Recently, The Simpsons have earned a curious(yellow) spot in pop culture. No, I don't mean Disney+, but more on them later. Over the last few years, people have started to view The Simpsons as the modern-day Nostradamus. Thanks to a few cleverly written and oddly prescient jokes, the phrase "Simpsons did it" has evolved into "Simpsons predicted it." However, for this particular story, I think Futurama might have gotten there first.
In the episode Fishful of Dollars from Futurama's first season, Fry has an advertisement beamed directly into his dreams. I'm sure in the distant year of 2000, that may have been a joke, but in 2022, if Disney has their way, your dreams might become an ad-supported tier for the streaming service. To promote their new She-Hulk show, Disney has created a Tinder profile for the titular Jade bombshell. On the one hand, it's a brilliant marketing idea. At the same time, it's awfully creepy for Disney + to advertise a superhero show on an app designed to trivialize human relationships.
Actually, no, wait, that sounds about right. Carry on, everyone.
Throughout the many trailers and promos for Marvel's She-Hulk, two things have been made clear: Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) is a lawyer suddenly tasked with handling superhuman-related cases, and she's not terribly good at having a dating life. San Diego Comic-Con say the attorney-at-law open a hotline for those in need, and now she's got herself her very own Tinder profile.
If you've got Tinder, then there's a chance that her profile may pop up in your list of potential partners. Lest you get too excited at thinking there'd be someone to DM, the profile will just straight up tell you this is an ad for the show, complete with stock images of Jen that you've seen in the months up to release. And should you match, you can't actually respond to them. It's a shame that the bit is only surface level and the profile isn't used to convey any personality for Jen, but it's still a clever way to draw eyes onto the show.https://gizmodo.com/marvel-she-hulk-tinder-profile-1849410702
