The dreaded "Kiss Cam" claimed another pair of victims this weekend after mistaking two siblings for a romantic couple.
In the midst of the Los Angeles Dodgers' 5-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday, the Dodger Stadium's Kiss Cam focused on a young man and woman sitting together in the stands.
Apparently bashful, the man took off up the stairs in order to evade the cameras. But as MLB.com's follow-up interview reveals, that wasn't the whole story.
"This is my sister," the man tells MLB.com. "When I saw us up there on the Kiss Camera I was just like, you know what, it'd be really funny if I just took off running right now."
This may just be one of the most awkward Kiss Cam moments in recent memory, although the couple who appeared to break up during a Kiss Cam moment at a Fresno Grizzlies minor league baseball game last May provided a similarly cringe-worthy situation.
The tradition, a mainstay at many sporting events, is hard to avoid -- just ask President Barack Obama -- but it has recently drawn criticism for what some say amounts to casual homophobia, leading writers such as NBC's Craig Calcaterra to call for its elimination.
