The exceedingly chipper voice used through the whole thing is humorous but also nails on the head some vital issues and how sad it is that JUST FOR A DATE, she had to do these things.
Also, her phone is carefully incorporated for her safety. Her roommate is in charge of sending safety texts and tracking her friend’s progress on the date, as well as being on the lookout for coded emoji messages that she’s in trouble!
This is smart, and we’re going to recommend that ladies do incorporate some of these methods when meeting with blind dates, even if it is a joke.
The guy, in contrast, just throws on his jacket, says bye to his roommate, and heads out for his date. He’s not even really wearing anything nice, in point of fact. It’s humorous in how realistic it is.
