Netflix Issues ‘Greatest Kiss Challenge’19 Jan, 2009 By: Michael Lee
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Netflix is inviting users to make video re-creations of the most memorable movie kisses of all time and earn the chance to reenact them live inside New York’s Grand Central Terminal and win a dream weekend for two in Las Vegas.
Three couples will be chosen to perform their kisses before a panel of judges. Participants can choose from 10 scenes compiled by Netflix, or they may create any other movie kiss from a film of their choosing.
“From the romantic to the unexpected, movie kisses evoke emotions in all of us,” said Leslie Kilgore, chief marketing officer for Netflix. “We think the ‘Netflix Greatest Kiss Challenge’ is an engaging way to celebrate classic movie moments and allow folks to have some fun and express some creativity in the process.”

— Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca, 1942
