The kiss cam is one of those moments that can make or break an intermission. The camera operator pans through the crowd in search of couples that are prime to give the audience a show. Sometimes its sweet, who hasn’t seen a marriage proposal on a kiss cam – amirite? It gives the crowd something to cheer for even if their team isn’t doing so great. Plus, who doesn’t like a little PDA thrown in your face, especially when it has the secondary effect of embarrassing the couple.
Of course, there are also those awkward moments on the kiss cam. The ones where they show an affair on national television and the partner watching at home finds out. Or, a marriage proposal where they say no. These kiss cam fails are pure comedy gold. Seriously, try not to laugh as you make your way through the list. If you can do it, you’re better than the rest of us.
