DATE-A-MAX: The Video Dating Service That Time Forgot

You know what I love? Video dating profiles.

With the rise of Match.com and other internet dating sites, the heyday of video dating may be long gone, but thanks to the good people at Grey Pop Productions, the magic lives on. They’ve uncovered a trove of old dating profiles from the 80s and have posted them online for our delight.

These extremely funny videos feature great performers like Ben Feldman (Mad Men), Neil Hopkins (Lost), and Amy Halloran (Disney’s Go Figure)…uhhhh, what I meant to say is, they feature REAL singles from the 1980s!

Let’s meet some of these love-seekers.

Meet Ronald F., a collector and purveyor of women’s shoes. He’s an avid knot-tier, gets turned on by tears, and loves musical theater. Something’s a little bit off about this guy.

Meet Joey V., a Christian rocker who’s all business during the day and incredible blond ringlets by night. He’s also quite a poet! If you love the Lord, this is the guy for you.

Meet Deborah, who reminds herself of “Geraldine Ferrera.” Fellas, get with her and you can mini-golf free forever! Just steer clear of her lips.

Meet Chip, an incredibly wealthy stockbroker. He owns his own cellphone! Are you ready to make an investment in yourself, ladies?

Meet Jerome, a true romantic with a knack for tearing tickets. Like Jumbo Size popcorn? Then Jerome’s your guy. He’s also got his own place — this weekend, anwyay.

Meet Charlie, a personal trainer seeking a toned and tanned woman. Easy on the confidence, though.

Meet Carrie, who’s looking for a serious man that can support her (and her sister). She’s looking for a healthy man who resembles Lou Diamond Phillips.

Meet Derrick, a skilled player of Dungeons and Dragons. He’s so humble and giving, he’ll cast spells of protection and not even hope to receive any credit. Are you ready for a magical love?

Meet Arnold, who loves his mother. He’s ready to spend his allowance on you, so don’t miss out!

Meet Lyle, a tech industry titan who loves popped collars and the Loggins look. Just imagine ladies, you can listen to smooth music on his boat while the tides of romance sweep you away.

Meet Roger, aka Racquetball Roger. He’s got a well-developed appreciation of the female form. As a professional bowler, he can treat you to many dinners at fancy restaurants!

I truly hope that Grey Pop Productions uncovers more of these incredible 1980s dating videos that definitely do NOT feature some of 2012′s finest comic talents. The Grey Pop team — Mitchell Bisschop, Jeff Galfer, Jeremy Cohen, Jason Baldari, and Brian Maillard — have done us all a true service by posting these gems. To stay tuned, Like Date-a-Max on Facebook.

Just like you, man. I got the shotgun, you got the briefcase. All in the game, though, right?

    The youtube ad that came up on “Meet Carrie” was “Meet Chinese Lady”….which seems about right.

    Just caught up with this post a couple of days ago and had a total “When Worlds Collide” moment. I went to college with Mitchell Bisschop and Brian Maillard (oh yeah – Maillard, not Mallard…though his friends do call him Duck). Didn’t really know Mitch, but I know Brian. No idea how those guys know your friend Neil; small world of good actors out there trying to make their mark, I guess. I’ve seen some other stuff Mitch and Brian have done, but wasn’t aware of this one. These are fantastic.

    • Small world indeed. Thanks for the heads up on that typo! Taken straight from the Facebook page, in my defense.
