Rosemount High kissing prank tricks kids into making out with mom and dad [VIDEO]
Officials from Rosemount High School are apologizing for a so-called "prank" that will almost surely lead to a lifetime of awkward family gatherings and thousands of hours of therapy for the students involved.
At an end-of-the-year pepfest last week, a group of winter sports captains were blindfolded in the school gym in front of their peers, and told they would be receiving a kiss from a "special someone."
These poor kids reasonably assumed they were about to make out with their classmates. But the assembly organizers had something else in mind: their parents.
Footage of the assembly shows a scene that would make even Sigmund Freud cringe. Dads kissing daughters. Mothers kissing sons.
And these are not just innocent pecks on the lips. The parents are intimately lip-locking their children for several seconds. One even progresses to rolling around on the gym floor. In another instance, a mother moves her son's hand south so he's grasping her butt.
After the make-out session comes to an end, the still-blindfolded kids are asked to guess who kissed them.
"Um, they had luscious lips," says one poor soul.
