kiss cam

Kiss Cam (kis kam) noun. An entertaiment feature used during various sporting events in which couples -- usually one man and one woman -- are shown on an arena's JumboTron and then encouraged to kiss by the rabid and voyeuristic crowd.

Usage example: From The Canadian Press: "During a 'Kiss Cam' segment, (Josh) Childress stuck out his tongue with a wide-eyed look and leaned toward (Tyson) Chandler when the pair were shown standing next to each other near the scorer's table."

Word trivia: The Kiss Cam is a pretty standard feature of Chicago Bulls home games. Usually, they try to save something special for the final "couple." Sometimes it's an elderly couple that will make the crown go "awwwwwwh," and sometimes it's just a couple of fat guys used for the official Cheap Laugh. Many fantastic Kiss Cam moments have been recorded for posterity and posted on YouTube. My favorite is this gem from the Atlanta Hawks' kiss cam, in which 1. Shaq makes out with the top of Chris Quinn's Dwyane Wade's head and 2. a female fan gets dissed by her boyfriend and kisses the dude next to her...which causes dude's girlfriend to take a one-way trip to Crazy Town (via The AOL Fanhouse).


The following Kiss Cam footage is from a Washington Wizards game. I had no idea such a darling little girl could be such a filthy and brutal whore. (You have to watch until the end.)


From the Cleveland Cavaliers' Kiss Cam: Watch Eva Longoria cheat on her husband with a real dog. Huh. Maybe that's why she keeps Tony on such a tight leash.


And here's something extra...

ryan -- You know, on my first viewing, I thought, "Oh, that's D-Wade." But the guy's at Fanhouse said it was Quinn. So I watched it, like, three more times and it started to look like Quinn to me more and more each time. So I went with it. You know, the Force exerts a powerful influence over the weak-minded.

Basketbawful, you continue to amaze and astound me.

That first one was my favorite. That girl doesn't just kiss the dude next to her after her boyfriend brushes her off-- she starts cleaning his tonsils with her tongue! What a spiteful little b*tch.

That said, the other dude's girlfriend totally flies straight off the handle. I'll bet they're a real fun couple at parties.

As one who hates the Kiss Cam, I am nevertheless amused when they try to show something sweet and instead illuminate the darker side of the human psyche. I think they call this event 'irony.'

I was at a close Raptor game a few years ago on Valentines Day. The game was insane. Raps were charging back. Furious rally. Heart attack heart attack amazing game. Fans all on their feet going nutso bananas. Raps take the lead, other team calls time out. Crowd is still going nuts.

Air Canada Centre jackasses pull out....the kissing cam. Completely sucked the life out of the crowd. Timeout ends, energy's gone, Raps flat, game over.

I would love to find whoever came up with the kissing cam idea and punch him the the face. Kaboomski.

That first one sure seems suspicious, like it was staged.

the blonde chick obviously wasn't sitting next to her boyfriend... a boyfriend wouldn't refuse a kiss like that.. it must've been a stranger that she was sitting next to... otherwise she wouldn't turn around so easily to the black guy next to her....

Is that Matt Geiger sitting in the background (and laughing profusely) in the psycho kiss cam shot???
