Kiss Kiss Bang Bang:
Most Awkward Kisses
We’ve Seen Thus Far
By Anthony Ken
Nothing in the world can be sweeter than a kiss. From early on, it has been the one thing that has bridged our innocence to our emotional awakenings.
But in adulthood, we learn quickly that not all kisses are equal. Some can be quite the stuff of nightmares at worst, and cringe-inducing at best. Listed below are some of the more controversial kisses in recent pop culture history:
Luke and Leia
Kids who saw Star Wars for the first time would often go ‘Oh Luke and Leia’s got something going on there’. It wouldn’t be long until they go ‘Nah. But..? WTH?!!!’. We’re really not sure what’s going on in George Lucas’s mind (apparently GRR Martin ran away with whatever it was), as Luke and Leia would have more than one kissing scene!
Howard the Duck and Leah Thompson
Ah, the 80s. You could argue that things were much wilder then, but back then we didn’t have Li’l Tay. Anyway, we cannot imagine this movie getting the greenlight in this day and age, especially by a studio such as Universal Pictures, which released this one in 1986.
Madonna and Drake
There was a time when Madonna was the catalyst for many a-young boys’ sexual awakening. You could argue that she still appeals to certain demographics, and we’re not here to argue that. But this particular kiss made it here only because of Drake’s reaction afterwards.
Molly Shannon is so underrated as a comedian, and this is where you can see her at the peak of her comedic prowess. Nonetheless, we can’t help but cringe at this particular scene.
