Kissing Vancouver Riot Couple Appear on ‘Today’ Show [VIDEO]

Alex Thomas and Scott Jones, the couple who made headlines after being caught in a kiss at the Vancouver riots last week, appeared on ‘Today’ this morning to tell the story behind the makeout session seen ’round the internet. Jones explained that Thomas had been knocked to the ground by police trying to tame the crowd (which a video that emerged over the weekend supports) and he was only trying to soothe her:

“’I was just trying to calm her down,’ Jones told TODAY’s Matt Lauer and Ann Curry via satellite from Vancouver in an exclusive interview alongside Thomas. ‘It was pretty scary for her, and it seemed like the best thing to do.’’’

‘Today’ compared the picture, taken by photographer Rich Lam, to other legendary smooches caught on camera, from Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr’s beachside kiss in ‘From Here to Eternity’ to the WWII nurse and soldier locking lips on V-J Day.
