The cute French kiss video that showed strangers meeting and kissing for the first time has impressed many people. However, it seems that the strangers shown in the video are actors and models in a clothing ad.
The clip has already made sensation on the Internet, being liked and shared by thousands of people. What impressed viewers is the fact that everything seemed very real. The YouTube clip lasts 3 minutes and is entitled First Kiss.
The clip is directed by Tatia Pilieva, who gathered 20 strangers, who kiss each other for the first time. The clip attracted over 14 million views, while viewers actually had absolutely no idea that they were watching actors and models.
The clip was made part of a campaign for clothing company Wren Studio. After the news broke, revealing that the people in the clip are actors, it was claimed that the producers staged the whole thing. However, the company defended itself saying that these people were really strangers and they met there for the first time.
Some people started to believe that it was fake when they first saw the name of the actors, which included actors Karim Saleh, Matthew Carey, Jill Larson, Corby Griesenbeck, Elisabetta Tedla, Luke Cook, and Marianna Palka. The models featured in the clip are Natalia Bonifacci, Ingrid Schram, and Langley Fox. Musicians Z Berg of The Like, Damian Kulash of OK Go, Justin Kennedy of Army Navy, singer Nicole Simone, and singer-actress Soko were featured in the video, as well, but they were also responsible with the music that can be heard in the background.
The video was launched only 2 days ago and was already watched by more than 2 million people. The clip is beautiful and passionate, so there is no wonder that so many people liked it. The adorable video melts the heart, showing how passion can occur easily through a simple kiss.
The filmmaker claimed that none of the people featured in the video were paid for the advertisement. So, while some still believe in the authenticity of this video, others seem to think that it was all directed by its producers.
