So it started out with me looking at a video Post by Movie2k. As I was watching it, I realized that girl looked really familiar. Upon further inspection, I do know her! It’s Ashley Mitchell from MTV’s Real World. Actually, I was friends with her way before her MTV stint.
I then took a look at this guy’s channel. PrankInvasion on YouTube and saw some of his videos. I thought it was harmless fun. He’s just making out with a bunch of girls. But what is dangerous is that some guys are starting to take him seriously. This stuff bothers me, because anyone with basic pick up knowledge knows that what he’s doing is unrealistic. You don’t go up to girls, say “guess my name”, and then say, “you’re fucking adorable” and make out for 5 minutes straight. Upon further research, I found that Backwardshat already posted about his videos being totally fake.
What’s annoying is that this guy is basically making a living off his 1 million YouTube subscribers, based on a false reality. What’s more annoying is that guys are actually thinking this is real, and it further confuses them as to the legitimacy of pick up techniques.
People claim “fake” shit all the time, like Vitaly’s makeout video and Simple Pickups video. The reason you never see them get “called out” is because, those girls ARE anonymous, and their pick up is real. Vitaly probably had to go through a lot of girls to find the 3 that would makeout with him, but he’s good at approaching girls and Simple Pickup is legit because I’ve seen Kong doing it in person in San Francisco with his buddies. Also, they don’t mind posting their lame pickups on film too.
Don’t fall for all the in-field stuff you see. Get guys who are good to hangout and see them in person.
