Spoiler alert: This video has nothing to do with Tinder.

Filmmaker Tatia Pilieva asked 20 strangers to kiss – but, like we said, unaffiliated with the hookup app – for the camera.

The result: a surprisingly nuanced, complicated and, yes, beautiful black-and-white tribute to every first kiss you've ever had. (Watch below.)

Did we mention everyone in the video is really, really attractive? That's because this smooch operation is actually advertising clothes for Wren Studio, and those aren't just any ordinary lips. The kissers range from models and actors to indie rockers, including OK Go's Damian Kulash, Marianna Palka and Jill Larson.

Still, just seconds in, you'll be screaming at your computer, "Just kiss already!" as these makeshift couples of varying ages and sexual orientations prepare to lock lips mere moments after learning each other's names, if even. You can almost feel the butterflies in their stomachs, or is that just us?

Uncertainty ("Can you turn off the lights?") turns into hesitation ("Let's look at each other for a second, okay?"), which quickly turns into fairy-tale-level perfection ("Shall we make out?").

We're just going to assume the video cut before these couples held hands, ran off into the sunset and lived happily ever after.
