An Alan Partridge fan may have landed himself a date by only using quotes from the Radio Norwich presenter.
Dan North began reciting words from the famous Steve Coogan character when asked on dating app Tinder what was his favourite Beatles album.
The 20-year-old ended up sending 23 messages quoting the iconic BBC comedy, before eventually coming clean.
Luckily the woman took the joke in good spirits, and the pair may still be going on a date.
Dan started channelling his inner Partridge when he was asked whether he liked the Beatles.
He replied: "My favourite Beatles album has to be 'The Best of the Beatles'."
His Tinder match clearly was not an Alan Partridge fan, as he followed this comment up with: "Wings are the only band the Beatles could have been though."
When asked about his music taste, he once again quoted the Coogan character.
Dan, of Stansted, Essex, said: "I've got a broad taste, from Britpop bands like Def Leppard and UB40, right back to classic rock as I mentioned previously like Wings."
This appeared to go down well with his would be date, who responded: "Oh nice I like it, usually everyone listens to s**t but your music taste is decent to be fair."
Now Coogan fan Dan was in his stride. He said: "A song I really like at the moment is 'Sunday Bloody Sunday'. What a great song. It really encapsulates the frustration of a Sunday, doesn't it?
"You wake up in the morning, you've got to read all the Sunday papers. The kids are running round, you've got to mow the law, wash the car and you just think: "Sunday, bloody Sunday!"
His match replied: "I mean my Sundays don't consist of that but I get it, might have to listen to it."
She later responded: "You come out with the most bizarre stuff, I love it."
This went on for several hours, before Dan eventually came clean. Luckily the woman took it in good humour and replied: "Hahaha, wow, well thanks for entertaining me then. It makes sense now."
It looks like Alan Partridge may have a new fan, thanks to Dan's unique flirting. Afterwards he said: "As soon as she messaged me saying 'Do you like the Beatles?'. I was like, let's see how far this goes.
"I thought it may have gone too far, after going on about 'my friend Dan being a fantastic man'. I did feel a bit sorry for her, but I'm glad she saw the funny side."
And Dan said a date could be on the cards.
"I wouldn't say no to dinner and watching some Alan Partridge after," he added.
