What's interested me this week?: First Kiss Video

Like most people with a social platform account, such as Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook, you will know about the video that took the world wide web by storm last week. 'The First Kiss' directed and created by Melissa Coker, founder of the clothing company Wren, has been shared and veiwed on youtube has gained a whooping 65 Million views since release date 11th March 2014. The video features 20 models, all strangers, to meet and kiss for the first time on the spot. "Everyone was a volunteer" Coker stated "Everything that you see is 100 percent authentic and real and exactly as how the video explains it.".  From then on the 3 minute video, shows some what people will call love at first site, to awkwardness.
From that the video has gained paradoy's and remakes such as Jimmy Falcon's remake featuring dogs, and 'non-model' version.
Personally I love the video. It shows true engagement and sparks you can have with a stranger, and defines the meaning of love at first site. The fact it's been shared and viewed so much this past week, is down to social network users, like myself, relatable and concept everyone desires. I'm expecting more views to hit high numbers, and its still circling the internet. But just makes me think, what will be the next internet phenomenon?
