I generally try to ignore viral links passed around on Facebook by my Facebook friends because they’re things that don’t interest me and to put it simply, I think some people like to make a big deal out of nothing. I saw the “First Kiss” video yesterday appear on my newsfeed several times.
“This is so beautiful.”
^were just a few of the comments I saw on the thread. WHAT? Am I a bad person for not feeling anything at all? I mean, I’m a huge romantic at heart and you would think that this kind of thing would hit me hard. Hello, Wedding Mondays, anyone? But I watched it and I mean I REALLY watched this – maybe I was trying too hard? and I didn’t see it.
Here’s where I think people felt their heart strings were being tugged at -
- Awkwardness – it’s relatable. We’ve all been there. We know what it was like to kiss someone new for the first time and it’s somewhat endearing to watch.
- Black and White - it’s really very pretty, isn’t it?
- Soft Music - Whoa, what is this light-hearted tune I’m hearing? I’ve never heard anything like this before on the radio?
- Romantic Comedy Syndrome – Yeah, it feels like we’re watching one.
Last question – why is everyone featured in this so attractive? Is this real life? After watching this, are people going to have some sort of expectation about this and kissing strangers? I’ve got a lot of questions – was there a medical examination done after selecting the strangers?
What does everyone else think about this video?
