Эту пару нашли и взяли у них интервью.
Даже если у вас неважно с английским, посмотрите, сюжет интересный. Расшифровка ниже. Если кому нужно - по случаю переведу.
we're going to talk to them exclusively in just a moment. but first, the story behind the smooch. in the middle of the mayhem as thousands rioted in the streets following van koufer's loss in the stanley cup finals , torching cars, it is this image of the so-called riot romeo kissing his girlfriend that has captured worldwide attention.
when we first saw it, it was funny.
but scott jones and alexander thomas says their kiss wasn't a joke or a moment of passion even though their pose on the pavement does look a lot like the famous kiss from "here to eternity." here you can see what really happened. riot police running down scott and alexander has the couple tries to escape from danger.
started beating was the shields, trying to get us to move. i don't know why. we weren't being aggressive towards them.
alexander is knocked to the ground. a moment later scott lies beside her, comforting his girlfriend with a kiss. a split second captured by a camera.
it's not embarrassing at all. it's actually a really beautiful shot.
their kiss now joining other legendary lip locks. you must remember this a kiss is just a kiss but unlike any other smooch in history. scott jones and alex thomas is joining us exclusively. good morning to you.
scott , why did you decide at that moment to give her a big kiss given all that mayhem that was going on around you?
yeah, well, that was on the video what happened. i was just trying to calm her down, you know. it was pretty scary for her. seemed like the best thing to do.
i think i need to find out here, were you guys participating in some of the mischief or even worse that was taking place after that hockey game or were you simply peaceful bystanders caught in the wrong place at the wrong time?
i would call myself a tourist. it was game seven, you know. stanley cup final. something was going to happen, whether we won or loss, something big. so i just wanted to bear witness to what was going on. i never felt in danger while we were down there until the riot police came along.
it happened so fast that --
things changed really fast.
never expected it to turn into that situation so quickly.
alex , i --
alex , i understand you guys have only been dating for about six months, if i'm not mistaken. when you saw how he reacted, that he threw his body over to protect you. how do you now, when you think back and look at these images, what are your thoughts that go through your mind about that?
well, that's exactly the reaction i would like to have. you know, it's good -- if you're going to be caught up with something, have someone with you when you're caught up in it. i would never have expected anything less. you know, we've had a great six months. so it's kind of amaze that there was somewhere there to take a photo of that and capture that. i would always know those feelings and emotions from that, but there's a photograph that so clearly shows it is just pretty incredible.
he sounds like a keeper. no question about it, alex . but i will say, just quickly, what was your reaction when you started to hear people question whether this was a real photo or someone had photo shopped it and stuck it right in the middle of that riot?
that only really haepd like in the first day or so, like before anybody knew any background of the video, of the shot. and i guess it was just such a good shot people couldn't believe that would happen. it was just like the perfect lighting, perfect focus. richard who took the photo said he didn't even know he took the photo when he did because the police were coming at him and pushing him down the street. he took a few shots because he saw somebody down there injured. he just wanted to capture it.
it is a memorable, memorable image. more importantly, we're happy you two are all right. we thank you two for joining us, scott and alex .
