A parody video of dating site Christian Mingle centerd on same-sex dating goes viral

Do you love ‘pleated front khakis, chitchat after church and dancing in the kitchen’? If so, maybe you should try Christian Mingle to find the love of your life.

Sounds ridiculous? Admittedly it's all based on a new parody commercial for the real-life religious dating website. And in this version, the couples who get together are all gay.

In fact, they ‘love dancing in the kitchen, probably because it’s so normal.’

Cue a delightfully camp montage of the couple waltzing, complete with dog in their arms.
