Who needs eHarmony? When Eva re-entered the dating pool in her late 60s, her son Alex Lyngaas pitched in behind her back with the ultimate endorsement—a video, filled with footage of the Norway native being her perfectly adorable self. Lyngaas shot it secretly over a year and uploaded the video to YouTube on Mother’s Day. After watching clips of the active septuagenarian doing a few of her favourite things—playing tennis, practicing yoga, going cross-country skiing (in the summer), hula-hooping, drinking beer—who wouldn’t fall in love with her?
The video starts and ends with Eva watching the video for the first time and, by the end, she’s nearly speechless. “Oh Alex, what do you want to do with this?” she asks. “I was thinking of putting it on the internet and hopefully people will spread it around and we will find you a good man,” he says.
And spread it around they have—the video has received a whopping 8 million views since it was posted on Mother’s Day. Lyngaas put the call out for suitable men to pitch themselves at ICouldBeAdam@gmail.com.
Do you know any good men who are active, adorable, available and willing to relocate to Norway? Hook Eva up!
