Its just fun to see something new and fun. Weddings have always been a little boring. This spices it up.

A story about this video was shown on our evening news here in Brisbane Australia last night. About a half-an-hour after the news I went online to watch it and it had over 4 million views!!!

But it was worth every minute of the video. What a laugh!!! It was great to see people enjoying life so much in front of their own family and friends, and now for all the world to see and laugh along with...

Absolutely enjoyable!

Ken

btw - MY 100th POST!!! Woo hoo!!!!!!!

This has to be one of the most fast growing videos on Youtube ever.

5 million views after 5 days? Are you kidding me?

Very awesome, a great celebration of the dance they are beginning. Certainly hope they spend 'forever on the dance floor' together.

I wasn't aware that people actually wanted their wedding to be a joke.

it's definetely different, unusual, edgy, fun, bold and entertaining.

But, Not one bit of that video potrayed a "joke".

I love it... How much FUN is that!

I thoroughly enjoy seeing people STEP OUT OF THE BOX!!! Tradition has it's place, but so do other things, like personality, creativity and originality...

My wedding wasn't quite THAT untraditional, but we did several things that had people aghast... Oh, well, it was OUR wedding, and they are our memories...

At the least it must have been really awkward for all of them that can't dance.

Awkward or not, they all participated, and yes, there were a few that couldn't dance well, but most did just fine. What I found impressive was that they all did participate, NOT because they were great dancers, but because it was important to the B&G. They didn't care if they weren't the best dancers, they did it anyway. That is what I call LOVE.

I watched that and what I saw was a bunch of friends who loved the B&G enough to throw all caution to the wind and give them the celebration they wanted. If we all had friends like that this would be a different world...
