What Happens When Complete Strangers Are Asked to Kiss Each Other…

March 12, 2014 in Art, Video

first kiss

We don’t know if it’s the song selection or because it’s in black and white or the fact that everybody in this video is so attractive, but what started out as incredibly awkward – seeing two strangers meet each other and kiss for the first time – turned into something pretty beautiful. The premise of the video, called First Kiss and directed by Tatia Pilieva, was to get 20 strangers and have them kiss each other for the first time. It gets electric.

It’s cute to see the strangers be all hesitant at first (as most sane and sober people would be!) but once they go for it, it’s like watching fireworks. It is so unexpectedly touching. Free kisses for everyone!




At first they were uncomfortable..
