Sam Heughan is looking for some dating advice.
The “Outlander” star is asking kids to share their best tips for a romantic night date night he plans on taking one lucky fan on as part of an Omaze charity campaign, benefiting Heughan’s own My Peak Challenge.
“While I might know a thing or two about 18th-century romance, I thought I’d round up a few unconventional visionaries to ensure that our unforgettable evening together will be both modern and timeless,” the 38-year-old Scottish actor says in the video which sees him face a panel of kids.
“You could sing ‘Love, Love Me Do'” suggests one boy. “How does it go?” the actor innocently asks. “Do you know The Beatles from the olden times?” the youngster responds, before admitting he doesn’t actually know the song.
Heughan, who at times struggles to stifle his laughter, gets the best tips from the kids including what gift he should bring his date (gin), what not to say (“How you doin’?”) and what he should wear for the special occasion.
“Wear a leather jacket. Like Danny from ‘Grease’,” one girl suggests. “Do not wear leather shorts because when the leather shorts heats up, they go tighter and tighter and tighter,” another boy adds, while his friend agrees. “You can’t pull your shorts back up again.”
“Wait. Why are the shorts off?” an incredulous Heughan asks.
But Heughan isn’t just getting dating tips from the kids.
“You should probably go for a haircut,” a child tells him.
One lucky winner will get to see these dating tips in action during an unforgettable date to the My Peak Challenge gala in Scotland, which includes a whisky tasting and carriage ride with Heughan.
The prize also includes a training session with the actor’s personal trainer and a hike in the Scottish countryside. Founded by Heughan, My Peak Challenge is a global movement dedicated to educating and inspiring its members to live healthier, happier and more balanced lives while raising funds to change lives.
All donations through Omaze will go towards the organization’s two chosen charities Bloodwise and Marie Curie. Bloodwise works to beat blood cancer and support those living with it, while Marie Curie provides hands-on care to terminally ill patients and their families.
