We’ve seen them perform live on numerous occasions, and now we can finally watch Monika Linkyte and Vaidas Baumila in the official music video for “This Time”. The clip premiered on the official LRT website today, and it’s probably the sweetest thing you’ll see all week.

Directed by Algina Navickaite, the video takes the form of a social experiment. Monika and Vaidas, accompanied by a group of musicians, gave a special live concert to an audience comprising of people who had never heard “This Time”. As part of the experiment, their reactions were filmed, and the result is three and a half minutes of heart-warming cuteness. Lots of cuddles, kisses and laughter ensue. And of course, the chemistry between Monika and Vaidas is sizzling, but then we’d expect nothing less.

“Lithaunia have a propaganda law similar to Russia’s”- erm, no. We DON’T have a propaganda law. We don’t have ANY law about gays. Some people here have very negative opinions about gays BUT a lot of people are cosmopolitan and they just don’t have who you are: gay or straight.

Did Monika and Vaidas change their positions? I mean the melody and harmony(I hope my English is right…); but this still sounds lovely :)))
I feel really normal when I saw the gay kiss 🙂 Just as same as the others ^^
All in all, good job and GO Lithuania!!! My love with you and with the lovely duet!

@D, Lovely Elhaida! – Thank you!!! I had no idea! The studio version is so lovely!!! The singers even have a sense of dynamics (loud and soft) and the harmonies are really, really wonderful. Best entry from Lithuania EVER. 😀

A cute song from cute singers with a cute video… They really deserve a “cute position”. I’d love to see them at 7th/8th…. Finally something good from Lithuania, a “cute place”…

Well done Lithuania. The video is different. It sounds strange, but there is something really attracts me to this song.

Alex – The studio version has already been released.

I thought the video was adorable and Monika & Vaidas are both very attractive lol. I also think it’s really cool they included a gay kiss in the video. Lithuania’s obviously a more conservative country but it shows they’re slowly turning around. A same-sex union bill is even in the works there (doubt it’ll be passed though). I’m gonna stop now though cuz I don’t wanna turn into one of those commenters constantly turning everything that has nothing to do with being gay into something gay-related lol.

MARIO WE’RE WAITING FOR YOU

Lithuania’s law can be *interpreted* as similar to Russia’s but I doubt it was meant that way.

Simply love them <3
P.S. and there are huge debates about that gay kiss in Lithuania, but hopefully it can help to raise awareness about LGBT issues in the country

Bold as usual for Lithuania this year. A loving kiss between two men. And a live performance for the music video. I’m still in eager anticipation for the studio version, of course.

Love the song! The music video was great as well, but I think the live performance is better, because Monika and Vaidas are both very charismatic people which can show when they’re moving around the stage instead of just sitting down. I really hope this qualifies this year and is defiantly one of if not the best Lithuanian entry to date.

Lithuania certainly does not have a propaganda gay law similar to Russia.

Soo cringey, as if real ‘social experiments’ weren’t bad enough, they had to fake one.
Probably the second worst music video to come out of eurovision since Monetta’s “Soshal” Network Song
