We've all seen the video of 20 "strangers" meeting for the first time and promptly making out:

 I'm not sure quite what the hubbub is, but sure.  Cute people meet cutely and share cute kissing and it's all very cute.  But as with most internet things, it's not QUITE what it seems.

1. This video is a commercial for clothes.  Notice the fashionable clothes all those fashionable people are wearing?  Yeah, that's why there's a video.  It's for Wren Studio.

2. These random strangers are all professional models and performers.  I'll let Slate take it away:

The cast includes models Natalia Bonifacci, Ingrid Schram, and Langley Fox (daughter of actress Mariel Hemingway and sister of model Dree); musicians Z Berg of The Like, Damian Kulash of OK Go, Justin Kennedy of Army Navy, singer Nicole Simone, and singer-actress Soko (who also performed the melancholy indie music that accompanies the short); and actors Karim Saleh, Matthew Carey, Jill Larson, Corby Griesenbeck, Elisabetta Tedla, Luke Cook, and Marianna Palka. Is it really unexpectedly touching that when gorgeous and charismatic Italian models, French actors, indie band leaders, and Hollywood royalty get together....the results are “beautiful”?
