#BBCtrending: The story behind Saudi Arabia's 'first kiss'

A parody of the "first kiss" video has itself become a YouTube hit in Saudi Arabia.

The original 'first kiss' has been watched more than 71 million times. It featured strangers kissing for the first time and resulted in a number of spin-offs including this one from Saudi Arabia, which shows men adopting the Bedouin tradition of rubbing noses.
