Conan O’Brien recently enlisted Dave Franco to go on a Tinder adventure with him. The stars set up profiles using fake names—Chip Whitley for O’Brien; Djengus Roundstone for Franco—and new profile pictures, then got to it. And by “got to it,” we mean they tried very hard to find a woman who would agree to meet up with them.

In order to be successful in his line of work, Conan O’Brien has to keep up with the times. And in today’s world, that involves teaming up with Dave Franco and trying to meet people using Tinder.
Step one: They create profiles using their real pictures but fake names—Djengus Roundstone (for Franco) and Chip Whitley (for O’Brien). Then after sorting through all of their many matches, including a 74-year-old woman named Gloria who isn’t O’Brien’s biggest fan, they jump into a duct tape-filled van and head to meet one of Franco’s matches. There, they discover what the internet has to offer.
There is at least one crotch shot involved in the making of this video.
Sorry, ladies, but you won’t be setting up with a date with Ed Sheeran on Tinder anytime soon.
The popular dating app has been in talks to allow verified accounts for more famous Tinder users, similar to Twitter. Sheeran was apparently offered the very first verified profile — but he ended up turning it down. “It just sounds quite creepy doing that,” he told Total Access in a radio interview. “You’re just using your celebrity status to hook up with chicks.” (You listening, Franco?)
Sorry, Tinder users, you don’t actually have a shot with Mindy Lahiri or Danny Castellano. Fox appears to have teamed up with the popular dating app to promote The Mindy Project by matching up the show’s fictional characters with real people.
Fake profiles for Dr. Danny Castellano (Chris Messina) and Mindy herself (show creator Mindy Kaling) contain quirky profiles with descriptions like “tiny doctor in big city looking for love, friendship, or a donut so good it’s spiritual.”
