Tinder has launched a digital-first montage film celebrating how young India is redefining dating and creating moments of connection, chemistry, and serendipity in these unprecedented times.

Tinder’s campaign is a celebration of how members have not let the pandemic define what dating, flirting and social discovery means to them. They set their own pace and make their own rules about love, dating, life and everything in between.

The video:

Inspired by real member stories and Tinder’s diverse community, the music video explores what dating and flirting look like today—from making a mundane outdoor hopscotch date memorable, improvising the lack of a public swimming pool, making the effort for a virtual dance party much, to exploring the city on cycles. The film showcases the optimism of these moments; the unexpected joys and the idea of possibility in times of physical distancing.

Taru Kapoor, GM-India, Tinder and Match group, said, “The pandemic has significantly diminished opportunities of chance encounters and interactions from our lives, especially for our young members. But human connection endures, unconstrained from rules of physical distance and barriers (both social and physical) and we continue to be inspired by our community. Our members have creatively co-created and figured out new rules of the meeting, hanging out and falling in love. None of this is surprising, Gen Z has always set their own pace, created their own rules and thrived despite constraints and Covid has only accelerated this ingenuity—this is the spirit we are championing and celebrating.”

The film was created and conceptualised by BBH India, directed by Jess Kohl with an original soundtrack composed by music director Mikey McCleary with vocals by Indian-American rapper, singer, songwriter and dancer Raja Kumari.

“In creating a music video for Tinder, it is the Tinder community who came up with the ‘creatives’ — the many ways of dating. All we had to do was to reflect and celebrate them. ‘In our own way’ is a refrain that champions their spirit — from choosing who to be with to setting their own pace to meet-ups at places, which may not have seen dates before,” said Vasudha Misra, Executive Creative Director, BBH Delhi.

The music video is an ode to the resilience and tenacity of the Tinder community. There are as many different ways to date as people who do it, and Tinder’s mission is to make space for all of them.
