People Are Kissing KIA Cars To Win The Optima And It’s Being Streamed Live On Facebook

Kissing a car for an undetermined amount of time would be a little too far-fetched, don't you think?

We know money can be a matter of concern for young adults, especially when there is this powerful desire to own a sedan or SUV. That being said, how far would you go just in order to get a free car? Don’t you think kissing a car for an undetermined period of time is just too stupid?

Well, people from Round Rock, Texas don’t agree with this. Apparently, they are getting down on one knee, planting a kiss on a Kia with expectations to win a brand new car.

Organised by 96.7 KISS FM radio station at the South-West Kia showroom in the city Round Rock, the contest ‘Kiss A Kia’ requires the contestants to kiss a Kia car continually for up to 50 hours. The last person remaining (smooching) will be declared as the winner of this ‘unprecedented’ contest and will get a chance to take home a brand new 2017 edition Kia Optima.

The contest initially started with 20 contestants on Monday morning. By the end of the day, there were only 15 left. The first four hours of the contest were streamed on the facebook page, FOX Austin 17 and it’s still going on.

Fortunately, every hour the contestants are given a 10-minute break. Another nice feature of the competition is that the dealership will provide packages and exclusive deals to contestants that keep on touching their lips to the vehicle.

Moreover, there could also be ‘buyouts’, meaning people could forfeit their chance of winning the brand new car but would win other awards or prizes instead, reports mashable.

In a situation where there is more than one contestant left at the end of 50 hours, a random draw will be held to decide the only winner, which on the other hand would be quite depressing, to be honest.

So, would you like to participate in such sort of contests? FYI, these can't be covered under health insurance.
