In this Tinder-style ad series, Chicago hopes to make its best sights as appealing as a hot date. The Weekend Quickie ads are styled to look like dating profiles viewed on an app called "Instant Attractions" and in the place of a shot of a person's face, the profile pictures are of landmarks like the Saint Louis Science Center and the St. Louis Zoo, paired with extremely suggestive lines that suggest some wilder-than-usual activities be preformed at these locations. Although some of them are pretty bad, like a bad pickup line, the text is at least laughable.

Right now the Tinder-like ads are visible on Weekend Quickie's website and the ads backed by the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission will soon be spotted everywhere in Chicago on commuter trains.
