Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
YouTube channel “whatever” recently released a video that challenges standard social procedure in relationships. In their video titled, “Getting Girls’ Phone Numbers without Talking,” three young men approach women and try to get their phone numbers, all without talking
Almost everyone can relate to those moments of awkward silence, where keeping a conversation flowing is a struggle. Many people’s anxiety about starting a conversation, especially with a potential romantic interest, usually has to do with running out of things to say and entering the dreaded awkward silence.
Surprisingly, not only were the men successful in their endeavors to get phone numbers, but the students they approached seemingly found it quite amusing. The social experiment was conducted at University of California, Santa Barbara just in time for Spring Break.
The YouTube channel “whatever,” based on social experiments and pranks, has 30,000 subscribers and 1.5 million total video views since its launch in February 2013.
Their most popular video, “How To Get ANY Girl’s Phone Number” has received 500,000 video views within 10 days of its release.
Their videos have been featured on the Huffington Post, Sports Illustrated, Mashable, ESPN, and various other major websites and news agencies. The latest video “Getting Girls’ Phone Numbers without Talking,” was recently featured on The Daily Buzz.
The channel’s goal is to produce entertaining, light-hearted, humorous videos that put a twist on everyday situations in order to defy social conventions.
