When you’re a man of marrying age going to a basketball game on Valentine’s Day with your blonde sister who looks to be about your same age, you come prepared.
The was the proactive thinking of one University of Minnesota fan who wanted to make sure he would not be caught unprepared by the dreaded “Kiss Cam” that has famously ensnared even the president of the United States and the first lady.
The man, who was not identified, was sitting in the stands at the university’s men’s hockey game at the Mariucci Arena in Minneapolis Feb. 14 when he seemed to get a notion that the camera would be focusing its lens on him and his sister.
In a video posted on YouTube by the university, the man reaches into his jacket and pulls out a folded piece of paper, while his sister eyes him nervously.
When the pair do, in fact, show up on the arena’s big screen, the man unfolds the paper to reveal a sign that reads, “MY SISTER,” with an arrow pointed in her direction.
The video has been viewed more than 4 million times since it was posted Monday.
Calls to the University of Minnesota Athletic Department were not immediately returned.
