This Film of 20 Strangers Kissing For The First Time Is Magical

As cliched as it sounds, watching strangers make out for the first time, for art, really is a thing of beauty... For her short film First Kiss, artist Tatia Pilieva gathered 20 strangers together and pretty much said  "hey you just met and you probably already don't remember this person's name, but make out in this studio, in front of my camera, OK? Great." It's just as awkward and uncomfortable to watch as it sounds...until it's not. Maybe it's the sweet song or the beautiful photography, or the fact that most of these people are really quite attractive (they are actors, after all), or  perhaps it's witnessing a human connection that's both physical and emotional, risky and strangely fragile blah blah blah—whatever it is, the result is, as cliched as it sounds, beautiful and surprisingly touching. Watch it, even a cynic like me will understand why it's gone crazy viral, reaching 7.5 million views (and counting) in just one day...
