Using and forming a pickup line is a science — you have to say the right thing, in the right way and at the right time — and despite getting all this right, you may still fail.
But even Michael Douglas, who managed to eventually marry Catherine Zeta-Jones after using the pickup line "I want to father your children", couldn't have got away with what you'll see in the Instagram video below.
According to tales doing the rounds on the Internet, the person, dubbed as "StarbucksDrakeHands" on the web, hit on a girl in a Los Angeles-area Starbucks.
His first step was evidently successful, as he managed to extract the lady's number — but what he did next, is quite unforgivable. Or, let's just say, it's downright odd... you don't know what to make of it!
With Drake's "Hold On, We’re Going Home" playing in the background, he sent the girl a video of himself staring into the computer with an 'oh-I-am-so-intense' expression, clenched jaw and all that jazz before suddenly breaking into a wide grin without warning. What follows is a slow-motion attempt to hide his blushes while looking away.
So how exactly did he become an internet sensation? Well, a friend of the girl in question posted the video on his Instagram after which a lot of people went ahead and did a "StarBucksDrake" act. Animals also joined in. Enjoy the videos below.
