This guy has a simple, brilliant way to avoid the kiss cam

That’s gross, kiss cam. Too far.

Well, that’s one way to get out of kissing on camera.

The kiss cam is a staple at almost every sports game, where it shows couples sitting around the stadium kissing and showing displays of affection, whether or not they want to. Even President Obama has been subjected to the kiss cam, and he and Michelle Obama received boos from the audience for not partaking in the tradition the first time they were featured on camera.

But what happens when the person you’re on camera with isn’t someone you’re dating?

One attendee and his sister were at the Minnesota hockey game against Michigan when the kiss cam landed on them Friday night. They didn’t pull a Jaime and Cersei Lannister, but luckily, he had a handy solution.

According to Minnesota assistant director of athletic communications Brian Deutsch, the brother asked to be shown on the kiss cam but had no idea what he planned to do.

And if you never want to actually perform on a kiss cam, you have a great way to get out of it.

Gentlemen, please cease and desist with the meme-ready marriage proposals
I am not a romantic. I loathe The Notebook, consider flowers a waste of space, and my Valentine’s Day tradition with my boyfriend is streaming Holocaust documentaries on Netflix (shout out to Hitler’s Children, whut!). I also don’t come from romantic stock: According to family lore, my father proposed to my mother during halftime of a Jets game by turning to her and saying, “The ring is upstairs on the dresser if you want it.”
