RSVP: 'Pull your finger out' and quit the Tinder swipe

Internet dating site RSVP has taken a swipe at the popular mobile app Tinder telling those looking for love to “pull your finger out” and to stop letting their thumb decide.

The MercerBell created campaign “targets 20-something daters who aren’t quite ready for the white picket fence but want more than a casual hook-up”.

The ad’s “don’t let your thumb decide” quip is directed at the Tinder application which lets users swipe-right to indicate an interest or left to turn them down, with the judging process predominantly based on looks.

Melanie Dudgeon, RSVP’s marketing director, said the audience RSVP are targeting are looking for fun.

“But they also want attraction that’s more than skin deep, attraction that’s based on more than a photo and a split-second ‘hot or not’ decision. And that’s where the mobile app from RSVP can help.

“We wanted an ad that expressed to daters the benefits of using Australia’s No.1 Dating Site on their mobile. And MercerBell captured this perfectly: more fun!”

The new campaign will run across pre-roll video and national TV with separate executions for each channel. ‘Pull your finger out’ will run exclusively as pre-roll video spots.

MercerBell executive creative director David Bell said: “These executions capture a little bit of zeitgeist in order to convince people that you can have the best of both worlds when you date through RSVP.”

A separate execution titled ‘Kiss Someone Everyday’ is scheduled to run on national TV and is a fun, feel-good 15 second spot showing people taking selfies on their mobile phones while blowing kisses.
