Matty + Bobby’s Guinness World Record Longest Kiss Attempt Is Underway

It’s not the Kiss Cam of the St. Louis Cardinals — it’s Matty Daley and Bobby Canciello’s attempt to set the Guinness World Record for the longest kiss. Which means they need to lock lips, without separating once, for more than the 32 hours, 7 minutes, 14 seconds that Germans Nikola Matovic and Kristina Reinhart managed in 2009.

We learned about the project of Matty and Bobby — who are just friends, THANKYOUVERYMUCH — in August, but the College of New Jersey students rescheduled their marathon smooch because so many people wanted to watch. And if you can’t make it to the college campus to witness it in person (parking instructions here), you can watch the live stream:

We’ve only been watching a few minutes, but already you can see there are interested on-lookers — and a definite need to stretch so they don’t get tired too soon. Good luck, boys!

Will Matty + Bobby Break Guinness World Record’s Longest Kiss?

    I wonder if swapping spit counts and breaking the fast…

  • Hyhybt

    32 hours, I’d have arranged at least not to have to stand…


    I love this idea, ya just know it will cause lotsa frighwing lunatics heads to explode that “ohh the horrors” a Gay couple can actually be allowed to kiss for so long!!

    32 Hours without a pee break……..Damm you guys are definatley taking one for the team!!

    Best of luck in your kiss quest. Kudos to you guys and Guinesses for not trying to exclude the Gays from their records……….

  • pete

    @Hyhybt: They’re not allowed to sit or lean against anything in any way. I wish them luck. I certainly couldn’t do it.

  • Kyle412

    Why? They aren’t even a couple. What people will do for their 15 minutes.

  • Hyhybt

    @pete: An interesting rule to add to a record for “longest kiss.” Why would they require that, I wonder?

  • Dollie

    Lord, 33 hours!! I couldn’t/wouldn’t do it!

    But, best of luck to them!

  • Ogre Magi

    WOO HOO WHAT HOTTIES! I wanna taste of that bad boy meat!

  • ron

    @Ogre Magi: Speaking of that, is there a Guinness record for longest blowjob? Or longest fuck?

  • peherwood

  • Clint

  • alan brickman

    How does this help equal rights for gay again????…A bit self serving….even if they don’t make it…they already have 15 minutes from queerty…

  • John

    @alan brickman: Get a life, Alan. You must be a sad, lonely man.

  • John

    How are they disrobing/changing shirts/sweaters without breaking their smooch? The smaller one has been in and out of sweaters and shirts and is currently without any top on.

  • Chris

    @John: They will put on button up shirts or zip up jackets that you can put on one arm at a time.

    Matty used a key to rip his tee off earlier when it got really hot.

  • Emma

    This is inspiring (: and it’s great for gay rights. I go to a school that they don’t really support that kind of thing.. but I think what you guys are doing is great and I fully support it! Shout out? <3

  • A

    They did it! :D

  • Dallas David

    Huh . . . lots of straight kids supporting the effort as well.
    Truly inspiring.

    Watched part of the Ustream. I thought it was a great idea. Kids on college campuses and in high schools are I think more homophobic than adults. Did you see the video that’s been tweeted around trying to convince gay high school kids not to commit suicide? Some above actually had the nerve to say self-serving. Reallly? Ten years ago this could never have been done. Heck I don’t even think 5 years ago.
