Is it just us, or are you also a little creeped out that the biggest viral thing right now is a video featuring a bunch of strangers kissing each other for the first time? That’s supposed to be “romantic”? For some reason we have this odd notion that maybe “romantic” has to do with actually knowing someone personally before having intimate physical interactions. We’re not the only ones:
Not rrally feeling this First Kiss video love. Creepy and manipulative, a soft porn United Colours of Benetton ad.

Not sure what to think about Wren's "First Kiss" campaign. It' falls somewhere on the border of genius and creepy.

I don't get why that first kiss video is heartwarming. It's creepy and staged.
— Cameron Ciesil (@CamTheCiesil) March 12, 2014
That first kiss video isn't sweet or inspiring. It's creepy and probably staged anyways. #cynic

The video has over 34 million views, and the strangers are actually models, musicians and actors, which means they’re probably playing a part they know that viewers want to be played. Unfortunately, there are untold thousands of weirdos on the Internet who thought this not-so-spontaneous fashion ad was “romantic.”
