Last week, a Gopher fan here in the Twin Cities took a girl to a game for Valentines Day, but it wasn’t a date, per se. Knowing that the Kiss Cam was going to be out in force that evening, he came prepared.
In this raw footage from one of the cameras, we see him notice on the big screen that the kiss camming had begun and then get ready in case it came to him and his “date.” When they switch to the camera trained on him, he’s ready…
Note to skeptics: I, too, doubted the legitimacy of this, since it seems all too unlikely and since kiss-cam antics are a well-known kind of prank. But I have it from three sources that this is completely legit — one employee of the stadium vouched for its legitimacy on Reddit and two of my friends who also know the guy confirmed on Facebook. One explained, “He was worried for a week it might happen so he went prepared.”
