first one is Brian Potter from Phoenix Nights hoping he’ll pick up Beverly!
The guy who does fashion photography definitely has some bodies in his crawl space.
“Hi mom” why tho?
60 percent murderers
I have literally never heard of somebody else with Munro as a first name. What a cool dude.
I honestly thought the first guy was Matt Lucas in character 😆
Get some Fred!!
I’m a real steak and potatoes type of guy. Different video same premise
Fred is cool!
Fred looks the most interesting of the whole lot! Can I date Fred?
The first one looks like British comedian Peter Kay when he did Phoenix nights
r/Unexpected at the end there...
You know, now I don’t feel so bad not having date anyone in the past 8 years. Somehow.. these people have it worst.
The most incredible part of this video is that everyone in it were between the ages of 22 and 26.
Pretty sure Thomas Lennon was at least 2 of those guys.
Ted Cruz was a "refined valley dude" in his younger days.
Since 1980, Fred had conquered a mighty empire and sired an army's worth of children.
Why can't my dad be Fred
