Youtube user Tatia Pllieva produced a video with WREN Studio in which 20 strangers were coupled together and asked to kiss for the first time. This 3 and a half minute video had my attention from the beginning all the way until the end, no questions asked. Things got awkward. Things got hot. Things got awesome.
The video really highlights a huge array of emotions. I like how it starts by showing people visually feeling awkward and trying to make small conversation to smooth things out. We see a bit of talking, fidgeting, and looking around as the strangers worked their way in for the actual kiss in some casual and clearly nervous manners. It is kind of amusing in a cool way because I think anyone in that position would feel almost exactly like these people. "What was your name again?" - "This right here is the awkward moment. . . " - "Just go whenever?" - were probably my favorite quotes to start the video.
Once everyone seems to get passed the slight awkward phase, they seem to just go for it. Multiple couples kiss like they've been training for this moment for years and there were even a few times I was thinking the video was going to start becoming NSFW.
After the "first kiss" is shared, you can almost sense a connection between everyone. Holding hands, constant smiles, and asking if they could keep kissing are just a few hints that this experiment really brought strangers together in a way that you wouldn't expect. I really enjoyed it from beginning until end.
