Viral video: Asking girls out by calling their parents

Powered by Topple

This is a charming video, but I found it amusing that these youngsters think wooing girls through their parents is something new. I give them props for updating the concept and bringing it into the digital age, but back in the day, in the ethnic New York City neighborhood I grew up in, dating was a family affair.

If you didn’t charm the girl, and her family, there was a very good chance an angry father would be out looking for you with malice in his heart, and a baseball bat in his hands.

Still, good going, guys.
