"First Kiss," a beautiful short film featuring 20 strangers kissing for the first time, went viral this week and racked up more than 25 million views.

While some critics say the film is basically ad featuring lots of professional entertainers, but the creator behind it insists it's 100 percent real.

Fashion designer Melissa Coker says that despite its production quality and dazzling cast, everything that happens in the ad is real and wonderful.

"Everyone was a volunteer," Coker said, adding that the 20 people in it were friends of either herself, director Tatia PIlieva or her clothing brand, Wren.

"It's kind of funny," she adds, that "the dialogue that sort of developed online and everything where people are like, 'This isn't real, there's actors in it!'

"Well, there's some people whose profession is actor, but it's L.A. after all, I can't help but have actor friends. But everything that you see is 100% authentic."

Duke University freshman Miriam Weeks, a.k.a. Belle Knox, says her parents are not upset by the fact that she took a side job as a porn star to pay tuition.

Weeks, 18, denied a report that her Army doctor dad was heartbroken when he found out about her side job upon returning from deployment in Afghanistan.

“My parents aren’t upset,” Weeks told the New York Daily News in between filming scenes for an upcoming adult film. “I want my family left out of it."

"If people criticize me that’s one thing, but leave my family alone."

The young woman who goes by Belle Knox on screen said she was “really, really upset” over a Daily Mail article that identified her parents, who live in Spokane, Wash.

Amanda Minor, the alleged mother-in-law of Miriam’s brother Paul, was quoted as saying of their parents, “They’re heartbroken, but it’s not irreparable."

Weeks, however, says that she’s never even met Minor in her life.

“That lady doesn’t know what she’s talking about,” Weeks said.

Before she was the Duke porn star, the youngest of three college-aged kids was an A student at Gonzaga Prep, a private school her parents paid $11,000 a year for.

Cameraman Justin Lyons, the sole witness to the tragic death of Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin revealed the star's final moments in a new interview this week.

"I'm dying," was all the 44-year-old popular television host said after a surprise attack eight years ago by a massive stingray, Lyons told Studio Ten Sunday.

The two were in Australia's Great Barrier Reef in September 2006 to shoot a nature documentary when they found a "massive, 8-foot-wide stingray," Lyons said.

Lyons, who worked with Irwin for 15 years, said they were “looking for something to do” when they went exploring around the water in an inflatable boat.

He told his friend to swim up behind the stingray and he would try to get a shot of the "normally very calm" animal. But the stingray did not remain calm.

“All of a sudden, it propped on its front and started stabbing wildly with its tail," Lyons said, adding that it made "Hundreds of strikes in a few seconds."

Oscar Pistorius threw up in court Monday, often, as a pathologist detailed the injuries Reeva Steenkamp sustained when Oscar shot her through a locked door.

The Olympic track star, currently on trial for murder, was given a bucket to vomit into during testimony in South Africa, and he used it quite frequently.

When he wasn't booting, Oscar Pistorius was seen rocking back and forth in his seat, crying and covering his ears with his hands throughout the testimony.

The graphic testimony was pretty gruesome stuff by any measure.

Professor Gert Saayman detailed the bullet wounds he found on Reeva Steenkamp, Pistorius' girlfriend who he killed on Valentine's Day 2013, following her death.

The prosecution witness testified in detail about how the 29-year-old model was shot on the top of the head, in the right elbow, in the right hip and left hand.

In a stunning and unprecedented turn of events, Daylight Saving Time 2014 shook the nation to its core Sunday, prompting rattled citizens to ask "What Time Is It?"

Seriously. The trending topics on Google at the moment include "Daylight Savings Time," "What Time is It?" and "Local Time." It's chaos out there in America.

Earlier this morning, for the first time since March 2013, U.S. residents (Arizona, Hawaii and P.R. excluded ... lucky) were required to set their clocks forward.

By one hour exactly. Jaws? Hitting the ground nationwide.

Fear not, though. Breathe. We got this, people. We got it.

Chloie Jonnson, a transgender woman, is suing CrossFit over the fact that she can't compete in the women's division of the upcoming CrossFit Games.

The reason for that, as you probably inferred, is that she was born a man.

Jonnson has filed a $2.5 million lawsuit over this, citing her sex reassignment surgery in 2006 and her legal recognition as a woman by the State of California.

Chloie was shot down hard when she tried to enter against the women.

A letter from CrossFit to Chloie stated, "We have simply ruled that based upon [Chloie] being born as a male, she will need to compete in the Men's Division."

They say a male "who has a sex reassignment procedure still has a genetic makeup that confers a physical and physiological advantage over women."

That, they believe, is a "fundamental, ineluctable fact" and, lest they be criticized for that, "this decision has nothing to do with 'ignorance' or being bigots."

"It has to do with a very real understanding of the human genome, of fundamental biology, that you are either intentionally ignoring or missed in high school."

Ouch.

Ladies, there's a new app you might just want to put on your man's phone.

It's called "Lick This" and the tag line is "A web app that trains your tongue. Practice makes pleasure." Oh my.

Lick This App

 It was created by a San Francisco team who call themselves Club Sexy Time and they might be joking:

"Do we think you'll be a better lover because of it? No," says co-creator Chris Allick.

"Do we think it's an interesting approach to human computer interaction and making people think about their sexuality and maybe start a conversation? Totes."

Totes.

The brilliant people at Oscar Mayer have out-brillianted themselves.

They figured the one sure way to get people out of bed in the morning is with the sound - and smell - of bacon cooking. Because if there is one thing Americans love more than sleep, it's bacon.

Bacon Alarm Clock

They've invented a small device that plugs into the headphone jack of your iPhone and interacts with their free bacon-sound alarm clock app.

When your alarm goes off, you'll not only hear bacon sizzling, you'll also smell it. With your nose! For real!

Unfortunately for us, you cannot buy this amazing device. You have to go to their new Wake Up And Smell The Bacon website between now and April 4, 2014 and sign up for a chance to receive one.

(To research this post I obviously had to apply. I'm sad to report I didn't win one... yet. Although I swear I can already smell bacon cooking after writing the word "bacon" so many times.)

Upskirt photos are legal, a Massachusetts court actually ruled this week ... at least until the indignant state legislature now passes a bill outlawing them.

Lawmakers and officials widely criticized the ruling and spoke of criminal penalties for offenders, who they called “peeping Toms” empowered by technology.

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled on a Boston-based case in which a man took upskirt pics of female straphangers riding the subway.

It found that a Massachusetts law criminalizing the covert photographing of nude or partly nude people does not apply to “upskirting,” for one simple reason:

The photographed women are wearing clothing.

This is true of countless celebrity pics (see Kate Middleton, below), but does that mean it should be legal? This has become a surprisingly heated debate.
