By now you’ve likely heard of “First Kiss,” the video by filmmaker Tatia Pilieva in which 20 strangers meet and kiss for the first time. Not surprisingly, the video experiment that includes one pair of women kissing, went super viral. One of the women, French out musician Soko – who sings the song on the video soundtrack --chatted about the experience of participating in the film.

"It felt like the longest kiss of my life, but I wanted to just kiss more. It was so pure," Soko told ABC. "Afterwards we went to get breakfast and then we ended up just hanging out the next four days. We didn't really take anything further romantically but we made a real connection and I feel like that's one of the most beautiful things people can take away from this video."

Here’s the viral sensation if you haven’t seen it.
