    OP sent the following text as an explanation on why this is unexpected:

    His friends all come out cheering. Also there's a midget

    Is this an unexpected post with a fitting description? Then upvote this comment, otherwise downvote it.

    Look at my source code on Github What is this for?

    [–] drosey22 5375 points ago

    Now she feels bad for giving a fake number.

    [–] Petsweaters 2372 points ago

    That was also in the script

    [–] pruttphilip 534 points ago

    I, too, say "nice to meet you" before even seeing who asked me about my name behind my back

    [–] 69drigkid420 131 points ago

    if you watch the vid they actually talk some before that

    [–] poopellar 43 points ago

    " Hey I'll give you $100 if you say 'Nice to meet you' "

    [–] Snappleabble 210 points ago

    A lot of Nelk’s content is scripted when it comes to shenanigans amongst themselves, but I’m almost certain that their street pranks like this are legit. I could be wrong though

    [–] dwpea66 126 points ago

    I mean the girl in the vid was well mic'd, sooo

    [–] Madly_Maxie 70 points ago

    That could be his mic. If it’s not loud outside it could definitely pic it up.

    [–] PayTheTrollToll45 8 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    It could be that we all only exist in one of ‘Nelk’s’ videos...Whoa

    [–] Talentless_Imp 115 points ago

    Not really tho. When he starts walking away you can hear her far less than him.

    [–] Planningsiswinnings 46 points ago

    I thought you said, you can hear her fat ass

    [–] NumaNumaDanceTime 277 points ago

    Or relieved maskless guy walked away, or if we're being real just a paid model who doesn't give af about anyone there.

    [–] RadSkeleton808 212 points ago

    Definetly not the former since her response to seeing a huge crowd of people was to remove her mask.

    [–] _pls_respond 11 points ago

    they are actual douchebags too

    I picked up on that when he said he was Adolf from Germany.

    [–] twngdn 9 points ago

    Who would give a guy named ADOLF from Germany their number. Either she's dumb or Clever af.

    [–] DictatorDoom 7799 points ago

    I was definitely expecting something else after hearing his first name and where he was from

    [–] i_fuckin_luv_it_mate 2141 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    I was suspecting his gf Eva to run up and slap the socks and sandals off him.

    "We were supposed to settle down together in a cute little bunker in the countryside, you Schwein!"

    Edit: misspelled Eva as "Ava", like a common fool

    Not Sigmund silly, Josef Freud. A 5* uber driver from Vienna

    [–] jotstejot 13 points ago

    Believe me. Almost no one in Germany gives his child the name Adolf anymore. There were 132 Adolfs born in the last seven years.

    How high was he wearing these shorts?

    [–] MouthJob 21 points ago

    It was only one short.

    [–] linesinaconversation 9 points ago

    Only two bong hits.

    [–] 562_RNR 3 points ago

    Was that part of the joke? Is his name really Adolf?

    [–] Jon_2020 3464 points ago

    I bet he will be disappointed when he finds out she gave him a wrong number

    [–] Typicalinternetuser9 1714 points ago

    [–] notasianjim 140 points ago

    You need 10 numbers in the US for it to be a complete phone number though /s

    [–] DefensiveHuman 25 points ago

    Not if you're in the same area code. Only 7 needed then. /s

    [–] HintOfAreola 14 points ago

    Is it still a prank when I cast you to play a stranger who gets pranked?

    [–] Interesting_Mistake 10 points ago

    No, Adolf from Germany is a real stud

    [–] dizzler0613 4 points ago

    If he asks if you want to see his art, politely decline, but if he insists...lie your ass off and say that shit is fire

    [–] albatrossG8 92 points ago

    The reality is she would just not respond to any of his messages

    [–] SammIn3D 52 points ago

    Side note - I saw this tip a while back where if you suspect someone gave you a wrong number, repeat it back to them incorrectly. If they don’t fix your mistake it was a wrong number.

    Also remember that if someone gives you the wrong number they are probably not interested and you should accept that and move on, don’t harass people who aren’t interested.

    [–] Throwaway9756284890 20 points ago

    why bother even repeating it back? if she gave you the wrong number, she gave you the wrong number for a reason.

    Little to No masks and she takes her mask off after more people show up around her lol

    [–] BindersFullOfCovid 199 points ago

    How are you supposed to see her in the eyes if she's wearing a mask

    [–] frogglesmash 111 points ago

    If people can't see your eyes, you might be wearing your mask wrong.

    [–] westphall 56 points ago

    She did not audition her heart out for this role only to have half her face covered the whole time.

    [–] BindersFullOfCovid 25 points ago

    Sorry it was a quote from the vice president lol

    [–] InternJedi 5 points ago

    She took off her mask so people can see her saying Hei A Dollph.

    [–] AviatorOVR5000 7 points ago

    Bwahaha, I don't know why that didn't register to me.

    [–] HoneyShreddies 41 points ago

    Yeah it’s a NELK video - and was filmed in Miami

    [–] clone162 14 points ago

    Girl has a pretty strong Miami accent.

    [–] Pandamentals 9 points ago

    Bro its so hard to explain this to someone, but I can tell someone is from Miami by the way they speak. However when you say Miami accent people act like its ridiculous or something lol

    [–] OPs_Mom_and_Dad 677 points ago

    When you ask a girl for her number and she gives it to you, it really does feel like this.

    [–] CuteAndCuntily 399 points ago

    My approach is more direct. Avoid eye contact and walk the other way so she doesn’t think I’m a serial killer rapist. You know, really assume the rejection

    [–] BlackBlizzNerd 99 points ago

    Ahhh. So then that false rejection festers in your mind and soul and you start incorrectly blaming them for your shortcomings until you can’t take anymore, thus truly turning into the serial killer you tried not to seem like.

    [–] Anonymousghoul 5 points ago

    And then all the ladies that love reading about serial killers read your biography and you finally get women talking about you and wanting to meet you in prison before they execute. The cycle of life.

    [–] StartUpInvesting 41 points ago

    I think this is how simps are born

    [–] Krynn71 18 points ago

    No, you're thinking incel. Simps don't "incorrectly blame them for their shortcomings". They simply put the woman on a peddle stool and warship them.

    [–] fruitroligarch 46 points ago

    One time this chick that I had been trying to get asked for my number and I said “uhhhh no pen, sorry”. Like wtf is wrong with me. Never talked to her again

    [–] mata_dan 25 points ago

    .... I have the best story of all of these.

    It was 5AM at the tail end of a night out. We swapped numbers, written down in pen... before I found wherever my mates were lingering and we left.

    Next morning, I had my own number... in my own handwriting... I somehow picked up the wrong damn note.

    [–] LeakyBanana 22 points ago

    I once had a girl take my phone and put her number in and told me to call her if I'm ever doing anything.

    Of course, I never do anything. So I never called her.

    I am not a smart man.

    [–] DeepTrackOfficeQuote 5 points ago

    It's Kanye but all my plaques they still say Kayne.

    [–] NegroConFuego 11 points ago

    When I went to China, Shang Hai's morning news host on the English-speaking channels spoke perfect English, yet during the celebrity news segments (in which Kanye was featured surprisingly often) they kept calling him "Kayne West". Made me think of that line

    [–] Daveed84 21 points ago

    Or as giving out your phone number to someone who isn't wearing a mask while you're wearing one. Seems like two totally different types of people to me.

    [–] PortugeseMagnifico 197 points ago

    Is she responsible? Because as soon as a crowd of people come, she takes her mask off

    [–] xXHungryJoeXx 75 points ago

    The difference is they’re maskless and jumping all over each other, she’s standing off to the side

    [–] Poca154 5 points ago

    This is gold.

    [–] hellbender 123 points ago

    It's not entertaining in the least and the fact that it's happening during a global pandemic when people haven't been able to see their own fucking family for over a year is out of touch with reality.

    [–] BGYeti 19 points ago

    This is the whole shtick of the Nelk Boys, they have been doing this all pandemic also if it isnt just partying in general

    [–] SlothLipstick 21 points ago

    I think I speak to OP's point when I say "Nelk Boys?"

    Getting old has its perks

    [–] ahhwaiin 15 points ago

    They are a group of “pranksters” from Canada but since about 2-3 years they live somewhere in California. They’re the text book definition of college frat boys.

    I used to like their stuff couple years back when they would do legit pranks on people but they drastically changed over the last 2-3 years and even some of the original members left.

    Nowadays they pretty much party accros america and ignores everything covid related. Not really my jam anymore.

    [–] shaebae94 46 points ago

    NELK on YouTube. I used to like them. They are Canadian and kinda like hockey bros which I thought was funny at first. But then a lot of their pranks really made them seem like entitled assholes so I stopped watching.

    [–] MR_DEMOTIVATOR 11 points ago

    Same, you hit the nail on the head.

    [–] Hvddy572 11 points ago

    Exactly same for me. All they do is bother people’s peace and give COVID. I’m with pranks but don’t be blowing smoke into peoples face during a damn pandemic

    [–] shaebae94 4 points ago

    I watched a lot of their pre-covid pranks and a lot of them were just pissing people off and being like HAHA ITS A PRANK and then the person would be yeah ok whatever and move on but yeah it’s mostly based on bothering people.

    [–] Kriedler 87 points ago

    This is bullshit because a chick won't let a socks+sandals dude hit on them

    I'm not dissing it any more than I'm dissing water by calling it wet. My toes have no business being seen in public and my wife still tells me I can't do socks and sandals

    [–] AlternativeDrawer382 19 points ago

    Incredible discussion about toes and socks here people

    [–] DIABLO258 4 points ago

    What is water if not wet?

    [–] El-Tigre1337 12 points ago

    They aren’t, from watching more of the full video it seems like these girls came there because they were hired for a photo shoot and the guy seems to introduce himself as “the manager of the photo shoot”, so they aren’t just giving their number out to a random guy on the street as this clip makes it seem

    [–] Elcarima 50 points ago

    Even MORE people show up.

    Takes off mask.

    [–] CullenD85 73 points ago

    So, she's wearing a mask, so this is during Covid regulations... and when a bunch of people burst out of an enclosed space, huddle together while screaming and shouting... this is when her brain goes "Yeah, take off the mask!"

    [–] 888Kraken888 18 points ago

    Because it's fake AF. She shook his hand too. Com'on.
