Picking Up Girls with Blink-182 Lyrics [Video]

Posted on: June 12th, 2012 at 10:19 am by

A day late, a buck short, this video is still hilarious. As part of a recent Blink-182 contest to promote the upcoming 2012 European tour, uber-fan Tommy Woolridge decided to use the band’s song lyrics as proper pick-up lines. While he was shot down numerous times by unsuspecting girls, the punk-pop trio loved it enough to crown him victor.

For his candid stunt, Woolridge won Blink-182 concert tickets for life. Well, I guess this is growing up.

In case you’re wondering here are the quoted songs and timecodes:

0:18 First Date
0:26 I Miss You
0:34 Going Away to College
0:54 Feeling This
1:10 What’s My Age Again?
1:34 Dumpweed
1:46 First Date
2:22 All the Small things

Meanwhile, what other band would make for good lyrical pickup lines?  Have at it in the comments!
