If you’re looking to impress Dakota Johnson and Leslie Mann, the two things that (apparently) really do the job are fancy, whimsical dress socks and large biceps. Guess what doesn’t work so well? Pun-reliant pick-up lines.

While promoting their new comedy How to Be Single, Johnson and Mann hijack an interview for a much more entertaining pursuit: hitting on the reporter in front of them. “Are you single? You’re handsome,” Mann tells reporter Chris Van Vliet from WSVN in Miami. Johnson, for her part, adds, “You look like you have really big muscles.”

Watch the video to find out what the women think of the reporter’s cheesy pick-up lines. And definitely don’t borrow them for your own use — this is a cautionary tale.
