Craigslist’s “Missed Connections” offers a wealth of pathetic losers admitting that they didn’t have the stones to approach someone. Every now and then it’s used to taunt drunk people, and that’s what this is.
The ad is absolutely brilliant. Titling it “drunk guy” and marking it w4m ensures that every dude who went to Wicker Park Fest will check that listing. Each one is thinking that in their drunken stupor they managed to work some awesome game before going home and passing out while flipping through Tinder. Unfortunately any hopes they had of getting Craigslist laid are immediately dashed. On the upside, everyone who checks the listing is probably a little more appreciative of the hat they still have.
Tip of the lost hat to Brandon Wall.
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: If you’re the sort of person who can’t go up and talk to strangers, I’d recommend turning to Sex Drive‘s Randy and Andy for tips.
