Max Landis and his closest friends decided to get together and do something really stupid. In the video we watch them slap each other, just for the hell of it, and there are even a couple of familiar faces in there.
Remember Haley Joel Osment? Of "Sixth Sense" fame, he who "sees dead people?" Well, he now sees people slapping each other, as he features in the above video, heavily bearded but still recognizable (it must be those tiny eyebrows).
Osment is apparently one of Max Landis' friends, who got together, just for the "fun" of it, and slapped the Dickens out of each other.
A young and pretty blond named Chloe Dykstra gets the honor of slapping the now 26-year-old actor and she apparently enjoyed it, saying, "Sorry," she says, "I'm just so excited to hit someone!"
In the description under the video, Landis explains that he "gathered acquaintances, friends both casual and close, paired them randomly, put them in a void, and asked them to hit each other in the face."
He said that no one was pressured to do it and "everyone was hit as hard as THEY asked to be hit."
He then mentions that the full story can be seen in the video "The Slap - Point of Impact" which can be seen here.
Landis added, "This is not a marketing campaign, just me and my friends being real, real dumb."
He added that the song is "We Might Be Dead By Tomorrow" by Soko.

Possibly what gave him the idea is the viral video, published earlier this year, by Los Angeles-based filmmaker Tatia Pilieva called "First Kiss", which explored how strangers might react upon meeting each other for the first time and sharing a kiss (included below) which has achieved 85,572,512 views since March 10. That's where Landis got the idea of the music too.
Well Landis has decided to go one step further and get his participants to slap each other and now his video is going viral too. Published on June 23, the video has already received 6,032,578 views.
