First, a handshake. A nose kiss. Then comes the giggle. Saudi’s satire of the “First kiss video” viral boom turns to a celebration of diversity and leaves the viewer with an imaginary question mark. Had we forgotten about traditional greetings?
“You tried this before, right?” says one of the participants as he gives away a smile. If the ‘First Kiss’ video turns awkwardness into a stirring sensation, the Saudi parody reinvents the meaning of a kiss and swaps the quirky with an existential question mark. Who wouldn’t try the nose kiss, for a (real) change?
