Is This Kiss Cam Tantrum Real?


Real or acting?

The Kiss Cam, a clever little gimmick used to bridge the slow times at sporting events (time outs, inning changes, halftime, etc). More often than not, couples respond with a quick kiss, a peck on the cheek, maybe even a proposal.  Sometimes, however, couples caught on the camera do not respond as expected. And when a non-kiss happens, the video can prove to be very entertaining.

The video attached below has gone viral for just that reason. Last week, a kiss cam tantrum was caught on video at a Fresno Grizzlies game (think minor league baseball) in California. The team posted the video on YouTube with this description:

At the Fresno Grizzlies game on May 3, 2013, we learn that not every relationship was meant to be put on the Jumbo-tron, but they all have a happy ending when Parker, the official mascot of the Fresno Grizzlies is there to help mend a broken heart.

 During the clip, the big screen shows various couples noticing the Kiss Cam alert and reacting. Most did as expected, delivering a smooch on cue.

But one didn't go as planned.

One young lady can be seen pointing out the Kiss Cam notice.

But her companion is busy with an apparently very important phone call and declines. 

The kiss rejection was not received well.

The girl dumped the entire contents of her drink on the man and stormed off. He stares, but also appears to smile a little.

It was the man's smile and the fact that the camera was perfectly placed to catch this that has some wondering if it was a set up.

Watch the full clip here.
