Strangers undress each other for a newly released short film

Remember the First Kiss video, where twenty strangers were put in an empty room and asked to kiss? The director, Tatia Pilieva has released a new short film, titled 'Undress Me'.

In the film, twenty strangers have to undress one another - you guessed right - to their underwear, and get into bed on an empty set.

The video was made in collaboration with Emmy nominated US show Masters of Sex. Tatia's first film, 'First Kiss' went viral when it was released in March, and now has over 85 million hits.

The sweet-but-awkward nature of First Kiss made it compelling viewing, and Undress Me is no different. In the video - shot in arty black and white like its predecessor - we see the couples introduce themselves, and then start taking one another's clothes off.

The director Tatia Pilieva tweeted this shot of the video's set - a bed on an empty set

One girl warns "I get really sweaty when I'm nervous", and stuck buttons and ripped trousers also contribute to the awkwardness of the situation. However, as the film goes on, the participants become more and more confident.

They undress each other slowly but as they get into bed, they seem a lot more comfortable with one another, some even sharing a kiss and a cuddle.

Director Tatia Pilieva later tweeted "The best part of shooting this was hearing that people were chasing each other in the parking lot for phone numbers".

Despite winning a short film award at Cannes, First Kiss provoked an array of affectionate spoof videos - many playing on the fact that the subjects of the video were models (the short was a promotion for a US fashion label, Wrens) - and it would be surprising if there aren't a host of parodies of Undress Me within days.

But for now, sit back and enjoy the bumbling awkwardness of strangers trying to undress each other - then remind yourself of First Kiss.
