Amelia Dimoldenberg has been courting prefer it’s her job. She began her “Hen Store Date” sequence as a college scholar, taking British rappers out to eat after which stonewalling them with a foolish questions and a straight face. Up to now two years, she’s taken her awkward appeal to the pink carpet, internet hosting interviews on the Brit Awards and the Golden Globes, the place she had very actual chemistry in a widely-viewed trade with Andrew Garfield(Opens in a brand new tab).
As an Amelia stan (a hen store chick? A nugget? Considered one of Amelia’s Bedelias? Nonetheless workshopping a fandom title…) I assumed it solely proper to level new followers within the route of a few of her finest poultry-focused work.
1. Chunkz and Yung Filly
I might by no means heard of Chunkz or Yung Filly earlier than watching their Hen Store Date and now I will always remember them. Between explaining the that means of “bundas” and razzing Yung Filly’s raucous chuckle, the duos’ date is one among Dimoldenberg’s most-watched for a purpose.
2. Jack Harlow
Harlow and Dimoldenberg have actual chemistry, although from what I’ve seen of Harlow on pink carpets, he might have chemistry with a brick wall. It is exhausting to not be charmed by his dangerous British accent and pure humor, and Harlow’s charisma comes shut to creating Dimoldenberg break character.
3. Louis Theroux
This iconic video could have birthed the highest TikTok sound of 2022 — the tune “My cash do not jiggle, jiggle” — however Dimoldenberg and Theroux’s sit down is one among her deepest meals thus far. Theroux is nearly too earnest for Amelia, making a vibe that is extra healthful than romantic.
4. Keke Palmer
Keke Palmer might narrate paint drying and be entertaining, so pairing her up with Dimoldenberg is a sure-fire win. They really feel extra like besties than baes however the love remains to be palpable.
Regardless of their date going lower than swimmingly (it is exhausting to return again from telling somebody they resemble a prawn), Amelia and rapper Aitch will need to have had chemistry outdoors of the hen store as a result of they ended up courting IRL. Amelia appeared in his music video for “Child(Opens in a brand new tab)” and, although it was most likely a PR stunt, we are able to all the time hope the love was actual. The pair has since damaged up, however stay pleasant. When “Child” was nominated for tune of the 12 months on the 2023 Brit Awards, Amelia congratulated Aitch on the pink carpet with a field of things(Opens in a brand new tab) he had left at her place.
6. Nella Rose
Nella Rose, the bubbly YouTuber behind the viral “Are you not ashamed of your self, are you not embarrassed?”(Opens in a brand new tab) meme brings out Amelia’s finest bodily comedy. The 2 dance, giggle, and stumble over their phrases on this really pleasant match up.
One of many high feedback on this video is “I really like how she will get robust males [to] giggle like college boys, it is hilarious” and that just about sums up Dimoldenberg’s tete-a-tete with rapper Dutchavelli.
8. Daniel Kaluuya
Daniel Kaluuya walks into the hen store able to get his flirt on. He makes eyes at Dimoldenberg however deflects her questions on having time for a girlfriend, taking part in exhausting to get. The alerts are combined, however the chemistry is unquestionably there.
Bonus: Jesse Lingard and Bernardo Silva
Though not technically a hen store date (it takes place in a stadium cafeteria), this double header contrasts a softspoken and generally confused Bernardo Silva with the extra outgoing Jesse Lingard. It is one among Dimoldenberg’s finest makes an attempt at scoring a boo.
