More video dating awkwardness courtesy of the Found Footage Festival. What do you do when you finally meet the goddess? Seduce her with hypnosis, of course. Previously...

Whoa.... As amorphous as the term creepy tends to be, I think that is as damn close of a definition if I've ever seen one.

The guy with long hair who's looking for his goddess...

This guy in his youth?

Seduce her with hypnosis

Ah, those halcyon days when we used to call it "seduction" instead of "date rape."

Man, the "Seduce Her Through Hypnosis" video was way creepier than I expected. I was expecting it to be like the dumb "Flirting with Magic!" clips (from the always wonderful Everything is Terrible).

It's not using cutesy tricks as a social crutch. It's borderline forcing a person to do sexual favors against their will. (I say "borderline," as I'm not sure whether the video meant to show the woman hypnotized into sleeping with him because she then thought he was the statue, or if she was just so aroused from his routine that she just had to have him. Either one is still creepy, though.)

Also, I'm assuming that hypnosis against one's will rarely works in real life. If anyone has evidence otherwise, I'd love to hear it, as I don't know so much on the subject.

That wasn't even a date. He came to her house with the intent of bamboozling her for sex.

I love corduroy, turtlenecks and grooming my porn 'stache.

Hypnosis and mind-control are fetishes in and of themselves. The internet has gone a long way in educating people that 1) they have a fetish and 2) there are members of the desired gender who have it too, and 3) there are ways of meeting and sharing their fantasies with each other in non-creepy and fun ways.

Before 1995 or so? The world was probably a lonely, lonely place for mind-control freaks.

Sounds pretty much like an average date in 1975.

The rabbit isn't trying to play the piano. He's trying to escape.

From a crazy rabbit lady.

He's a hypnotist... hypnotist of ladies...

I knew this guy in college who bought all those "Learn the art of hypnotic suggestion" books. Everything in them was geared to the "art" of seduction. He was completely serious. We'd go to parties and try out all these ridiculous techniques.

But this was in the early 1980's. Before AIDS. Getting laid could not have been any easier. The rest of us were get laid just fine.

The irony was all that seduction and hypnosis was so he could avoid the simplest method. Asking.

It was actually talking to a woman that terrified the guy.

Not all mustache are parasites.

... Some are symbiotes. Luckily, we are magnanimous and will forgive your small-mindedness, oh hairless one.

Oh my god, the mathematician!1!1! I didn't think it was possible for someone to come off as genuinely hilarous & cool while in a video dating clip, but, yep.
