The Spy Who Swiped Right: Tinder & Paul Feig’s Spy Join Forces
"To swipe left or to swipe right, that is the question." – William Shakespeare-Rogers, quoted in 2014.
Most singles in our modern digital age have suffered the agony associated with online dating and online dating apps. Those familiar with the process know its starts with deciding which direction you should swipe, left or right – a euphemism for yes or no – then comes the trepidation of what happens once the deed is done. Who messages who first? How do you respond to the corny pickup line? Once you make it past the awkward getting to know you phase, the dance culminates with one person asking the other out and setting up the when and where for the first date?
20th Century Fox and Tinder have made at least part of this tricky and sometimes severely awkward exchange easier, well for one day and one date – by offering the perfect date pairing. Are you enticed? Go on the Tinder mobile, swipe to pick your date for this evening, May 14th, and in 50 participating U.S. and Canadian markets, Tinder and 20th Century Fox will give you a free pair of tickets to a special screening of the action-packed comedy Spy.
What can be better for a first date than going to something as old-school as a great movie (something to talk about afterward over a drink)? What makes this even better, Spy will not be released to the public until June 5th, so you and your date will share something special that not many other people have experienced.
Spy, starring Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Allison Janney, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Miranda Hart and Jude Law, is about a female super-spy who embarks on a daring mission. This secret agent comedy is from writer/director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat).
Fox and Tinder have given you the when and the where, and Tinder can help with the who – now the rest is on you.
