No. I’ve not completely lost my grip on reality in the face of the surreal horrors coming daily out of D.C. Last night, a friend clued me in to a curious promotional tool for Fifty Shades Darker that allows you to sext with “Christian Grey.” Okay, so he’s a bot. But considering Jamie Dornan’s stiff performance in the Fifty Shade series, that seems pretty appropriate.
It started simply enough. But things turned awkward pretty quickly. Like many guys on the web, Grey is only thinking of one thing. Meanwhile, I had fun with the fact Dornan refused to take his jeans off in Fifty Shades of Grey, even when Dakota Johnson had boldly gone full muffy.
The link, which activated a few moments later, turned out to be my profile picture. Smooth. Still, I was underwhelmed by our first Tete-a-text. Grey Bot hadn’t texted back. So, I tried again this morning.
