You thought you were in love? Check out what this 70 year couple is up to on Valentine’s Day. Pannajet and Suwanna Yomjinda of Thailand are attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the world’s longest kiss. They, along with eight other couples, have entered the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not annual kissing contest.
Pannajet, 74, and Suwanna, 72, and have been married for 50 years, aren’t sure they can break the record, due to their age, but they told ITN News that “if we were younger, we would surely win,” according to the Huffington Post.
As you can imagine, the couples have to stay continuously lipped locked for the record to stand. They’re allowed to drink water out of a straw and use a special restroom where a ref assures they don’t break the kiss (but what if they have to go number… ewww, never mind).
The contest runs through Valentine’s Day, or until only one couple is left standing. The record, by the way, is 50 hours, 25 minutes, and 1 second. Imagine their breaths afterwards. Again, ewww…
