A man who has little personality and relatively low intelligence believes he has developed a way to make him sound deep and interesting, by talking slowly.
The man named Dave Smith but who insists on being called Talako, says prior to the slow talking, women appeared disinterested in what he was saying. He states now he talks slowly, pausing to look into the sky and nodding intermittently, his sex life has increased dramatically.
Since leaving his job in telesales, Talako has learned to play the guitar and now carries firelighters and matches where ever he goes, in the hope of having an impromptu camp fire. Talako claims his rendition of “everybody hurts” has had women crying before jumping into a sleeping bag with him.
Asked about the permanence of his relationships and sexual encounters, he said: “I tend to move around, so many women, ya know?”
We have to pause the interview whilst Talako thoughtfully looks at the sky, nodding his head, smiling and puts his left hand to his heart, whispering “you know” before looking us dead in the eyes, with tears in his. “you get it right?”. This interaction took over five minutes.
