Weddings always bring their own brand of chaos, and there’s a whole subset of videos on YouTube dedicated to fails and faux pas.
This one, however, stands apart from the rest due to the double comedy of it all.
First, some background courtesy of NewsAU.
The wedding happened outdoors and the day was hot and long. Temperatures in Washington, where the wedding took place, reach around 30 degrees, so they’re pretty high.
Add standing for a long time in a suit into the mix and you have the perfect storm.
There’s one more ingredient, which I’m sure contributed to what you’re about to see.
The world’s worst and most awkward serenade:
I don’t think it was the heat. I think he passed out halfway through the song in self-defence.
The bride and groom are Tyanna and Denis Vakulchik, and their attempts to look moved by that song were impressive.
Swaying slightly, Jestin turns to rub his face discretely and compose himself.
It’s clear he’s not feeling well, but he bravely soldiers on in the blistering heat.
As Saung sings “I get to love youuuu”, Jestin dips his head and, as if in slow motion, drops to the ground like a dead weight.
“His knees basically locked up and he fell,” Denis said.
“We had just stepped away two minutes before and he collapsed where I was standing before.
“I couldn’t believe it had happened.”
In the midst of the chaos, the singing bridesmaid looks on, wiping tears from her eyes after her performance was interrupted.
According to Denis, Tyanna had been upset at the time because “that’s all everyone talked about after it happened”.
“But mainly we were both shocked and worried that he had really hurt himself,” he said.
I’d he really wants to make it up to them, I’d suggest he get them the kind of wedding gift that bucks the trend.
Although you’d think stopping that song would be present enough.
