In a video that's quickly making its way around the web (almost 20 million views on YouTube), we all get to watch as 20 strangers kiss for the very first time. Amateur filmmaker Tatia Pilieva captures a range of human emotions from awkwardness to elation in a short film featuring strangers (or rather actors) asked to lock lips.
Simple in concept, beautiful in execution. This artsy black and white video will make you remember those beautifully awkward and yet passion-filled moments in your past.
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, man (as barf-fully cheesy as that sounds). It's unexpectedly touching, like watching a documentary turn into a romantic comedy that doesn't suck. Anyway. Free kisses for everyone!
