Locals React To The Kiss Seen ‘Round The World’
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Everybody is a critic. The crowd in London chanted for a kiss but it seems viewers were dissatisfied with the results.
Folks on Independence Mall commented on the “Royal Kiss.”
One woman said it was, “A little bit too short and they needed a third one for a hat trick.”
Another said they could have made it a little more dramatic. “I think they should have choreographed it a little better, made it a little bit more of a deal even if it was going to be short,” she said.
Others wanted a little more, but not too much.
Woman: “I would have liked to see it a little longer, a little more. Not intimate because they were in front of millions of people.”
Woman 2: “I don’t think they should have done any tounge action.”
Woman 3: “Just more emotion in it as opposed to a peck.
Loeb: “Isn’t that very British though, the cold and withholding?”
Woman: “Yes, I heard one of them is very shy.”
When asked whether it was ironic to be talking about a royal wedding while standing on Independence Mall, one woman said yes, but the fairy tale concept trumped the irony.
