After Wednesday night's episode, many are concluding "My Strange Addiction" is living up to its name.
A writer with Daily Mail calls the show's stars "weirder than ever."Fans on Twitter had a similar reaction, with many tweeting about how strange and uncomfortable the relationship between Linda and Bruce made them feel.
In the off chance that you manage to break the virtual barrier and coordinate a physical rendezvous, there is a high likelihood the person will have mentally checked out by the second cocktail, eager to swipe on to the next B-list bikini model.
Per Adweek, Hinge’s chief brand officer Katie Hunt said, “This whole world was inspired by everything that we were seeing, and we felt that by doing an animated film.
“It kind of gave us license to have a bit more levity to talk about it and also sort of talk about it in a more abstracted way, which we were really attracted to.” The carnival short was created in partnership with The Studio and Hinge’s agency Red Antler, and serves as a bit of a depressing metaphor for online dating, with the Carnival boasting everything from the Cycle of Loneliness, a ferris wheel with only one seat, a dick pic tent, the Hall of Filters and the Catch a Catfish pool.
Well, here's to hoping Linda can get Bruce fixed up so they can enjoy a happy life together.
Research uncovered by Hinge shows that many see dating apps as a game, but in this flick, the game becomes very dark and disillusioned, with the main character walking around a Dystopian carnival of loneliness.
