Gopher fan's response to being shown on kiss cam with sister goes viral [VIDEO]

The kiss cam is awkward pretty much no matter what, but that's especially the case when your kisser is shown on the big screen along with someone you definitely don't want to smooch -- a relative, platonic friend, or person with a cold sore, for instance.

But instead of merely looking uncomfortable while the boos rained down, a fan at the Gophers men's hockey game on Valentine's night came ready to tell everyone in attendance exactly why he wasn't willing to kiss the woman he accompanied to Mariucci.

Here's the video:



The clip has proven extremely popular since it was uploaded to YouTube yesterday by an official U of M account, amassing nearly 400,000 views.

As the old proverb goes, he who is well prepared goes viral. (Or something to that effect.)

They should stage a gay kiss cam or three, and then point the camera at the two most drunk, straight dudes/ladies in the arena. That sounds mean, but... all of us will watch. :) Awkward sells!

So what if it's staged. It's great. Entertainment. :)

I know the feeling. Everytime and Anywhere people assume my older brother is my husband/boyfriend. Twice people have asked if my dad was my husband. I've been tempted to make shirts, "Hanging with my Dad" or "He's my Brother, NOT Husband".

I think it's funny...just throw a curve into the expected behavior. I've always wondered if the kiss-cam clears participants before shooting. The reason I ask is, s'pose someone is there with someone who they shouldn't be there with ;)

I was at this game and the whole crowd including me broke out in pure unadulterated laughter. This had to be set up but was absolutely hillarious!

Just think. If this happened at a Carolina Hurricanes game the guy could not only lean over & kiss his sister but also wish her a Happy Anniversary.
