If you've ever wondered how Tinder was founded, wonder no further; Bad Weather Films has created a hilarious Tinder parody that reveals how the popular dating (read: hook-up) app was conceived. The spoof makes light of David Fincher's 2010 drama 'The Social Network' in the process.
The protagonist sets out on a mighty quest to create something that will help him meet girls. When asked why he doesn't just talk to them, the answer is obvious: "Because I'm socially awkward." Ah yes. Indeed, aren't all social networks born out of a desperate need to overcome crippling insecurities and paralyzing self-doubt?
The film's internal drama comes in the form of a tragic, accidental swipe to the left, leaving the audience to wonder if the protagonist will ever find the girl of his dreams. Perhaps she's been under his nose this entire time? Cue hopeful music here.
