Kiss Cam catastrophe: Woman appears to dump boyfriend on video board

FRESNO, CA (KLTV) -
Not every relationship was meant to be put on a video board.
At a Fresno Grizzlies game on May 3, the "Kiss Cam" captured a man so engrossed in his phone conversation that he refused to kiss his girlfriend when they showed up on the video board - not once, but three different times.
In the video, the Kiss Cam, a popular between-innings entertainment segment at baseball games across the country, shows the couple sitting together. However, the man is too interested in his phone call to kiss his date. He waves her off and the camera goes on to other fans.
The camera returns a second time, and again the man waves off his date.
Finally, the camera returns a third time and for a third time, the man waves off his date. This time, she has had enough. She stands up and dumps her drink all over his head and storms off, leaving him bewildered as to what just happened.
She can be seen walking off arm in arm with Parker, the Grizzlies mascot, as her date rushes after her.
The video has received more than a million views as of Thursday morning. On their official Twitter feed, the Grizzlies say the video was not staged and is, in fact "shenanigan-free." However, the people of the internet are quick to point out that he quickly drops his phone right before the beverage splashes on to him.
The Grizzlies are the Triple-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants. They play their home games at Chukchansi Park in Fresno, CA.
