Most actors don’t book Hollywood blockbusters as their first role. Before hitting it big, dues must be paid and they’re often in the form of catalogue modelling, small commercial parts, and in some cases, posing for a board game for young girls that has not aged well. Remember Mystery Date? One Twitter user does, and it looks like we all may have been fighting for a night at the bowling alley with Chris Evans. It’s sexist and outdated, but we feel better knowing it was him.

Twitter user and author Dana Schwartz found an old image of Mystery Date, because this game is very non-PC and therefore all the images are old, and noticed that one date looked awfully familiar. You may know him as Steve Rogers, or Captain America. Maybe you first fell for him in films like Not Another Teen Movie or The Fantastic Four. It’s possible you’re a fan of his activism or his real-life role as decent human being. But did you know that Chris Evans was once Tyler, the surfing teen from Mystery Date?

In case you never played Mystery Date, or if you’ve blocked it like all the other childhood memories that did a number on your self-esteem, it was a game that first came out in the mid-1960s and encouraged young girls to find three matching cards in order to put together their outfit that would match a young man and the type of date they were going on. You know, because women need to change for men, blah blah, it was the 60s. The sleepover staple was revamped a few more times, including a version that included an “electronic talking phone” (lolz) in the 1990s. And that’s where we meet Tyler, who looks an awful lot like Chris Evans. Like, a lot.

In case you’re not convinced that Tyler is Chris, here’s a video of one eagle-eyed reporter confronting Evans about his past life as a surfer who loves to talk on the phone. Oh yeah, it’s him.

 

Thankfully, Evans knows how much we love seeing his younger, less woke-looking self, which inspired him to recently share several of his early headshots.

There was dickhead Chris.

Then no-sleeves Chris.

And finally, velour tracksuit Chris. We think Tyler would have liked this look the best. Time to meme-it.
