It should be noted up front: If you are ever at a wedding, whether it be yours, a friend’s, or a total stranger’s, never attempt to draw attention away from the bride. It’s her day. Even if you’re the groom, you are still merely a spectator on your own wedding day. That is how the world works.
Don’t be loud. Don’t be obnoxious.
Don’t get too drunk. Be mindful of how drunk you are. And never, ever, do a fucking backflip on the dance floor.
Basically, don’t be this guy:
I could litter this post with 250 words about why this abortion of a dance routine happened. I could tell you a funny story about a wedding I attended last March where a groomsmen was asked to leave after vomiting on a child. I could try to analyze every part of this jump to find the exact point where everything at this wedding went to shit. But none of that would be worth it, because it would take time away from watching, and re-watching, and then re-re-watching this video to soak in all of its unparalleled hilarity.
I just want to point out, as was pointed out to me by Will deFries, that the offender in this video went out of frame to get a running start before crushing this poor woman. Nothing good comes from going out of frame, gentlemen. Always stay in frame at a wedding. .
