Haddish and Harrell To Bring Bumble Users to Los Angeles for ‘L.A. Our Way’
AUSTIN, TX (December 12, 2019) – Bumble, the women-first social networking app with over 75 million users worldwide, today released a brand-new video featuring EMMY-winning Actress and Comedian Tiffany Haddish and Montrezl Harrell of the L.A. Clippers, which takes viewers on a behind-the-scenes look at two Bumble first dates as Haddish and Harrell give their humorous dating advice on the fly.
In the “Play-By-Play” digital video, produced by ESPN CreativeWorks and airing on ESPN and Bumble social channels, Haddish and Harrell give real time feedback on two unsuspecting Bumble dates, including Haddish’s take on checking phones during first dates and Harrell’s support for women always making the first move. Haddish and Harrell separately surprise the couples mid-date with advice to better connect and the unsuspecting daters return with new tips to finish off the first date with success.
“Teaming up with Bumble and Montrezl for this video was so much fun - I wish someone would surprise me with advice on my dates! Bumble empowers women to make the first move, and I hope this video encourages women to do just that, while having fun along the way,” said Haddish.
Beginning today through December 31st, Bumble Date users can enter to win one of four specially curated days in Los Angeles, planned by Haddish, Harrell, L.A. Clippers game host and former NBA dancer Hannah Cormier, and global esports organization Gen.G’s ‘Team Bumble’, for the brand’s “L.A. Our Way” in-app experience.
“From adding the Empowerment Badge to our jerseys to working on this content piece, teaming up with Bumble has been amazing. I love everything Bumble stands for and had a blast working with Tiffany on this video,” said Harrell.
One of the activities on Harrell’s agenda includes customizing a piece of denim and a comedy show at one of L.A.’s top venues for Haddish’s curated day. Both ‘L.A. Our Way’ days end with a L.A. Clippers home game.
The content and in-app opportunity are part of Bumble’s multi-year global partnership with the L.A. Clippers for their Empowerment Badge and a play on the team’s current motto. Bumble’s partnership with Montrezl Harrell marks the brand’s first male professional athlete deal to date.

About Tiffany Haddish:
Tiffany Haddish is one of the most sought-after comedic actresses and performers with multiple high-profile projects and buzzworthy appearances to her name. She can currently be seen opposite Tracy Morgan on the TBS comedy series The Last O.G. and as host of Kids Say The Darndest Things on ABC. Her newest one-hour comedy special, Tiffany Haddish: Black Mitzvah, debuted on Netflix on December 3. She will also star opposite Salma Hayek and Rose Byrne in the film Like A Boss, which will be released in theaters on January 10. Haddish’s journey and life experiences have inspired her comedy and sense of humor both on and off the stage. While growing up in foster care in South Central Los Angeles, her excessive talking and imaginary friends prompted her increasingly flustered social worker to steer her into stand-up comedy by enrolling her in the Laugh Factory’s Comedy Camp, a place for at-risk and underprivileged children to transform negative energy into something positive. The experience was just the beginning of her comedy career.
