Planning a wedding can’t be easy. From the invites to the ceremony to the reception, there’s always a detail that can be tweeked or altered to improve the experience and memories. Hell, I’m freaking out about what I’m supposed to wear to a wedding in October and I really have nothing to do with it, but that’s neither here nor there.
A Canadian couple had the genius idea of having a fucking owl be there ringbearer for the occasion, and it really couldn’t have gone worse. Per Mashable:
The bride at this wedding really, really likes owls, so the couple decided to incorporate the majestic bird into their ceremony, according to the YouTube description.
Now the owl, named Max, was supposed to deliver the rings, but instead Max saw an opportunity at freedom, and flew into the large window above the couple.
See for yourself.
Now let me say this — if that owl died, this story is sad. Animals dying is more sad than humans dying and that’s just a fact of life. But if that owl simply got knocked unconscious, this video is incredibly watchable and needs to be turned into a Vine that I can watch on repeat without having to press the replay button. I, myself, have attempted to help many a bird back to life after they headfirst into a window, so we know it’s possible that this owl lived with a little CPR and some love.
Godspeed, owl. .
