I know some of you are tired of the usual Valentine’s day lineup. Dress up, have a fancy dinner and exchange a heart-shaped box of chocolate. Boring right?
Well if your Valentine is up for a challenge this year, why not have a playful holiday? While you’re at, why not try to beat the Guinness World Record for the longest kiss ever?
Of course, this will be no easy feat. The world’s longest kiss lasted a whomping 58 hours, 35 minutes and 58 seconds.
The record was set by Ekkachai Tiranarat and Laksana Tiranarat during an event organized by Ripley’s Believe It Or Not in Thailand. The annual kissathon competition happens during, you guessed it, Valentine’s Day. This particular record was set on February 12-14 last year.
The event began with nine couples who were not allowed to sit, rest or sleep. In fact, when the contestants had to eat, drink, or use the restroom, they needed to get creative. The couples were not allowed to break away from the kiss for anything.
Ekkachai Tiranarat and Laksana Tiranarat received a $3,300 cash prize, two diamond rings and the Guinness World record for their kiss. Funny enough, they had set the record back in 2011. They may very well try to beat their record once more.
You and your date could try your hand at beating the record. If not, you just have an excuse to kiss for as long as you want.
