Girl Has No Idea She’s Talking To “Forrest Gump” On Tinder And It’s Hilarious

No one charmed audiences more in the mid-90’s than Forrest Gump. His innocent appeal and one-liners made him an instant icon, so when one guy on Tinder decided to channel Forrest Gump when talking to women on the dating site, well it’s not only hilarious but it just makes sense. Forrest had game, folks.

24-year-old Tinder user Blake has done everything to tip off to these women that he is speaking through Gump’s voice beyond actually calling his profile “Forrest Gump”. That’d just be too easy for them to figure out now wouldn’t it. Instead, he’s left his real name, but everything else is full-on Forrest including a bio that says he’s ex-military, loves to go long distance running and enjoys “spending my weekends mowing my expansive lawn and making small talk with people at bus stops.” Awesome.

Of course the fun doesn’t stop there. Blake posted a snippet from a conversation he had with a young lady and didn’t drop the Forrest Gump character once. Of course it’s possible the young woman has never seen Forrest Gump (I know, that generation actually exists now) but her naivety makes the convo that much more amazing.

“And that’s all I have to say about that….”

This isn’t the first time someone has posed as a popular film character for the entertainment of others. Someone actually posed as American Psycho‘s Patrick Bateman which was equally hilarious. But all of it really comes down to one conclusion; These kids really have to get out more.

As for you, Blake. Keep it up because it’s just too hilarious not to.
