What’s more adorable than two squirming teenagers on the screen of a basketball arena's kiss-cam? How about seeing Mr. and Mrs. Obama!
The president and first lady took a day off from the campaign trail to catch one of the U.S. vs. Brazil pre-Olympics basketball games when they were picked up by the all-seeing kiss cam during the second quarter. Apparently though, the couple missed the chance to smooch the first time around!
According to the Los Angeles Times, a spokesperson explained that the Obamas didn't realize they were on camera the first time around... hence the smile and side hug that elicited so many boos from the audience.
The couple was informed of their gaffe by their daughters just after the moment had passed. Luckily, the camera panned back shortly after and this time, the Obamas were ready!
In case you haven’t had enough “aww” in your day, watch the clip of Barack planting an adorable and tasteful kiss on Michelle. Politics aside, that’s pretty darn cute:
