KJ Apa, Camila Mendes unveil the ‘new normal’ for makeout scenes on ‘Riverdale’

KJ Apa and Camila Mendes recently gave ‘Riverdale’ fans the rundown of their pre-show sanitization routine, via a lengthy video.

Taking to Instagram, the two highschool sweethearts shared what it takes to shoot a make-out scene in COVID-19 era.

The video in question features a lengthy view of the 30-second mouth wash routine required before each scene. In the video, both stars can be seen gurgling back liquid which they took in via tiny blue cups. 

Not only that, after each gargle the remnants of the back-wash were spewed back into a disposable zip-lock bag, via gloved handlers to maintain sanitary conditions and to curtail the spread of the disease amid the highly isolated cast members. 

AJ uploaded the video with a caption that read, "our new normal is washing our mouths before every take of a make-out scene..." even Mendes reposted the video with a "Bottoms up!" emoji.
