The man who appeared to reject a kiss from his date at a college football game in a viral TikTok has revealed the real story behind the clip after a huge amount of feedback online.
Sporting events continually prove to be a great source of viral videos online, with TikTok full of clips with millions of views showing funny moments and failing among huge crowds.
In September, several videos of a cat went viral after the crowd managed to save it when it took a huge crash at Miami Hard Rock Stadium, with the videos gaining a lot of popularity on TikTok.
The latest viral soccer crowd video to tour the app was originally posted on Reddit and quickly spread to several other social media platforms. The video shows a girl leaning towards her date for a kiss, but he appears to dodge it, prompting him to quickly return to the action on the pitch.

But after the video gained momentum and the couple began to receive a flood of hate, the man in the video clarified the story behind the viral clip in a Reddit post.
“Basically I’ve been talking to this girl for a while and we started dating about a week ago,” he explained. “I tell her that she should come to the Wake game since we are undefeated and we will probably win. She says yes. We go there with a group of friends, and we have a great time. Throughout the game, we flirt, hug, kiss a little, etc.
“We also do this thing where one of us leans in for a kiss, and the other person leans in, which is a joke between the two of us. So we do our little inside joke, and unbeknownst to us, we are registered.
He clarified that it had not been rejected and that they were only “playing”, adding that they did not know they were recorded. This explanation was also supported by the daughter of the video on his TikTok account.
Their posts were quickly greeted with supportive comments from readers who told the couple they looked “adorable,” calling the internet for making such quick judgments from the short clip.
