A SELF-PROCLAIMED ‘pick-up artist,’ who is filmed secretly chatting up women on Glasgow streets with tips on how to “f*** girls in alleyways” has been banned from one of the city’s nightclubs.
The ban, imposed by Kokomo nightclub, comes after Addy ‘A-Game’, who runs YouTube channel and website DWLF Game and his ‘creepy’ videos were exposed on social media and condemned by Glasgow councillors online.
In one of the videos, Addy is secretly filmed by an accomplice asking one unsuspecting woman if she is getting “p***** tonight” and urges her to meet him later at Kokomo nightclub in Glasgow city centre.
Glasgow councillor Rhiannon Spear tweeted this morning, “UPDATE: @kokomoglasgow have been in touch again to say these men are banned indefinitely from both their venues.
“They are also sharing this information with the club manager networks throughout Glasgow.
“They hold firm this type of behaviour will not be tolerated.”
Addye frequently uploads videos of himself following and targeting women on Glasgow’s streets. He also records his sexual exploits and puts the audio online.
He has even filmed and put online footage of women sleeping after he has spent the night with them.
In videos, he refers to women as “infields” and gives men advice on what to do when a woman refuses his advances. He discusses how a girl will “welcome it” if a guy returns to speak to her after initially turning him down.
He says: “Any situation that gets thrown at you, you turn it to your advantage.
“Remember, you’re the guy and this is your f***ing game and she follows you. You lead.”
One of Addy’s videos, entitled “How to f*** girls in alleyways and public toilets + 3 infields, shows the website host approaching many different women on Glasgow’s Buchanan and Sauchiehall Streets trying to get their phone numbers.
Addy’s site and YouTube channel promise men they will “master their masculine qualities” and offers 1-to-1 coaching and tips on how to “ineract with hot girls.”
It adds: “Learn how to approach, talk, text, date and have sex with beautiful women. Be the chooser, not the chosen.”
The videos also show that there are a ring of seven men involved in the DWLF videos and website, operating under ‘Game’ names, like ‘Sheer Determination’ and ‘Long Game’. Each offer different tips on ways to “get” women.
Online platform BBC social produced an investigation on Addy after a call exposing the practices was made to BBC Radio Scotland show, Mornings with Kaye Adams.
He later told the BBC that “game” is the art of attracting “quality women,” but that “quality women” were hard to come by in Scotland.
He said: “I wouldn’t recommend it [game] in Scotland. Unless someone really likes a particular type of female.”
Many have since taken to social media to relay their disgust over A-Game’s exploits.
Councillor Elena Whitham also took to Twitter to reveal her take on the videos.
She said: “This is horrifying. We cannot allow the narrative that this is acceptable, normal dating behaviour to continue.
“This is rape culture and misogyny personified.”
A message from a male colleague of Addy that has been shared on Twitter also tells of a conversation the pair had in which Addy stated, “women are biologically conditioned to submit to men.”
Members of the public have also taken to Twitter to share their revulsion.
Another message this morning.
This time from a male colleague of this man.
Addy is monetising rape culture and encouraging other men to act the same way.

Twitter account @LemonTree said: “WTAF. I know from experience that individual men have this predatory attitude, but to see a ‘coaching’ session, a YouTube channel, an organised grp, a cult following, makes me feel sick.”
Rhiannon Spear has also tweeted to Buchanan Galleries and St Enoch Centre as well as Kokomo nightclub to alert them to the videos.
Buchanan Galleries have responded saying they will alert their security teams.
St Enoch Centre also replied saying: “Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
“We’ll ensure security and the wider Centre team are briefed on this matter.”
Addy defended his behaviour in the BBC report, saying: “The client base wants evidence of results as there are a lot of con men in the community.
“I don’t feel the game will ever go mainstream.
“It’s not for the politically correct.”
