Awkward Guy Tries to Use Taylor Swift Lyrics as Pick-Up Lines
Meet Tommy. Tommy seems like a nice enough guy, though he admitted — on YouTube, no less — that he has no idea how to talk to girls. Hoping to turn around his luck, he leaned on the queen of love: Taylor Swift. In a funny series of first introductions gone wrong, Tommy uses lyrics from Swift’s hit songs to try to pick up girls.
Both awkwardness and hilarity ensue (watch video below).
Truth be told, it doesn’t sound like a bad plan. After all, Swift is known for her ability to pen a winning love song. Unfortunately, her lyrics might come across as a little bit forward to the unsuspecting women Tommy tries to woo.
First, he walks up to a girl who is minding her own business on a bench. “Do you remember when we were sitting there by the water, and you put your arm around me for the first time?” he asks her, quoting Swift’s song ‘Mine.’ Barely looking up from her phone, the girl answers, “Wait, what?”
Tommy doesn’t have any better luck when he tries to use ‘Teardrops on My Guitar’ on a second girl. Then, things get awkward when he channels ‘Love Story’ by walking up to a stranger and saying, “Hey, I talked to your Dad.” She stops and gives him her full attention, asking “My Dad?”
It’s then he makes his biggest mistake yet. “He said to go pick out a white dress,” Tommy says, kneeling on one knee, “‘Cause it’s a love story, baby, just say yes.” The girl just awkwardly responds with a quick, “Sorry, I have a boyfriend” and walks away.
Despite his best efforts, Tommy doesn’t end up with a date in the end. He’s lucky that he’s charming enough to avoid getting slapped.
We do have to applaud him for being up on the times — the really big Taylor Swift fan cites lyrics from Swift’s new songs, ‘I Knew You Were Trouble,’ ‘Begin Again’ and ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.’ Her new ‘Red’ album hits on October 22.
