Cheating is tricky business – because as the saying goes, the truth will out.
One man realised this while at a football match, as he stole a kiss from his date, not aware that the kiss cam was filming the precious moment between the pair.
But why is that awkward, you ask? Well, you see, the woman he kissed was not his girlfriend (and yes, he has one).
The hilarious clip was shared on Twitter, captioned: ‘When you kiss your side chick and realize your marriage is over cuz you’re on camera [sic]’.
It’s the nightmare scenario for any cheater; not only have you been caught, but the whole world is there to watch it.
And they are definitely watching – the clip has so far racked up more than 22.6million views, has over 284,000 likes and has been retweeted over 70,000 times.
But did he really cheat on someone? We did some digging to find out the truth.

The man in question, who has been identified as Deyvi Andrade, was at an event called Noche Amarilla 2020 in Ecuador, watching a football game between Barcelona SC and Delfin.
Since getting called out, he has taken to Facebook and Instagram to tell his story, but oddly appears to be blaming women (just, you know, in general) for the situation he’s gotten himself into.
The following messages have been translated from Spanish.
‘If it was a woman was in my place what would you do?,’ he writes.
‘Various videos have been circulating of unfaithful women but they haven’t been made fun of as much as me. I hope you never have to be in my position.’ (edited)
‘I’m going to defend my honour and my pride as a man until the end…
‘We all fail and we all repent, thank you to those who have invited me to church and if I go it is so I can heal my family.
‘No one is going to be able to damage my image, God is big and strong and these women who are criticising me, I know too have cheated but they still comment.’
He follows up with a confirmation of that the video has indeed wrecked his relationship.
‘You’ve already destroyed my relationship, what more do you want?,’ Deyvi adds.
‘I hope this doesn’t serve you in any way because you are only hurting a son of God.
‘You don’t know the psychological damage you have caused with your hatred directed at me. Everyone fails and we can forgive from our hearts. God give me strength!’
While the situation is undoubtedly sad for his partner (it’s unclear whether the pair are married or not), people just can’t get enough of the karma.
‘You can see the moment his heart drops out through his ring piece,’ tweeted one person.
Someone else commented: ‘He would have been wayyyyyy better off just rolling with it. 1. Less chance of wife seeing it since it wouldn’t go viral 2. Won’t piss off side chick. His reaction basically kills it for both women.’
‘There’s a good chance his wife isn’t interested in football and she won’t see it,’ offered another Twitter user (she did).
‘You can see the fear slowly overtaking him, that ice cold feeling through your veins,’ wrote someone else.
Even the rock band Nickelback joined in on the fun.

Some people claimed that the video was ‘played in reverse’, to make it appear as if Deyvi was cheating but that was not the case, as he has now admitted to his adulterous ways.
‘I want to go back to living these moments by your side my lovely, I am really sorry and this is why I’ve come out in public to comment on this nonsense, so I can ask you to forgive me here on Instagram,’ he writes.
‘I’m so confused but I want to get you back #forgiveme #Iloveyou #comeback.’
Although he seems to have seen the error of his ways, pleading with his partner to take him back, an additional post reveals that she wasn’t all that forgiving.
‘Regardless, my relationship is over and I just have to continue. I regret what I did but I can’t beg for more forgiveness,’ he adds.
‘I will not fail again and I know I’m going to find a person who loves and accepts me.’
Safe to say, he’ll probably keep his affairs behind closed doors from now on.
Karma is a… well, you know.
