a new world record for the longest kiss while standing in the windows
of leading European fashion retailer Mexx.

for the longest kiss while standing in the newly opened Mexx store
windows on Queen Street West.
After 15 hours and 31 minutes, the finalists collectively
decided to split first and second prize amounting to a $12,000 shopping
spree at the retailer and ultimately share the record for the longest
kiss while standing in a store window.
The rules of the event included staying awake and standing at all
times without leaning.
Several couples came prepared with liquid
protein and energy drinks that they were allowed to consume through
a straw while kissing.
Official witnesses observed the participants
incessantly, and if their lips parted or any of the rules were not
followed, the couple was immediately disqualified.
four winning couples are Jonathan and Lesley Greenwald, Matt
Kowall and Taralyn Marshall, Eric Alderson and Kathy Berenthal,
and David and Lindsay Lin.
The event entitled ‘Inspired by individual style…and a kiss’ marked
the arrival of the new concept boutique on Queen Street.
Playing on the theme that created the successful brand
in 1986 -- when two popular European brands, Moustache and Emanuelle
were united with two kisses - M(oustache) + E(manuelle) + XX = MEXX
-- the event paid tribute to the history of the brand and the love
affair that started it all.
