Pickup Footage Breakdown: What Day Game Really Looks Like
Day game is something that is extremely foreign to a large body of people. It’s an exceedingly rare thing to see a man approach a random girl on the street simply to get to know her because he thought she was cute, which can cause a lot of guys to back off and move into more familiar territory such as night game.
However, as it’s been previously discussed, pursuing women only during the night can lead to a large imbalance in the type of women you’re meeting; you’re meeting girls who appear to be hot, rather than women who are hot.
What’s a man to do if he has no experience talking to random girls on the street?
Sure, you can throw him out there and let him take tactics from paper and try to translate them to real life, but having a successful model to emulate will carry you that much further and accelerate your learning curve that much faster.
And this is why we’ve come together to develop a series that takes some of the best video footage from the world of pickup in order convey our message more clearly; not only are you going to read about these topics, you’re going to see them in action.
Just like I’d analyze a field report on the discussion boards, I am going to take these videos and display them while providing my own commentary below with specific references to different parts of the video.
You’ll get to look in-depth at someone who either consciously or subconsciously does things that work with women – all with some commentary from me that will lift the veil on everything that appears to just magically work.
First up to discuss is a short, sweet interaction demonstrating how easy things are once you’ve got your fundamentals running and can come off as an attractive, high-value guy.
Sasha (Sasha Daygame)
Sasha begins the interaction by paying her a compliment, which she had a pretty neutral reaction to.
However, you can tell that she most certainly was interested in talking to him, as she pulled his arm back into the conversation when he feigned leaving, which instantly got her investing in the conversation.
He follows up the compliment quite rapidly by making use of his quick wit with a joke. Putting a woman at ease during a conversation is absolutely vital to any interaction; if she’s not comfortable, she isn’t going to invest in you, because you are a stranger in her eyes.
Being quick-witted is something that a lot of guys claim does not come naturally to them. When nervous guys put themselves up in front of a girl, they’ll often try to make use of an entertainment type humor rather than humor that relates to her and puts her at ease.
This is why at 0:23 Sasha does not make some offhanded comment, try to deep dive her, or share a story – she still has to buy into the interaction before anything even starts to flourish. And, naturally, the first thing that comes to him is to simply talk about their interaction and go a bit over the top in explaining that he’s not a robber… he’s actually a lot like her.
And that relation went quite far, as she was quite interested in him. She begins investing in the conversation and they lock into a conversation getting to know each other.
At this point, it’s game on for deep diving.
The primary tool for keeping a deep dive going strong is to ensure that you always stay on track by talking about interesting topics.
One tool for doing just this that Sasha uses in his interaction but a lot of guys lack: thread-cutting.
Thread-cutting works by moving off of conversations you’d rather not talk about. Most guys latch onto topics and run with them until they are tired out, but a master of the deep dive knows to cut off topics that are likely to be uneventful.
Sasha uses this technique at 1:00 – he first starts talking about what she is doing today, but realizes that there is untapped potential for setting a sexual frame by calling her the sexy secretary.
As the interaction moves on, it hits quite an interesting point – she asks him for his Facebook, which is a huge sign of interest.
And Sasha goes straight into qualifying her.
He set this frame now and it is evident throughout the rest of the interaction. They aren’t just going to be people that are casually acquainted through Facebook; instead, he lets her know that she has to put in work and invest in him. She does, and he reinforces those qualifications and closes on his own terms by insisting on a coffee or tea date.
Ending things on your own terms not only shows that you’ve lead the interaction, but it shows that you’ve properly built up compliance from her. And this is as smooth as it gets.

Chris (Good Looking Loser)
I really like the way that Chris opened this girl. It’s a similar style to what I enjoy using, simply because it’s so effective at getting her attention before you say anything meaningful.
Chris first gets her attention by making eye contact with her at 1:20 and giving her a solid but confident “Hey, how are you?” She brushes it off at first, not knowing if he meant to talk to her, but she reestablishes eye contact and is clearly drawn in and attracted by him, which means the interaction is set to move forward.
Once he’s properly gotten her attention, he then pays her a compliment and is very straightforward in saying that he wants to get to know her.
Chris launches right into building compliance, which, as we know, comes in steps. He already knows that he wants to move her to his car in order to escape the summer heat, but that requires having her invest and comply in smaller things first, such as him telling her to repeat her name twice before initiating a deep dive.
As we discussed earlier, one part of deep diving includes directing the thread to certain topics. Another big point is to relate back to what she is saying in order to form a closer connection.
Typically the exchanging of where you’re from causes a barrier, because you may not know exactly where they are from. But Chris is able to show that he does in fact know where she’s from, and brings up a powerful role model in her life by doing so.
The interaction is at a high right now, and the connection is hot, so Chris takes this moment to take her to his car by being persistent and moving past her token resistance.
He goes off on a bit of a tangent around the 5:55 mark, but brings it back by playing it off and introducing a sexual dynamic at 7:10 by complimenting her on her legs and feeling them. This is something that Chris does often throughout the video: he recovers by cutting any threads and getting her to comply to something or launching into a sexual dynamic, which primes her for another one.
Chris follows it up by getting her age (which should definitely be a part of talking to younger women) and asking her to guess his. It’s quite funny how he plays off the age difference between a 30 year old and an 18 year old. Typically, society views such an age difference as weird, and they acknowledge this, but also make it sound okay by acknowledging it’s a purely spontaneous, sexual setup at the moment.
Fast forward to around 15:57 where he decides to kiss her after she sarcastically calls him a little angel and you’ll notice that, if you have a conversation with a girl and a sexual dynamic is present, she’s going to be all for kissing you.
That’s probably the easiest way to explain whether or not she will be accepting of a kiss. If you can answer yes to the following questions:
- Has she complied throughout the interaction?
- Is she showing signs that she’s attracted?
- Is she cool?
Then you can kiss her. For some, kissing her and having her be accepting of it can cause relief to rush over them in an awesome way because they realize that she is a sexual woman who is accepting of your advances. Plus, it’s outright fun to kiss an attractive girl that you’ve just met.

Willy (Willy Beck)
Be warned: this last interaction shows a lot of footage; nearly a half hour. But for anyone looking for a simple conversation and direct opener that turns into more, this one is definitely a video to look at.
One thing to notice about Willy is that he stays very cool, calm, and composed throughout the interaction. He isn’t jumping through any hoops or doing anything out of the ordinary – it just all looks natural, which is something that every guy wishes to emulate.
In fact, Willy does a lot of silly stuff in his interactions – he’s just out there having fun and knows the steps to get a woman home with him. See 3:44 for a spontaneous dance that’s just for fun and loosening any tension.
When things are going this well and it’s near the sunset, which is the ideal time of day for a pick-up, a quick date logistically feels like the most natural thing that you could do.
Unlike the previous two seductions, this one is in for the long haul, so you’ll notice that the steps of the interaction are much more spaced. They get moving, go on a date, and really have a good amount of time to get to know each other. When you have no time constraints there’s absolutely no need to rush the night.
When they settle down for coffee at 4:23, you’ll notice that Willy does not do a lot of the talking in the conversation that unfolds. When he deep dives her on an undesirable job (retail), he establishes a connection and locks into learning about her and allowing her to share herself.
After sharing that connection, he relates to her at 6:55 by sharing what his worst job was.
Noticing a pattern here?
Deep diving is often thought of as this big topic that is all about getting to know a girl. Oftentimes beginners (and even more advanced men) will run into the problem of simply not relating to a girl, making all that information that she’s just shared with you almost useless. If you do not relate back to the point and make her feel more at ease with you, the connection is not going to be established. Therefore, make it a rule of thumb to always relate back in a way that makes her feel understood.
The next big point in the date is where he grabs her number; and it’s not when you’d expect him to do it. At 19:55 he grabs her number, and this is during the middle of the date.
When you’re running an instant date like this, it’s always a great idea to get her number in the middle of the interaction rather than at the end. And, as you can tell, she’s pretty happy that he’s asking for her number, as opposed to the typically quizzical faces that women get as you ask for it.
This all boils back to making her want it before you go for it. Most women on the street aren’t keen on giving their phone number to some guy they just met. But after a few rounds of compliance and getting to know each other, relief will wash over her as she realizes that you like her enough to ask for her number.
After the continued sexual tension from playing around with each other’s hands and arms builds into a nice peak, she’s pretty breath-taken. However, she still manages to get out a few yes’s to get them back at her place to seal the deal.

Wrap-up: Ongoing Series and Suggestions
As you can tell, pick-up doesn’t appear to be so hard when I’m showing guys who manage to do everything perfectly during the day. If I had to boil these kinds of interactions down into the biggest points that these guys nailed to make the interaction come off as a success, it’d come down to these three points:
Both the guy and the girl were attracted to each other.
Each of them deep dove the girl about her life, directed the conversation, and related back to her.
They all used touch and knew how to close out the interaction with her.
Moving forward, I’m going to include some more pick-up video breakdown articles that highlight where guys have messed up an interaction, as well as include a wide variety of topics and lessons to be learned from looking at what guys do in-field so that we can all learn from them.
This type of article is a blast to write because it not only discusses in the ins and outs of a tactic, but it also takes previously discussed tactics and shows you what they look like in the real world.
You can look forward to an article discussing night game in the next incantation. Also, feel free to suggest in-field footage that you’d like to see me break down. As soon as we do our best to make sure that the content is legit, I’ll break it down and offer a new lesson every time.
