When Strangers Kiss Video: The Best Spoofs

When Strangers Kiss [Youtube]

We thought we’d left cringy memories of our first kiss where they belong: back in 1995 on deserted wasteground near school. But no, last week they came flooding back when went viral. The video, made by filmmaker Tatia Pilieva, shows 20 strangers smooching for the first time. It’s had 63 million views and counting – and has spawned a multitude of spoofs. Here are the best. 

The original: when strangers kiss

Yes, they look embarrassed to be doing this and we could almost feel their pain if they weren’t all totally gorgeous models/actors/musicians with great hair and style.


The Vice version: when the strangers aren't models

So awkward. So, so awkward. Vice got 20 strangers who don’t look like American Apparel models to pucker up. Particularly love the Hollister dude a minute into the vid who reluctantly says: ‘Does it have to be 30 seconds?’ before getting into the kiss in a MASSIVE way. 


The ‘First Lick’: when humans are replaced with animals

Our personal favourite, courtesy of US talk show host and comedian Jimmy Fallon. Turns out it’s way less shudder-inducing watching a blasé-looking Bassett Hound having its bum sniffed by a Labrador.


The Sequel: when a kiss leads to other firsts

In this film, we see a couple living together for the first time and get a window into their many ‘firsts.’ First time he farts on the sofa, first time she gets a whiff of the bathroom after he’s been in there, first time he weeps when watching Titanic
