The video, titled "First Kiss," features strangers which all wearing L.A. fashion label Wren's fall 2014 clothing collection, meeting for the first time and kissing on camera.
Strangers, realize, after meeting each of them, that they have to kiss each other and cope with those feelings. There's lots of awkward banter, nervous laughter and hesitant movements.
The couples start kissing, and the game changes. Some kisses are hesitant, some are quick, some left me wide-eyed, waving my hands at my screen and shouting, "Nooo, too much! Too much!"
Maybe it's so popular because it puts the viewer through a range of emotions in three and a half minutes. Maybe it's because the video is somehow both lurid and sweet and I'm so glad my mom's not sitting next to me right now. Maybe it's because if two people actually started kissing heavily in public, my reaction would not be to stare—as this video would have us do—but to look away and tweet about it.
It ends slightly less awkwardly than it begins. One man looks down at his kissing partner. "I have lipstick all over me, don't I?" he says.
Yup, you do. But don't worry. The rest of us are bright red, too.
