Re: Opinions on famous video
Guaranteed this would work to get you numbers. It works for two reasons:
(1) Do you notice where he is asking girls for their numbers? He's pulling them off the street. These girls are in autopilot and he is breaking them out of autopilot, but they are still in a transition state when they give their numbers (i.e., they aren't thinking). Notice how when he asks, "Why are you giving your number out so easily?" they all stop and go, "Yeah, why am I giving my number out so easily?"
(2) He's exuding a ton of confidence and women aren't used to that. He's showing instant interest by asking for the number, but then showing disinterest by looking away, etc.
What I'm more curious about is how many of these numbers turn into flakes. I bet 95% or more of these girls won't answer the phone if he calls them. The problem with this approach is that there is a very limited amount of attraction built.
I would suggest trying stuff like this anyways. It shows you what you can get away with if you are confident and alpha.
