Preparing for a Date

I’m so excited for you to see this.

Every once in a while, Jameson and I pull out all the stops to create a video that nobody would ever see coming. And you’re about to see the latest one.

It cost way more than we should have spent. It took up way more time than we should reasonably allocate to a single video. But the result is so worth it . . .

My heart.

Make haste. You have to get back out there.

’tis a war zone!

To show them you’re serious.

I’m scared they’ll get too close.

With the amount of armor you’re wearing, that’s the least of your worries. Are we married to chain mail? I love you in boiled leather.

Godspeed.

  1. This was great! Not only did it feel relatable but gave me a good laugh. Always a joy to watch your quirky dating videos.

  2. That was amazing and very accurate. It was worth the time and money to see this hilarious dating Super Bowl commercial! Love how your mind works.

  3. Very funny. by the way I’ve taken Matthew hussey’s advice about complimenting men a bit right at the start. As a result I’m slaying.

    1. Go Girl… Meanwhile the video, nicely done, worth every penny. Gave me a good laugh too. When are you all coming to Kenya on Safari… Matt’ you and your entire team deserve cocktails at sunset by an elephant watering hole… ; )

  4. I enjoy watching your videos and I listen to your advice, one day if I ever meet anyone, hopefully it will be useful

  5. Good job Matthew. That was so funny and close to the reality when being single and dating … It IS a warzone out thereSo thumbs up, all the way here from Denmark.

  6. That was funny . . . . captured your attention. And, yes . . . . we all wear armour around us when sitting across from a stranger on a date.

  7. That feels so true! It’s a war zone! At the age of 49, even the speed dating has given up on us…But it’s a very funny video, Matt.

  8. Spot on. Exactly true down to the protective armor and painful spear to the heart (break). Well done guys, well done

  9. Lmao… i thought this was an entirely different video when it came up in my notifications because i just saw the thumbnail. Great work, another talent u can add to your belt

  10. This is very cute! A very clever way to add light to the trueness that is the dating battlefield. Gave me a nice Sunday morning chuckle.

  11. Matthew, this was amazing!!! It brings the point across while still being hilarious. Definitely Super Bowl ad vibes. Great job to you and your cast. You’re on your way to bigger things, my friend. Thank you for everything that you do! Best wishes!
