Dating could be a LOT more... pixelly.
If you've ever used Tinder, you're either addicted to it, or addicted but in a much less enjoyable way. But it's a testament to how far we've come as a species that you can determine your future partners with just a swipe of the finger.
Back in the 80s, it wasn't that easy. To use Tinder back then, people had to send off a form with a picture, and wait two weeks for a diskette with the software, judging matches based on the pixelated images included in the floppy disk. It was very tiresome and nobody ever dated anyone.
Alright, that's not necessarily true, but it's a reality imagined in this hilarious parody infomercial from YouTuber user SquirrelMonkeyCom. The 80's-esque ad shows you all the steps necessary to take part in the future of dating - and we're almost convinced.
Check out the skit below.
