Dave and Mike Stangle thought nothing of it when they boozily decided to turn to the "activity partners" section of Craigslist to solicit dates to their cousin's wedding. The hilarious, out-of-this-world ad that they came up with immediately went viral, featured on Gawker, New York Magazine, Daily News, Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, and Refinery29. Dave and Mike were also invited to appear on the Today Show with Matt Lauer (where Mike promptly got drunk at 9AM and forgot the name for "Florida"). The ad itself boasts a picture of the two brothers as centaurs and claims that they are, "single, dashingly tall, Anglo-Saxon, respectfully athletic, love to party, completely house trained, boast great tie collections, have seen Love Actually several times, controversial, provocative, short-sighted (with a big picture mentality), raw, sensitive, but still bad boys." They ask that their prospective dates should be "attractive or our aunts will judge you, but not TOO attractive or one of our uncles might grope you."
In MIKE AND DAVE NEED WEDDING DATES, the Stangle brothers will bring their trademark, off-color humor to everything from their most embarassing adolescent experiences (like getting beat up by a girl on their front lawn... in front of their dad), to being chased through the wilds of Cape Cod by the father of the girl on the back of their puttering moped, to the proper etiquette for sexting culture, and finally to breaking up a midget bar fight (you have to shoo them away). Mike and Dave have the incredible comedic chemistry of Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson in Wedding Crashers, and rule firmly, yet kindly over their bro-dom, insisting there's nothing wrong with just seeing where life takes them.
