Last night, I was complaining to John DeVore about the horrors of online dating, specifically sharing choice lines from particularly appalling profiles. He, in turn, sent me this video. Point taken, JDV. It could be much, much, much worse.
Cable TV provider Comcast is trying to get singles to participate in their new video dating service, “Dating on Demand,” by taping guys and girls in bars. So, when people are a couple drinks into their night, an interviewer comes at them, asking them to share their guilty pleasures, show a tattoo, or offer details about a past hookup. But don’t worry, even though Comcast seems to be recruiting any willing bar-goer, everyone has to sign a waiver and allow the company to run a background check on them. And the service seems fairly exclusive (or perhaps few want to be video-taped in places with bad lighting), because they only plan to add about 40 to 50 new videos a month in south Florida, one of Dating on Demand’s 21 U.S. markets.
