Erik von Markovik, also known as Mystery, is "famous" in the seduction community for his skills in picking up women. These practitioners of seduction, often called pickup artists, pride themselves on their ability to bag women using such cool tricks as "peacocking" (dressing like an asshole) and "kino" (touching women without their permission). But now there's a new term to add to the pickup artist glossary: Nickelbacking.
One of our readers had the unfortunate privilege of meeting Mystery last night at a club. After hitting on her all night, he then texted her this video:
[There was a video here]
According to the tipster, this is how their evening together unfolded:
Mystery and his wingman Matador both flanked me and threw a bunch of game. So I did all the PUA stuff like neg-ing, being alternately interested and then completely ignoring or jumping up mid convo to cut them off and change the song, kiss a friend hello, etc. Mystery asked for my number, I gave him my card, and he texted like 30 times. I wrote back a short response or two, and then he sent this video. I can't stop watching it. It's like next level Starbucks Drake hands.
To supplement the video, the tipster also sent along this copy of their text conversation as proof:
If references to Les Mis and watching grown men pantomime to Nickelback don't do it for you, surely the wink at the end of the video will. It's a wonder these two dudes left the club alone.
