<Update: Alas, the Rumblr app was too stupid to be true. It was a hoax created by a creative agency called von Hughes seeking to create a little Internet buzz.>

Eating. Hooking up. Fighting?

Now there’s an app for that.

Watching: Is the clubhouse app the next tinder?

Billing itself as the “Tinder for fighting,” a new app called Rumblr is prepping for its beta launch today.

What’s the purpose of this app? In Fight Club style, it will connect you to other “recreational” fighters nearby who want to … rumble.

The New York Daily News found the app, which is headquartered in NYC, and apparently its makers are 100 percent serious.

“We have raised relatively substantial funding from private American investors and the app is fully developed,” Rumblr told the Daily News via email.

Not only will users be able to meet their neighbors and pummel the living crap out of them, they can also broadcast the fights so others can watch, according to the website.

The app isn’t ready — yet — but according to the site, the Rumblrs say that “due to heavy demand, Rumblr will be released as a beta web application on app.getrumblr.com.”

The New York Daily News also reported that “more than 78,000 people have signed up for beta access.”

I wish this was an April Fools’ joke as it seems an incredibly stupid, pointless and downright dangerous waste of time — and let’s not even begin to entertain the legal implications here. But, hey, maybe it will keep some more aggressive losers off the dating apps.

 

Update: Here is the statement from von Hughes about the hoax.

See their comment here:

“Rumblr came about organically as a funny idea amongst a group of friends, but quickly budded into an opportunity to showcase our branding skills. Within a day or two, VentureBeat picked it up as a news story and, within another day or two, it spread to over two hundred news outlets globally.

“We saw it as an opportunity to show the world our ability to produce a brand and market a product, and that’s what we did.”

While the makers understand that there are potential Rumblrs out there who may be disappointed that it’s not real, the team suggests “fighting more pressing issues such as gang violence, domestic abuse, and at-risk youth culture” and includes a few links to some charities.

Hurrah for humanity!
