The most hilarious kiss cam fails captured on camera
The kiss cam may be the greatest thing to ever happen to sports. It captures true love, absolute disgust, and everything in between.
Here are 30 of the most hilarious kiss cam moments in sports.
Jeez, lady, what is your deal? Mr. Blackhawk himself is up here trying to extend an offer of friendship. He/she/it is giving you a teddy bear, one full of love and joy. And what do you do? You take that bear and throw it to its presumable death. You throw it down to the floor with no regard for anything.
Look at the reactions of those around you. Absolutely horrified. This is inexcusable behavior. You, ma’am, should be banned for life from attending Blackhawks games for the blatant disrespect you showed the mascot and its teddy bear. Shame. On. You.
Power moves only
This isn’t his first time executing this maneuver. This man is a smooth criminal, always ready to sweep whatever lady he’s with at the time off her feet. Look at the technique, the twist, and the turn. The man does a 180 with his gal pal in his arms, much to the crowd’s shock or delight, depending on how you look at it.
But seriously, there’s a limited amount of space at a sports game, and to do this move, you have to be flawless. You have to stick the landing, so to speak, and he did. And when he did, he laid down a fat smooch that started making his neighbors cringe, grimace, and groan.
This moment went from sweet to sour in a hot second, thanks to that sour-patch kid. See, mom and dad were at the game having a grand ol’ time. They even brought along the third member of the family, the baby and soon-to-be superfan of whatever team they’re rooting for. However, it looks like the baby had one too many sips of beer.
She was just trying to get into the game and sip and soak up that team spirit. But that one extra sip appears to have pushed her over the edge, as evidenced by the sludge dripping down her precious chin.
Look at the love in this scene. Two Florida Gators getting engaged at a sporting event. Their babies will bleed Gator blue and orange. That family is going to gator-chomp everything in sight while screaming “SEC, SEC, SEC!” Yet, look a little closer and you will notice a teen(?) in a black shirt doing some of the weirdest proposal security ever.
Maybe he was hired to keep the rabid Gator fans off the newly engaged couple, or maybe he was just acting a dang fool because he knew the camera would be on it. Either way, the effort he put in to keep the two boys at his side at bay was tremendous. Job well done.
Sir, that bucket of popcorn probably cost you an arm and a leg at a sports game. So the real question is, was that smooch worth it? Was wasting your hard-earned dollar on some popcorn theatrics worth it? By the reaction of your missus, that would be a YES. An emphatic yes! He was so happy to have finally made it on the kiss cam that he hardly knew what to do with himself.
This was his moment to profess to the fans his love for her. And she seemed equally ready to reciprocate his excitement. Look at the guy at the end of the clip in total disbelief that someone would waste that much popcorn. Mixed emotions here for sure.
We did it!
“Look, Mom and Dad, I made it!” That’s what these two probably said after appearing on the kiss cam, because that kind of reaction screams, “Finally.” Finally, the camera found us amid the orange, pink, and red seats. Finally, the camera found us, although we sit alone at every one of these miserable games, biding our time until we appear on the legendary kiss cam.
That reaction is pure joy and love. It’s unfiltered and unadulterated. And all of that time was worth it, because the kiss cam captured true love, which many people think is fading away with each passing day. Well, thanks to these two, we know it’s not.
Get a room
These two sure have lots of lust for each other. The thing is, it appears they forgot where they are. They’re not at the Marriott or Motel 6. They’re also not at home. Nope, they’re at an Oklahoma City Thunder game, creeping everyone out by the second.
Kiss cams are meant for a nice peck on the lips or a funny moment, not a full-fledged French kiss that makes even those in the adult entertainment industry uncomfortable. Plus, aren’t there better things to do at a Thunder game, like watching Russell Westbrook steal rebounds from his teammates, jack up deep threes, and get into altercations with fans?
You OK, bro?
The man in the white bandanna is NOT feeling it. The moment the cam hits him, he goes from white to ghostly white. In. A. Flash. The horror on his face says it all. We’re not sure who sits to his right, but whoever she is, she is not someone he wants to smooch. Not even close. That man is just like, “Nah fam, hard pass for me.”
She, on the other hand, takes it a little better? Doesn’t show complete disgust for him? Don’t get us wrong, she’s pretty shocked that the cam found her and the bandanna, but she doesn’t look like her soul has left her.
This quasi-looking Leonardo DiCaprio Minnesota Golden Gopher fan came prepared. And, as they say, “If you fail to plan, plan to fail.” Failure, folks, was not an option, at least for Minnesota Leo. He knew he would end up on the dreaded kiss cam. He knew the risks of going to a sporting event with his sister. And he knew that these two, at a passing glance, look like a couple.
So he thought about how he could make this inevitable situation less painful. When the moment was right, Minnesota Leo busted out the perfect note from his jacket pocket, one that read, “My sister.” Crisis averted. Family legacy (thankfully) saved.
Move girl, get out the way
Why is he not sitting next to his gal? Why is the girl in the middle sitting there, totally blocking these two from showing their love for each other? Seems rather selfish. When the cam finally did get on these triplets, the two bookends went in for a (quick) kiss with lightning speed.
The middle girl recognized the situation and got out of dodge faster than Usain Bolt running the 100-meter dash. Piece of advice: Next time you’re at a sporting event and have an interest in getting on the kiss cam, sit next to the person you plan to lay your lips on.
Son, shut your eyes
This is for your own good, boy. Look away, shut your eyes, and block this moment from your memory. The two to your left — could be Mom and Dad or complete strangers — are going at it. That’s actually an understatement. By the looks of it, that man has his tongue a few inches down that Nuggets fan’s throat. At first, the boy glances over.
Nothing but a harmless kiss cam moment. Then the horror sets in. He realizes these two aren’t just smooching; they are expressing deep-seated feelings of love. They are so immersed in their kiss they forgot they were at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.
Eagles fans are a savage bunch, no joke. And this guy is no exception. He and his lady are having a blast at what looks to be a Charlotte Hornets game (notice the bucket of popcorn in the background). And here’s something we all know: The Hornets suck and their games are probably a bore. So this couple was understandably excited about getting on the kiss cam.
That alone, however, wasn’t spicy enough. So Charlotte’s most passionate Eagles fan decided to launch a surprise attack. Moments before what seemed to be a standard kiss, the man stuck out his tongue, which was hiding like a snake in the grass and absolutely destroyed his lady.
Not today, fam
Can you read lips, Mr. Kiss Cam Operator? The guy in the Thunder hat is pleading with you. He’s sitting next to his mom! And she, shockingly, is sitting next to her son! They don’t want to kiss! Get the camera off them, for the love of God. There has to be a couple in the audience ready to smack some lips, but, understandably so, not these two.
When the cam spots this mother-son combo, they immediately recognize it. And they immediately know what to do. It’s like they’ve been there before. Mouth the words, “That’s my mom!” and, “That’s my son!” Hopefully, the operator can see that and find someone else’s spot to blow up.
In love with himself
Philly fans. We’ll say it again: They are a unique bunch. And by unique, we mean savage, crazy, unruly, obnoxious, and more. This batch of fans knows no limits. And this guy knows no love. Actually, that’s wrong. He is fully in love with himself. And if you can’t love yourself, who can you really love?
Hopefully, at some point, this guy can upgrade from self-love and give away all of that love to someone else. One day, this man plans on not appearing on the kiss cam solo. Until that day comes, expect this Philly Phanatic to be out here hugging and kissing himself whenever possible.
Tongue in cheek
Once again, the classic tongue maneuver is displayed and executed perfectly here. When this couple got on the kiss cam, many people, including this unassuming girlfriend/wife/friend, were ready for just a kiss. The hesitant woman leaning in coupled with the shutting of her eyes meant she was ready for something basic, something easy. But her man, beer in hand, was plotting.
He, all the while, was prepping how to really throw her off. And he did so with a tongue to the tip of the nose. The best part of all of this was how both of them went back to whatever they were looking at like nothing happened. Just a standard walk-in-the-park tongue-to-the-nose situation.
LeBron James and Chris Bosh. A match made in basketball heaven. A dynamic so hot everyone felt the Heat. Yet, when the two superstars were put on the kiss cam, they made their intentions clear. They would not be kissing. LeBron, Mr. Cameraman, is a married man. His loyalty will not bend for Chris Bosh, another married man.
Obviously putting these two on the kiss cam was done in jest, but LeBron’s “GTFO” reaction is perfect, as is Bosh’s, “Wow ’Bron, would you look at that? We’re on the kiss cam!” Now, as a tactic to throw off LeBron, this could be a good idea. Nothing like some home-court advantage.
Where is the love?
As The Black Eyed Peas once asked in an anthem that touched the hearts of millions, “Where is the love?” This couple, either at a Hawks or Heat game, is not interested in touching lips and swapping spit. “Nah,” she says. “Not for me. No thank you. Hard pass.” That man may never recover from this.
His girl (that might be a stretch) shot him down so incredibly fast he barely had time to process what just went down. Now, people, is the time for thoughts and prayers. We don’t know his name, but we can feel his pain. It is the time to send him prayers, good vibes, and anything else that could help him through these troubled waters.
Hot dog fan
This is a take-no-prisoners approach to hot-dog eating. First things first, man: Hot dogs above all else (HDAAE). He knows the rule; do you? See, when the kiss cam spotted this man, there wasn’t any chance he wouldn’t be sinking his teeth into that dog before a kiss. Nope. The kiss can wait. The lady can remain on hold.
There. Are. Dogs. To. Munch. After the man devoured the dog in animalistic fashion, his partner gave off a face of pure disgust. You, sir, will not be kissing me any time soon. And we can hardly blame her. Her man had a mustard beard and ketchup breath.
Pop and drop
Popcorn is secretly climbing the ladder and working toward winning Best Supporting Actor/Actress in kiss cam footage. Its moments in the sun keep multiplying, thanks to moves like the one this coldhearted girlfriend/wife/friend/lady executed. Although the two are wearing separate jerseys, they appear to be on the same team.
And the man definitely thought this when he went in for a smooch, only to be surprised with a bucket of popcorn straight to the dome. Get some, you Hurricanes fan. You thought you were getting lucky. Think again. You’re getting popped. By the looks of it, he definitely didn’t appreciate this move, either.
Can you feel the burn from wherever you’re reading this from? Look at that man try and wrap up his girl and lay down a fat one, only to catch a stiff arm and spin move. He got sent packing faster than Antonio Brown from the Patriots. This man’s chances evaporated into thin air.
And the guy behind him realized just how severe that second-degree burn really was. Can this guy get a medic or some first aid? Anyone have some aloe vera to alleviate him and his burning soul? He needs it, and he needs it now. RIP, good man.
Wasting popcorn for a moment on the Jumbotron is excusable. Wasting beer? Not so much? A 12-ounce pour costs a pretty penny. Like, way too many dollars for the garbage light beer you’re forced to drink at a stadium or arena. So when you get on the kiss cam, please be cautious with your liquid gold. There are sober kids in India, mind you.
This guy in back never got the memo and went full send on his kiss with his lucky lady. The unlucky person in this situation was the third wheel sitting below the overzealous couple. He received no love and a back full of beer. Guess it was a Bud Light kind of night.
Cup of love
Dude, we get it. You love Miller Lite, Bud Light, Coors Light, or whatever other alcoholic water you’ve got there in your cup. But seriously, don’t let the world know how deep your love is for the overpriced 3% buzz you’re getting. And all the while, look at your girl. She didn’t bust out the flaming pink for no reason.
She wanted some attention, some love. And SHE’S NOT GETTING IT. Nope, your plastic cup of suds is getting more action than the lady you brought to the game, and her face says it all. It says F U and your side-chick cup of beer.
The Sacramento Kings are pretty much a dismal franchise located in a California city that gets virtually no love, other than the fact that it’s the state capital. So to keep fans entertained at Kings games when the on-court product really isn’t enough, the team decided to get a hyped-up-on-life lion mascot.
This mascot goes hard, and his unpredictable moves can catch even the most alert and ready folks, like this officer, off guard. The lion mascot went full predator and reverted to his/her carnal instincts. You can see the officer just wanted a peck on the cheek. What he got was a whole lot more.
Luck of the Irish
It worked. The classic ploy to throw off the opposition by putting two members in the kiss cam worked. Yep, look at the player on the left. His face is a healthy mixture of confusion and disappointment, which is the perfect recipe to get him to stop thinking about basketball. And now let’s have a look at the Celtic on the right.
Just smiles and laughs. While those are healthy emotions, they are not game-ready emotions. The kiss cam got in their heads and that spells doom for the Cs. Kryptonite found. This reaction is much different than the one LeBron and Bosh had.
Not today, pal
This grandma isn’t playing around, people! She’s been around the block and seen all the tricks. She’s crossed a player or two and learned. And when this guy thought he was going to get a smooch in, he thought wrong. See, grandma here is protecting her lips like Fort Knox. Nothing is getting through, and you’re a fool for trying.
The impenetrable force that grandma is can best be summarized by that vicious reaction and head shake she gives the unsuspecting man. If that’s not tough love, then by golly, what is? Lucky for him she didn’t have any popcorn to pour on his noggin.
I’m on the phone
Everyone gets a phone call at the wrong time and just has to answer it. Unfortunately for this guy, that phone call was a double whammy. Yep, we just used that phrase. Double-friggin’-whammy. See, part A of the whammy was the phone call at a sports game. If you’re a big enough fan to wear a Celtics hoodie at an away game, chances are you’re a big fan.
And no big fan wants to deal with a phone call when there’s basketball to be played. Part B of the whammy was the phone call occurred during the kiss cam, meaning the man and his high-level frustrations were broadcast for the stadium to see.
Love the chug
Another light beer lover. Who knew there were so many 3% enthusiasts? Who knew there were so many people willing to spend a paycheck on a fleeting buzz that you pee out? At least for this guy, the beer was more than an object just to drink — it was one to kiss and get weird with.
This guy was at least down to chug the beer like the hero that stadium needed. When in doubt, get on the kiss cam and chug your beer like a boss. Bring back the college days and prove your worth. Show your buddies that you, Frank the Tank, still got it. Beers are for the boys!
But you say he’s just a friend
Borrowing the lyrics from an all-time great song popularized by a Heineken commercial, Biz Markie told the world what was up. That you say he’s just a friend, even though he’s much more than that. In this case, this guy was just a friend, and the Canadian fan in the T-shirt let everyone know there was a clear boundary.
Yeah, sure, put us on the kiss cam, but all you’re going to get is a face full of disgust, not lust. No kisses, just disses. That friend in red laughed initially before being hit by a fat wave of repulsive thoughts, explained by his tongue-out, hand-to-face reaction.
Mr. Steal Yo’ Girl
Whoa! It’s Mr. Steal Yo’ Girl, and he’s back for a new round of theft. The man in yellow wasn’t feeling the kiss cam. He said enough of this nonsense, I’m here for SPORTS. Well, it doesn’t take much for Mr. Steal Yo’ Girl to get inspired and into gear. He’s a give-an-inch-take-a-mile kind of player.
When he got his inch, aka the man in yellow rejecting the girl, he went and took a mile, aka the girl. Yep, in one smooth move, Mr. Steal Yo’ Girl was ready to swoop in and go for the kill, and you bet your you-know-what that he didn’t fail.
