This might be the greatest bloody love story of the Coronavirus era
You might have seen the story online the other day about a couple of young whippersnappers in New York who’ve begun dating thanks to a unique set of long-distance circumstances. If you didn’t, it all started when Jeremy Cohen saw a sheila dancing on a rooftop across the road and sent his drone over with his number and asked her to call him. Of course, you’ll notice we said ‘started’. Yeah, nah, this one’s really on a roll now. Check out the story below…
So look, basically, you’re gonna gather all this from the pictures, but it’s a love story for the modern age, and it doesn’t even include Tinder or any other social media dating apps. Yeah, nah, it’s all about old fashioned male desperation!
As already explained, the drone was only the start, and you can kinda watch it all unfold in Jeremy’s Instagram videos for a bit more detail, but following a long-distance date, in which the young lovers shared microwave dinners, and chatted over Facetime, Jeremy cooked up the perfect plan to meet her face to face.
And, yeah, you’d better believe he wrapped up. He turned himself into the Bubble Boy!
“I was thinking about buying one because I thought it could be a way to make people smile walking around the city while also being safe, but I couldn’t find any online. Then my artist friend, Pablo Rochat, posted a link to one in his story (I think as a joke). I couldn’t believe he found an actual link to buy one, so I immediately purchased it. Then I met Tori and I think it was right before our first date, it arrived in the mail and I realized it would make for a perfect second date.”
He’s definitely shown a bit of ingenuity, but it seems to have been popular in more ways than one.
“Everyone outside had to do a double-take at us—it would be a combination of bewildering and jovial looks. It gave people something to laugh and smile at. As we walked down the streets, people were even watching and taking videos out of their windows. Hopefully, some people copy me! I’d be flattered—it’s safe, fun, and it gives people a reason to smile which is what we could use a little more of now.”
As you can see from the pictures, everything went really well. We don’t know if this is gonna turn into a thing or not, but what do you reckon?
Final thought: So, how about it, do you reckon this could work? Would you try it? Let us know in the Facebook comments!
