A woman, who was snubbed by her boyfriend after the two were caught on “kiss-cam” at a New York Knicks vs. Houston Rockets game at Madison Square Garden Thursday retaliated with a shocking move by kissing another guy, a stranger, sitting next to her.
Most couples use the rare opportunity of a “kiss-cam” moment, when they are splashed on the big screen, for an intimate kiss. But a dark-haired gentleman appeared so busy texting on his mobile phone that he ignored his pretty girlfriend when she tried to draw his attention to the fact that the camera scanning the crowd was focused on them.
The man refused to look up from his mobile phone and continued texting, even after other sports fans tried to help his girlfriend grab his attention by shouting.
The woman appeared very upset about being ignored in front of a crowd of sports fans. So when her boyfriend kept texting and refused to look up, she paid back by turning away from him and kissing instead a lucky stranger, another Knicks fan, who happened to be seated on the other side next to her.
The “kiss-cam” captured the moment the woman and the stranger snuggled up for a kiss. The entire stadium erupted in cheering, hooting, and laughter. And not until he was being cuckolded in public did the boyfriend look up from his phone. He glared in anger and disbelief at his girlfriend enjoying a passionate kiss with a stranger while the crowd went crazy, cheering.
Red-faced with embarrassment, he spent the rest of the entire game in fuming, silent embarrassment while fans nearby congratulated the lucky stranger who just managed to steal an unexpected personal moment with a pretty girl; another man’s date.
The couple has not been identified, but the YouTube video shows the moment, as captured by a British tourist, Hugo Davies, 19.
According to the Daily Mail, Hugo, a student, who was visiting his family in New York, said, “I definitely wasn’t expecting it.”
“I was filming because this was my first basketball match and it was a normal kiss cam until this happened. At first people were shouting and laughing because he was ignoring her but when she kissed the other guy everyone went crazy cheering and laughing.
“When it did happen I couldn’t stop laughing at the time, like she totally embarrassed the guy. I think he was on his phone and wanted to finish sending his text or something so she kissed the other guy instead.
“Everyone was talking about it when they left the building, some people even went and high-fived the guy she kissed. I think the event happened at the end of the 3rd quarter.”
But some are saying that it was a planned stunt and that the three deliberately staged it to entertain the crowd. But some wonder how they could have staged it with hundreds of other couples for the cameraman to choose from at the MSG. But of course, the couple could have planned the stunt with the knowledge of the cameraman.
But Hugo said he did not think it was staged because the boyfriend looked very upset about it. Hugo told the Blaze that the incident appeared “spontaneous,” and that after the uproar had died down the boyfriend actually tried to confront the stranger.
He said “He was bright red for the rest of the game.”
“I don’t think it was staged because the guy looked genuinely angry and embarrassed after, he was blushing dark red for the rest of the game and didn’t talk to her afterwards.”
The Houston Rockets won the game 120-96.
