How Did Women Find Their Baby Daddies Before YouTube?
Imagine this: You’re at a bar one night and meet a cute foreign guy. You have a nice conversation, and decide to go for a walk by the river. You get caught up in the heat of the moment, and end up back at your place where you do the horizontal polka with this mysterious man. When you wake up in the morning, finally sober enough to ask questions like “What’s your name?” and “Where are you from?” he’s gone. Only he’s left behind a little memento of your night together—in other words, you’re pregnant. This is exactly what happened to this Danish woman, Karen, who is very much hoping to find the father of her ridiculously adorable baby, August. She’s taken to YouTube to try to reach him, which is certainly a creative use of the medium. All she remembers is the name of the bar they met at and one conversation topic—“heugue.” (Anyone know what that means?) The way Karen delivers the information makes me want to reach through the screen and give her a bear hug. She’s not even mad at this a**hole. She just unselfishly wants the guy to know he has a son. Hopefully, she’ll find him. [BuzzFeed]
UPDATE: The Danish government sure got me with this video. This whole thing actually turned out to be a hoax to promote tourism in Denmark. Karen aka actress Ditte Arnth Jorgensen and baby August (not her baby) were hired help. Not bad acting. I guess possibility of one-night-stand with hot Danish girls = increase in male travelers. Moral of story: One night stands are good for tourism but fathering a Danish child is even better. [Mashable]
