You’ve heard about Jewish moms hijacking their kids’ JDate accounts — but what about grandfathers taking one for the team on Tinder?
Jewish Youtuber Ethan Cole wasn’t having much luck with the ladies. So he asked his 89-year-old zayde, Joe, for help. The plan? The pair would create a Tinder profile using a somewhat outdated picture of Joe, who would then take the lucky women out for a night on the town. Once things got weird — as they tend to do when an old guy shows up for your date — Ethan would swoop in and save the day.
