As much as we might like to pretend otherwise, the profile picture is easily the most important part of an online dating profile. It’s nice to read a Tinder profile and see that someone donates half their money to charity and spends their free time developing clean fusion energy technology or whatever, but if their picture is no good, no dice. To the shallow go the spoils in this unforgiving game. If you’re frustrated by the task of finding the perfect pic, you’ll relate to this College Humor sketch.
The video imagines a service that takes all of the cliched pictures you see on dating apps.

We recommend a picture with a dog. Everyone seems to like those.
