World Travellers are more likely to be Swiped Right, it seems.
Just in case you don’t know, that’s a term from a dating app called Tinder, and it’s basically become shorthand for finding someone attractive.
Now a quirky airline campaign is giving people the chance to boost their appeal by suggesting they’ve been to more places than they have.The Delta Dating Wall in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, features nine huge murals depicting cities around the world.
The idea of course is that people pose in front of them for snaps and then post them to their social media accounts to appear more exotic - or at least to indicate that they have a sense of humour (well, the city scenes are clearly fake).
The destinations are Honolulu, Paris, Los Angeles, Pisa, London, Mexico City, Amsterdam, Moscow and Zurich.
The fun installation is a partnership between Tinder and Delta Air Lines, who wish to draw attention to their wide range of destinations. As some text on the wall adds: "Until you take the trip, we'll help you fake the trip."
The city pics are surrounded by illustrations, with tips for the perfect shot, such as "Don't pull a duckface."
We agree.
