Jimmy Fallon’s “First Lick” Video Spoofs Viral Ad of 20 Strangers Kissing

Last night, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon broadcasted “First Lick,” a parody of the viral video “First Kiss,” directed by Tatia Pilieva, that was supposed to portray 20 strangers kissing for the first time. While Internet users were disappointed to learn that “First Kiss” was not spontaneous at all — and, in fact, an advertisement for WREN, the Los Angeles-based womenswear brand — Fallon’s version with puppies and kittens slobbering over each other will never disappoint.
