Last week, for Wren’s fall 2014 collection video, First Kiss, filmmaker Tatia Pilieva randomly paired up 20 strangers and asked them to lock lips on-camera. Unsurprisingly, it went viral. The catch: The “strangers” were all attractive models/actors/artists/musicians.
Now Vice offers a follow-up video stripped of its flattering mood lighting and coffeehouse soundtrack. In a clip called We Got 20 Strangers Who Aren’t Models to Kiss Each Other, the brand recruited a diverse group of people off the London streets, left in all the cringe-worthy sound effects, and captured what it’s really like to make out with someone new: incredibly awkward. Several members of this group couldn’t look more eager for it to be over, while in Pilieva’s a few couples give the impression they’re leaving the set with a new life partner. Watch the Vice version below:
