They meet at a kosher sushi restaurant in LA–where Chaya immediately says she prepared a list of questions, because she doesn’t want to waste her time, stating: “As our mothers may have discussed, I’m interested in leading a traditional Jewish life. Eventually, Leizer whips out his phone and pretends to talk to his mom in Yiddish.
This is where the fun begins, because he’s talking to Chaimie instead–telling him to leave.
First dates can definitely be tough, but imagine how much smoother you’d be with Blink-182 or Linkin Park guiding you through all that would-be awkward conversation.
Watch the two bands—they’re calling themselves “Blinkin Park”—do just that in this Funny or Die video.
Unfortuantely for both men, Chaya knows how to speak Yiddish, too.
The problem isn’t necessarily a general aversion to video dating, which has been around longer than smartphones and the internet.
Video-dating services enjoyed popularity in the ‘80s, when suitors would record personal profiles on VHS tapes to be sorted and distributed to potential matches by dating services.
Clips of these cringe-worthy videos exist online today, where subjects speak directly into a camera about who they are and what they’re looking for.
Bialik stars as Chaya, an ultra serious neurosurgeon whose mother played matchmaker and set her up on a blind date with Leizer, a somewhat shy man played by Batalion.
Leizer is awkardly accompanied by his wingman Chaimie, as though they’re in 3rd grade. I have all the question right off the bat, so a blind date is just a more efficient way of seeing if this is even possible.” When Chaya asks why Chaimie is even there (because that’s not awkward to bring your wingman along at all…), he pretends he just happened to run into Leizer.
