Blink-182 & Linkin Park Become 'Blinkin Park' in 'Funny or Die' First Date Video: Watch
Blink-182 are renowned for yukking it up on stage about farts and other fourth grade topics. But they're older now and on-stage potty humor from dudes their age could be mistaken for mere dad jokes, so it was time they got serious.
Okay, who are we kidding? The boys are back and they've teamed up with Linkin Park and Funny or Die for a totally not helpful first date advice video for "A First Date with Blink 182 & Linkin Park."
The premise is pretty simple: a guy and a girl are at a diner on an awkward first Tinder date... only Blinkin Park are there to help them say all the right things! Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda remind Stephanie that she doesn't just have a "stupid" job, but is a "motherf---ing associate VP... [and] don't be sorry, be certain!"
And when Trevor complains that he's unemployed because of "the system," Blink's Mark Hoppus offers the super useful advice: "You won't say 'I kissed 'em' after you rail against the system."
Watch below to find out how the date ends:
