Video: Mexicans break kissing record

Mexicans are not a nation to shy away from public displays of affection, so thousands were in their element Saturday — Valentine’s Day — when they came together in Mexico City’s Zocalo, or central plaza, to break the Guinness world record for the biggest simultaneous kiss.

The previous record was held, rather surprisingly, by the English — a nation less famed for its effusiveness in displays of love. In 2007, more than 33,000 people kissed simultaneously in London.

But the Mexicans broke that record with 39,897 people putting their lips together. Watch the video for more.
