Anyone who’s ever tried to pick up a sexy someone at the bar knows a little “liquid courage” can help wash away jittery nerves. But the guys behind the YouTube channel Simple Pickup decided to take things a thousand step further by attempting to pick up girls while on psychedelic mushrooms.

As you might guess, things don’t go quite as smoothly for our friends on their trip through the streets of Amsterdam. When they aren’t being distracted by trashcans, posters, or even their own reflections, they occasionally try—and hilariously fail—their mission to pick up women.

Sadly, the closest thing either of them get to a pickup line is, “Where… where can I get a bike?” It just goes downhill from there.
