Kissing couple fail to notice armed thugs holding up barman

A young couple in the US state of Montana were so busy making out that they didn't notice a nearby barman was being robbed at gunpoint.

The incident took place at the Tap Inn in Billings earlier this week.

The pair were kissing and cuddling just metres from the unlucky worker, who was ordered to empty the till by three people holding weapons.

At one stage one of the thugs walks past the couple, but it is not until the trio have left the scene that they end their passionate display and notice the distressed barman.
