A Minnesota high school tricked students in making out with their parents. No-- that’s not a line to get you to watch this story. That’s actually what happened. ABC has part of the video.
 

“Staff at a high school in Minnesota thought it would be funny to blindfold students and let them guess who is kissing them. The students thought they were kissing classmates but it turns out they were kissing their parents. On the lips.”

That video was uploaded to YouTube-- and went viral-- prompting a mix of reactions across the web-- the most common of which was: ew.

A blogger for The Stir calls it--  an incestual grossout.

Gawker dubs it the year’s dumbest, grossest idea.

And here’s Metro’s take: Rosemount High School gives incest the green light-- And then says, 'Sorry'

And the principal IS sorry. He tells Minnesota TV station KARE- he regrets that some people were offended by the prank-- but adds-- the viral video could be misleading.

Reporter: “Why people were so put off possibly has a bit to do with context. What some are upset about is what they saw in this 59 second YouTube clip, which according to Principal Wollersheim, isn’t 100 percent indicative of what happened at the assembly.”

Principal Wollersheim: “What you see on the Internet, sometimes you see just portions of what really happened.”


Still-- he says the school won’t pull the parent-on-student prank again. But the editorial staff at the Rosemount Town Pages asks-- why apologize? They suggest-- the video really does make some innocent PG pucker-ups look like R-rated rendezvous.
 
“The parents hammed it up as they played their part. At least, we assume nobody was making out as intensely as the video seems to show...”

 

To that-- a Jezebel blogger says-- oh please.

“[The principal] says the activity went on for almost a half an hour, and apparently it wouldn't seem so gross if we saw the 29 minutes of lead up to a mom passionately kissing her kid.”

Finally-- a Hypervocal blogger notes-- who cares if the video was misleading? Parents were still lip-to-lip with their grown children.

“This is the very definition of WTF. Why would the school think this was a good idea? Why would the parents agree to scar their children for the rest of their lives? There are too many whys...”

The school says it has pulled the prank before-- but last time-- it was just a peck on the cheek. You can find a link to the  minute-long smooch fest here
