Hawks' kiss cam shows hilarious, possibly staged beer spill

Thursday May 14th, 2015

Ahh, the kiss cam. Nothing better than moments of forced romance and hilarious beer spills.

Whether this was staged or not—it probably was, honestly; more on that later—it's a worth a share for sure.

While the Atlanta Hawks were hosting the Washington Wizards for Wednesday's Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, the Philips Arena kiss cam zeroed in on this very eager couple.

The girlfriend receiving the kiss seemed exceptionally excited, and as she went for the reacharound, her beer went with her. If this was real, well, two things.

1. That's hilarious!

2. Poor couple in front.

Seriously, though—both couples are pretty neatly within the kiss cam frame. Too neatly, a skeptical Vine viewer might say.

The girlfriend receiving the kiss also went pretty wide with the reacharound—perhaps to allow her to get the wrist in position for the beer spill?

Perhaps we'll leave this one to the jury in the comments. Atlanta went on to win Game 5 82–81 on Al Horford's putback with 1.9 seconds remaining.
