Seriously, what the hell is wrong with people?
Weddings have gone from doing the Thriller dance at your local RSL to actually re-shooting the Thriller film clip. You think I’m joking? Last month, I spent three hours removing werewolf make-up after my second cousin’s wedding.
I think people have watched so many movies that they actually believe that they can make their life into some terrible action/rom-com/extravagant steaming pile of garbage.
Salim Mahajer just had the “wedding of the century” over the weekend. Pretty big call when we’re only 15 and half years into a whole century.
Mahajer literally stopped traffic when he made his way through suburban Lidcome in the western suburbs of Sydney, as if Australia had just won the soccer World Cup. But Mahajer was just on his way to get married. There were dudes with drums, a zillion sports cars, four helicopters, a jet, the police, the works.
And he became a national news item.
Oh yeah, he also made this hilarious When Harry Met Sally/Terminator style courtship video. (Post continues after the video.)
Credit it to you, dude. I’ve seen legit Hollywood movies with less production.
By the way, can I get the name of your voice-over? I might need him for my 31st birthday party? I’m planning on riding a unicorn through a Westfield food court.
So, some guy loves his girl and gets married. Good for them. This happens every Saturday of the year.
Mahajer, why do you have to stop a whole suburb?
Why the hell do you need a sea-plane?
Are you trying to live out an episode of Duck Tales?
Mahajer, what does the fourth helicopter actually do?
If you have luxury cars, why do need a hundred motor-cycles?
Was your wedding Mad Max themed?
But what I really want to know is…since when did weddings become a Z-grade version of the Oscars?
I’m not against having a good time, but people at a wedding usually want the following:
A quick, tasteful cry as the bride walks down the aisle.
Poorly cooked steak/chicken.
Dance badly to the Grease Mega Mix.
