Vancouver’s Kissing Couple Revealed! (But Was It Real?)

Today the couple who were on the ground kissing while Vancouver burned around them following the Canucks loss to the Boston Bruins has been revealed.

According to Yahoo, “the Toronto Star and the CBC are reporting that the boyfriend and girlfriend in the photograph are Aussie bartender Scott Jones and Canadian college student Alex Thomas.”

There were reports speculating that the shot was staged (as shown in the picture below)

But Scott Jones’ Father Brett denied it saying:

“They were between the riot police and the rioters, and the riot police were actually charging forward, and Alex got knocked by a [police] shield and fell to the ground,” [Scott] was comforting her and gave her a kiss to say, ‘It’s going to be OK,’ and the photographer just took the shot at that moment.”

What did you think when you first saw the shot?

Did you think the photo was simply a great moment time like an old school Life Magazine shot or did you think that whole thing was either staged or photoshoppedd to gain some buzz  online (or do you think its still fake?)
