This is clearly fake (right? RIGHT?), but for low-level actors working on a limited stage that relies on cell phone magic to bring their work to the rest of the world, this is pretty good.

The ‘Kiss Cam’ at Wednesday night’s Atlanta Hawks/Washington Wizards game in Atlanta “caught” this:
This isn't the first time a kisscam moment has come under scrutiny: A couple attending a Dodgers-Giants game last year got plenty of social media speculation as well.
The Atlanta Hawks have one of the better, if not the best, social media staffs in the NBA. The team may not exactly be ahead of its time in engaging recent fans of the squad with the East’s best record (that ‘Tinder Night’ promotion might be regarded as the ‘Pet Rock Night’ of our sad, little era), but they certainly are proactive and whip-smart when it comes to bringing the funny.
Even if they didn't exactly sell everyone on the gag:
If something funny happens on a kiss cam, it's fake.

lolololol at basketball Twitter believing that ATL Hawks kiss cam fail is real. They put a gag fake-out at the end of every kiss cam. 😜

Whatever the case, we can all agree to give many kudos to the actress who willingly took beer to her hair in order to grab some laughs during a third quarter timeout.
And most importantly, the Hawks are one win away from their first Eastern Conference finals since 1960.
