Is love literally blind?
That's the question filmmaker Jordan Orom wanted to answer — so he asked eight blindfolded strangers to kiss each other after a brief introduction. Maybe love at first kiss is more realistic than love at first sight.
The result, called "KISS ME NOW, MEET ME LATER," documents the progression of the subjects' emotions — first awkward, then sweet, then passionate — which interestingly mimic how we feel when we're falling in love.
The blindfolded participants make small talk, procrastinate a little, fumble around trying to find one another, and then finally get into it. Once they begin, the strangeness stops, and the sparks start to fly.
"Let's kiss again! Let's kiss again!" says one woman once their lips finally part.
Check out the whole video below — and see how they react to each other one's the blindfolds are off!
Let us know what you think of the experiment! Think you could do it?
