Watch Twenty Complete Strangers Kiss for the First Time

When you watch strangers drunkenly make out at the bar at 2AM, there’s not much cute or heartwarming about the scene. It’s clumsy and awkward and just…no thanks. Why is it then that when amateur filmmaker Tatia Pilieva asked twenty strangers to lock lips, the results were surprisingly nice. There’s still the expected awkwardness that comes when you ask two people who have never met to share an intimate moment, but it’s more aww than eww. Watch as these ten “couples” bumble their way through stilted introductions and fumblingly get down to business. There are sheepish compliments, some uncertain hand-holding and a couple whoa there, tiger moments you can’t help but smile at. These certainly aren’t your standard random hookups. [youtube=]
