Go Figure, James Bond’s Pickup Lines Don’t Work in Real Life

Fancy dress and good looks can only get you so far

In a few days’ time, the latest James Bond installment, “SPECTRE,” will open in theaters worldwide, and with it, we’ll get another look into the very dangerous and very glamourous life of agent 007. “SPECTRE” will see him in the company of 2 new Bond Girls, played by Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux.

In other words, Bond’s charm is as deadly as his skills are, and he remains for ever the kind of man women swoon over.

Or at least, that’s what happens in the fantasy world he lives in. In case you still had doubts, any man, spy or not, acting like James Bond does in real life, would probably get laughed at a lot and maybe even smacked in the face once or twice.

Dating expert Hayley Quinn set out to find out just how far James Bond’s pickup lines would take a man in real life, so she enlisted the help of fellow blogger Ollie Pearce to test them out in the streets of London.

Ollie got dressed up in a good tux and made ample use of his good looks in his attempt to channel the spirit of Bond, and while that worked for a while, when he kept delivering silly lines, all women lost interest in him.

The entire experiment is shown in the video below. To Ollie’s good luck, he didn’t get slapped once, not even when he asked one woman if the collar “matches the cuffs.”
