  1. @athlon84 Hey athlon84. I got the reference, big SATC fan here 😉 I do think the concept of the vid is good and the service itself is a great idea. I just think that the resulting message is very unclear. Two of his friends merely bitch and scoff at him while the other doesn't even bother listening. How are we meant to be thinking? What a sad view of gay people. Like the characters in this video, IMO this is more likely to scare people away than rally them to the cause

  2. IMO this would be better if someone gets a message on their phone. One friend says playfully "What's that a message from your new personal trainer?" The other says, "No, it's the new message service on [insert-website-here]. All of the dating websites will be using it. All you have to do is accept the invitation when it comes through like this… [insert explanation of how it all works here]. – – – Keep the discussion frank, with minimal sneering and wincing from those gathered

  3. @jcamjcam So you think people are not going to opt in because they think the actors are too camp? Huh? *scratches head*

    Do you not see they are mirroring the cast from Sex and The City?

  4. Great video but I think the previous people who commented don't get that the actors are mirroring the cast of Sex and The City…

  5. I know it's meant to be a bit of fun but I do agree with the previous poster. Cringe-worthy acting and screaming stereotypes will put off a lot of people. I can't imagine anything worse than sitting with this bunch of self-centred bitchy queens. I'm also confused about how the service actually works. How is it different from sending a message to people you've been with? The beard guy's rambling diverts from from your message when they should all be paying attention, surely!

  6. It's a great idea, and thanks go to the guys that have made this video, but I just wish it was a bit more polished. I know it says it was thrown together, and these guys may be volunteers (I'm not sure), but it's a bit naff. Sorry guys! The acting is just laughable, and they all seem excessively, and perhaps stereotypically camp. If it was a little more representative, better script, and had better production values, it would have much more impact. I may get shot down in flames for my comments.
