20 Strangers Kissing: Tatia Pilieva's Short Film Is A Gorgeous Experiment

UPDATE: The 'Strangers Kissing' Film Was A Fashion Ad. Insert Fury/ Indifference/ Confusion Here

Will it be awkward? Creepy? Uncomfortable?

That’s a question Tatia Pilieva’s short film First Kiss seeks to answer. The premise is simple: Get 20 complete strangers to passionately kiss. Nothing more.

And the results? Well, they’re surprisingly beautiful… so beautiful almost 2.5 million people have watched the film in just one day.
