While Saturday Night Live hasn't always been consistently hilarious year after year, their way of delivering biting social commentary has never wavered. That's why this fake commercial for a dating app called Settl is just so perfect.
"Because, remember: it's not giving up, it's settling up," says a very unenthused Vanessa Bayer. Settl is the dating app for women who've given up and really just need to lock down before their sister's wedding. With the caveat of the inability to swipe left on men, Settl matches nice women with highly mediocre guys that'll simply do the job.
"Settl doesn't depict the worst-case dating scenario, but it's almost more chilling that way," as Bustle
suggests; this isn't really a sketch at all, but maybe the way men and women actually date nowadays. It's the app for people who've given up on dating, but try to name someone who's actually
really pumped to be on Tinder and ask yourself if every
app is for people who've given up on dating.
