Now are you happy about this or frustrated ? Because this is pretty fuckin hilarious
we were very tickled :)
That's because I was tickling them.
That's because I was tickling them.
When you were created, were you given two test-tickles?
I'm surprised at your knowledge of my creation. I did indeed receive test-tickles. My testicles were removed so my voice is higher and more appealing to children.
Oh god, they're multiplying
Tickle me, EccentricElmo!
Could you point him out please? Lost him in that sea of color!
Aren’t you just tickled about it? :)
No, no, Elmo is the ticklee not the tickler.
Your uncle lied to you that night in the closet.
Elmo strikes again
How can I get on that train?
it's my video from Twitter, I don't know who the gif OP is. https://twitter.com/mollandra/status/1181786200555839489?s=21
It’s the wedding night. Brought to you by the number 69
This guy thinks you get oral after you're married!
Loool that tweet - "I've sold out and I'm proud" made me crack the fuck up. Too cute
Yes! I'm so happy to find you on the thread. Yeah this is quite hilarious. Do you think it was some kind of accident? Like maybe he added that for his own entertainment, but forgot to remove it on the final cut?
no, there were actually like 6 cuts like this. the others were Disney clips and some weird borders.
That wasn’t too much? I feel this would make me laugh if it happened to me but Idk if I’d want that many random cuts
Whaaat hahaha he's lucky the clients (your parents) were chill about it!
ctrl + f: Source, original video
Doing God’s work, son.
Did your parents think it was funny? Did y’all talk to the videographer about it?
Did you choose the song because of Princess Bride? Because if you did, you are awesome!
absolutely they did!
I'm in a meeting right now so can't turn on sound, but if it's the song "Storybook Love" from The Princess Bride, that was the song I walked down the aisle to! It's my favorite movie.
It is! And you are also awesome!
Thank you! I just listened to the song and didn't realize there were lyrics! Mine was the instrumental version by Vitamin String Quartet.
Op is a bundle of sticks is what he is
Your laugh (or whoever that was) made my whole day. I mean, I giggled at the video but that made me LOL for real.
What did he record it with? An RCA VHS camcorder?
Wedding videography has come a long way since then.
No top but okay? Is that like a sex thing?
Not OP but okay
Who isn't OP?
Wait Elmo was there too??
Very important puppets.
Very Important Muppets
You win. No on knows it, but you have won
Hey! You're not OP!
I saw this vid on Twitter a few hours ago so most likely not OPs
Definitely not OPs if you watch the history of that account.
No but it's u/mollanj 's video and they're in the comments
He never said it was his and, in fact, has given proper credit.
You should see the divorce video.
Statler and Walforf heckling the couple from the box seats
Replace the judge with sam eagle, and bailiff with sweetums.
Involves scissors and glue.
Id give them a bonus then fire them.
Until they realize that he also swapped the end of the ceremony footage with "Because you share a love so biiiiig, I now pronounce you... frog and piiiiiig"
I feel like the videographer probably does this for people they feel have a good sense of humor and would enjoy it. If they don't, just make another video without that edited in, or they probably just give the serious, non-funny edit alongside the funny one. That's just my assumption.
this is my Twitter! and my parents!
edit: I appreciate everyone's concerns about karma but it's super not a big deal. [edited to remove info] just be good to each other, watch the star wars episode of the Muppet show, and tell your family you love them :) ok pce
my sister shared your video with me, it is indeed funny. thank you for that. if you want me to remove it let me know
Link to original tweet
no need! if you're able it would be great if you could edit the post and link my original tweet but no biggie :)
I’d love to change it, but reddit don’t have edit button for title. Sorry
that's what I thought, it's no problem!
Grab your torch and pitchforks
Nothing will quench my outrage until blood is shed
A red sun rises.
Blood has been spilt this day.
In this yard on the day of my parents' marriage.
With the muppets in attendance.
We raid Reddit?
Neigh! We ride!
I dont have a horse
I have nipples. Can you ride me?
None of us do
You can use mine. My raiding trousers are in the wash so I can’t participate
Redditors! Tonight, we dine in Hell!
r/pitchforkemporium I got mines ready.
OP is a Big Fat Phony
What a nice little interaction 🙃 everyone check out the original tweet!
You can't tell me what to do
I noticed you also sold your rights to Storyful. That company is terrible. I regret selling my only popular video to their domaine.
oh no! any more info?
Not really, they will stop sending you statements after about a year. You can only collect that money after it has reached a certain amount of revenue. My video in particular has 1.1 Million views and I haven’t seen a time from them. I just sold it out of excitement at the time.
I did the same. kicking myself!
Wait until you see it on popular Facebook pages with no credit. MrTechnicalDifficulty posted my video refused to contact or reply to me.
But anyways, best of luck to ya
upvoting to reach the top!
You can make a new comment stating the original, people always upvote that quick.
You don't have track record of attributing the source so don't feign your apology.
You can make a comment with a link to the video on their Twitter!
Unfortunately it's impossible to edit posts or titles after they've been submitted. Closest you can get is just replying to a top level comment going "Ay that's my video"
*Text submissions however can be edited, but still not the titles
Upvoted. Send this shit to the #1 spot folks
Don't worry this comment is high enough up. Also none of the 1000s of reposts will have it.
Oh God that squeal was perfect
I watched the Reddit version and chuckled. Then I watched your tweet with your squealing laugh and I DIED LAUGHING. It really makes it even better lol.
Worth it just to hear the squeak
Your cackle 😂😂😂
I'm one of the parents!
I too am the parents!
We're ALL the parents on this blessed day.
Speak for yourself!
I am all parents on this blessed day :)
Look here you little shit...
I am NOT paying child support
I thought I was the parents?
THEN WHO WAS PHONE!?
I think mr bean was the phone
I'm Ron Burgundy?
No, I'm Spartacus!
this really is my dad everyone!
What is the real story here?? Where your parents upset, find it funny?
I'm the groom. We were not mad at all. We took it as just a sweet goofy thing. We asked for the ending credits of the video to include titles like "Underwater Photography" and "Read the novelization", so we weren't really taking this thing super-seriously.
I’m one of the muppets intercut in the video. The bride and groom seemed pretty happy.
I'm Animal, the drummer in the wedding band.
The after party was wild. Tell the bridesmaids I never forgot about that wild night - it was so wild, I got clean.
Be Sam the Eagle or get the fuck out.
This comment tree is evolving to the perfect caricature of reddito comment and posting culture: fakes everywhere.
I thought it was one of those things where nobody ever watches their wedding day video, it just sits in a closet somewhere, so the videographer was doubling down on it.
Could be for all I know. I remember being asked for childhood pictures and song choices, but not if they should randomly intercut Muppet footage. Also in the vid, Genie from Aladdin, various Disney farm animals dancing and Sleeping Beauty.
Was the videographer paid? (I'm also an occasional wedding videographer who's done some creative editing
So how much was the Scuba cameraman an hour?
In hindsight, too much. I didn't realize we were landlocked when I hired him.
Why does everything look like it happened in the 90s?
Because it's their 25th wedding anniversary and math tells me that this must have happened in the 90s then.
Hmm I guess information has been trickled through in different places
It's in the Twitter thread linked in the parent comment. By all appearances (going on location) the guy you responded to really is the groom. The daughter mentions that it's their 25th wedding anniversary. The father mentions that they watched the video on their first anniversary so I'm guessing watching it is something of a tradition for them.
I'm the groom/Dad. All pretty much on the nose. It's our 25th anniversary, the kids watched the video with us and cackled thru most of it.
We rarely watch the video, only milestone anniversaries, really, and even then we fast-forward through most of it. It is just another thing on the Plex. :-)
Jesus, this is definitely a first for me. Haha wtf makes someone think to post there venmo for something so stupid.
hahaha omg you're right
She seems to be taking full advantage of this going viral. She added an email address for licensing and also her Venmo name under the original tweet as well lmao. Some people are just greedy
what would you rather I do in this situation? genuinely wondering :) the licensing group reached out to me. they turned out to be largely a scam. we certainly didn't expect any of the virality nor do we expect any money going forward. venmo was posted by request! what would have been a better move?
Not mad at all. We thought it was sweet. Only on Reddit do people draw the conclusion "the video guy was calling the bride Miss Piggy" ;-)
I think he called your whole family a muppet. No tip for him lol!
There are worse things to be called, I suppose. :-)
Gordon Ramsey doesn't seem to think so! lol
Or Alec Baldwin!
I think I would've cried laughing, it's fantastic!
This is Reddit. We don’t plug our Venmo here :)
sorry! I'm a lurker, not up w the etiquette. folks asked in PMs about making up for lost karma and that was the best way I knew how - giving my parents a nice night out :) absolutely no obligation
MY VIDEOGRAPHER DID THE EXACT SAME THING. Only difference is we DID walk down the aisle to the song that is playing in THE MUPPETS TAKE MANHATTAN in that scene. Still did it without our permission and it was at the sacrifice of actual footage from our wedding. We had him redo it.
Why did you record a horizontal display vertically?
it was on Snapchat. I have few regrets.
Your laugh is contagious, thanks for sharing.
Hey I went to high school with you!
Props to you for using your exposure from this tweet to plug charities in your follow up tweet, you’re the real MVP!
They might have done this a dozen times before and none of those customers caught it yet because nobody actually ever bothers watching these videos.
hollywood tells me that wedding videos are only watched when your spouse dies and you have a bottle of whiskey next to you
"honey, if you're seeing this, they already got me..."
The CIA wants to know your location
I would also be interested in that information.
Relevant user name! Gasp!
Ahh hello there Samuel L Salad
Do you take requests?
Do you like just wake up in the morn and just say to yourself “today is a good day for a murdurin’”
Or do you have to have coffee first?
I, too, choose his dead wife
>Implying they don't already know.
"I was murdered. I didn't actually Kermit suicide."
I'd arrange for a cutaway in my video where I speak directly to the camera in a somber voice saying "Honey, I just want to say I'm sorry. Everything will be ok, and just know that I will always love you."
Then I carry on with the rest of the wedding procession.
Next time she views the video will either be when I'm dead, or I've done something really wrong.
"If I'm dead, you guys have been dead for weeks."
Sitcom cliches tells me wedding videos only exist to be recorded over by shitty husbands who want to record THE BIG GAME.
The funniest thing about that trope is that VHS tapes have a tab you can remove to prevent recording over them.
Huh TIL. I remember seeing the tab now that you mention it and never put that together.
I used to tape over the broken-away tab on weird videos from the thrift store and insert my own scenes. I gotta try and find some of those again!
Be kind, rewind
You could put tape over that and record over stuff. I always broke it off after my brother taped over my copy of who framed roger rabbit.
Yeah but that turns it from a trope of the husband accidentally doing it to something malicious.
Back when recording the BIG GAME was the only way to delete your porn
those little bits that still survived between the commercials somehow
Surely you don't mean THE GAME?
On the topic of things that should be known but aren't: The inside of your driver door says the recommended tire pressure for the car.
to record THE BIG GAME
to record THE BIG GAME
Which also probably will never get watched again!
While tumbling the ring in your hands
And your dead spouse suddenly remembers he's dead
With’Unchained Melody’ playing
Then it cuts to a dead spouse workout montage with Push it to the Limit as they become a buff ghost.
And that guy in the hair piece, that was Bruce Willis the whole movie.
Wait holy shit
And then they walk in and they're okay and you're so happy to see them... until the illusion stirs and you wake up, drink warm in your hand, static on the screen.
I don't think I've ever seen my full one, but my wife definitely has at least a couple times and I don't even want to know how many times my mom has seen it.
Back in the day, your wedding video might be the only video recording you had of your spouse. My wife and I are old enough that we kind of missed the boat on social media and other than our wedding video, I can't think of many other things I could watch to see her if she passed.
Your wife isn't even dead and this made me sad.
Or when discovering that half of it was filmed over when recording the Sound of Music on TV or something.
Or if it’s time for the wife to find out the husband’s best friend is actually in love with her
boy would that be an opportune time to discover your videographer's sense of humor.
And are contemplating suicide.
But then you start contemplating vengeance.
which is exactly why it's the perfect opportunity for a little comic relief
Or when they divorce you and you are watching in a dark room with a bottle of vodka on your would-be anniversary
Or when your photographer drops off the face of the Earth without notice and you never get any of your photos.
my mother kept watching my her wedding tape over and over again throughout the divorce while crying and drinking wine. After my father cheated on her.
Or if Kiera Knightly is super into watching the video IMMEDIATELY for some reason.
I've seen mine a couple times because the family kept wanting to watch.
Or when the wife randomly decides it would be romantic to watch it only to find it's been recorded over by the husband. If you want to go the comedic rout..
As a wedding videographer, let me fill you in on what happens. The wedding happens, two days later they're blowing up your phone asking when it'll be done. They get the video they watch it once, they contact you talking about how amazing the video is and it's perfect and they're in love with it. Then two days go by and you get a message saying "Actually, I was wondering if you could change..." with a list of 100 shots that want changed, taken away, added, etc.
Then you point them to the contract they signed saying they can only make 3 changes within reason. They get the final video, they never watch it again for the rest of their lives.
Edit: since this is gaining a little traction, I’d like to clarify that this is a stereotype and not always true. Video is a unique and impactful way to capture your wedding day, and there are some people who watch their wedding video years on. But this is how many client interactions go for me.
That's why I only make 10 minute long video. And that's where there is enough material to cover 10 minutes. 6 minutes is plenty. They are much more likely to watch it on a whim by streaming it from youtube than a 1 hour documentary that has no beat to it.
Yeah I do highlight videos that are 4-8 minutes long. This is my most recent one.
Oh my god that cannot be the real number of Groomsmen at 1:48ish... I don't even have that many friends
edit: also what a snag by the dude at 6:20, and the stare down... why am I watching this (very well done though)
Right??? I actually shot a wedding this past weekend and the bride had TWELVE bridesmaids. I felt bad for the photogs who were trying their best to cram them all into one shot. Some people get carried away lol.
Isn't it interesting how many different combinations there are?
Have you had Groomsmaids or Bridesmen recently? First time I had that was a dude who wanted his two sisters to stand with him as Groomsmaids, and the Bride wanted her own sister and best friend. Super interesting. Since then, I have had the combination in all sorts of ways. It has been catching on.
Yeah actually funny you mention that my “best man” is a woman. Calling her the best gal lol. It’s definitely becoming more common!
legit they had almost as many people on the stage as in the audience
I don't know if they like it that you linked the privated video of their wedding to reddit. Making it practically mot private anymore
It’s not private it’s unlisted. Also, no videos or photos I take for my business are private and this is listed in the contracts signed by my clients. It’s my work and I have creative freedom to do with it as I please. No client has ever had an issue with that.
Got married a couple of months ago and that's in our contract too. Essentially, both parties can use the video as we please, only my wife and I can't make money off of it.
Fuck that. Even if it's incredibly unlikely to matter, if I'm paying thousands of dollars to have a video made, I'm not signing away my right to make money off of it.
That would actually be cool. Not only would you be the one getting married, but you'd be filming the wedding from your POV as well.
That's odd they cant make money off of their wedding video they probably paid quite a lot for, why is that?
Same reason you’re not supposed to pirate a movie. It’s my work, and through the contract I am basically selling them rights to the work. This gives them free reign to use the work as they’d like, but they cannot profit off of it.
Our 25 year old wedding video (see above) has a 6 minute highlight reel at the end. No Muppets in the recap, tho.
I feel you. I got started on weddings but have grown out of it. They have so many demands. It's just not worth it.
I feel for those people offering wedding videogeaphy for 500 on thumbtack.
Yeah I used to do it full time, but I had to stop. Even though there’s so much money in it, it’s not worth it to me. I’m not built for it.
Also, yeah fuck that lol.
Honestly, I don't understand the current trend of wedding videographers. Like why would you spend $1k+ for someone to take video, something that might get watched a half dozen times after the day? Meanwhile still photos people print out, set at profile pictures, create photo albums that get passed down, etc.
It's one thing if the photogtapher sets up a single camera during the ceremony on a tripod and it's an added $100-200 bonus or something. But most of the weddings I've been at I've seen people dedicated to video the entire day.
And I've personally shot (still photography) a handful of weddings and DJ'd a large number as well (yay for being multi-talented). I know for our wedding in the coming year, video won't be a concern for me.
My wife wanted a videographer at our wedding and I agreed. We've watched the video once since then. Our first anniversary is coming up and I'm gonna make damn sure she watches it again. Set a reminder in my phone and everything. I'm getting my money out of that shit.
My wife used to make us watch it on our anniversary. It was just boring to me. Like, I was there, I remember it. I'm sure our kids will pull it out and watch it in 30 years or something, it might be interesting then.
watching my parents wedding video has never once crossed my mind
When they're dead and you're going through their shit and come across it, you won't be curious?
No, only curious about their sex tapes.
I'm also curious about professorsnapeswand's parent's sex tapes.
You watch their video on their anniversary as well?
How raunchy is this tape, can i see?
He also chooses that guy's wife.
I’m getting married in May, and I was wavering about hiring a videographer. I think this is a really sweet idea, and definitely makes me want to have one!
I just got married a couple of months ago and I'm surprised at the anti Videographer sentiment here. I haven't received our video yet, but we're both super excited to get it and watch it. We even made sure to request all of the raw footage as well, so we get the entire unedited day, apart from the 10 minute highlight reel.
wow, your videographer let you guys get raw footage? That’s a chunk of memory right there. Why the unedited footage if you don’t mind me asking?
I’m engaged and we just booked our videographer. I’m sure we’ll be in the same boat.
I'm an unmarried 21 yo but I figure if you're even on the fence then go for it bc you'll only have one chance to get your marriage on video and it'd really suck to regret it.
Well I’m engaged and completely agree with your sentiments. No regrets- some people attending might not ever be on tape again!
Well apparently in Ireland 50% list not getting a videographer as their biggest wedding regret.
Look I know it’s an expense but you will have it for the rest of your lives. There might be family and friends in it too that you might not ever have video of again.
I watched my parents one this summer with them and my girlfriend. It was adorable honestly.
I'm hoping you watched it immediately after you and your gf became official
Its because some jackass is standing in front of the cameraman.
Lol I’ve never watched mine!
I hope what happened is the the photographer got shorted on his price and thought fuck it your not going to pay me all my money, here’s the video of your muppet wedding.
But that can be edited out though. What would tough is leaving voices in
Make video cuts with the muppet audio overlapping.
Make video cuts with the Fraggle Rock intro over clapping.
Make video cuts with it cutting to Kermit fapping.
That's Kermit's Two Girls, One Cup reaction video.
U can do it with Windows movie maker
Do you think "regular" people would even know where to start?
Groom in the video here. It's been 25 years, who remembers? I remember discussing song choices, collecting pictures from childhood, what we wanted in the ending credits scroll. I don't recall the "insert contextually relevant Disney/Muppet footage randomly throughout the video" but maybe it was there. Neither my wife nor I are upset about it in the least. We thought it was cute. (I think there were maybe 6 different inserts over the 2 hour video.)
If that's the case, I hope there are clips of heckling from Statler and Waldort.
My guess is they low-key called the bride Miss Piggy.
I just thought it was because the actual attendees weren't turning and looking, so he edited in some turning and looking.
years ago my sister went to Africa. While there she took an elephant safari where you ride elephants around for a bit. It was clearly made for tourists as they offered a VHS recording of the whole thing. She bought the VHS. When she came home we all sat down to watch it together. They included a cut kinda like that, but instead of muppets watching a wedding, it was a close up of the elephant shitting.
Your sister deserved it for riding elephants
Jesus. come off it. i rode one at the circus when i was like 4. am i bad person, too?
Edit: This is getting a lot of responses, but someone below me said it best. Life isn't so black and white. We can't all be expected to understand the complexities of animal captivity. Or, more than that, cling to some level of moral superiority for knowing better than someone else. "Your sister deserved it" is such a shit response. You don't get to take an event of someone else's life, paint a picture of them as some kind of jerk, while simultaneously being a jerk yourself. In the words of the dude, "you aren't wrong, you're just an asshole."
Elephants are not meant to have weight on their backs. Obviously people do it, but no one cares.
Pretty sure not a single animal is meant to have weight on its back
But how will the baby opossums get carried?
The same way I carry my teams in Battle Front, begrudgingly.
Horses weren't meant to, but physiologically can handle it fine. There are many problems beyond that though.
Well my son's school seems to not care with the 30 lb backpacks.
I'm not so sure the weight is so bad on the elephants scale. to a 5000-12000 lb creature a 500lb american human would be the equivelant of asking my 150 lb child to carry 10lbs.
That being said, I think the cruelty is more on the fact that elephants are near the top of the intelligence category... They understand almost everything, they communicate with eachother, they even morn their dead in the wild.
With their size, they also need a boatload of space not to feel crammed etc... Traveling circuses... by definition are almost always cramped quarters, it would be considered too small for a human, let alone an animal over 10 times the size of humans.
The reasoning is that an elephant's back is very boney. The tip of an elephant's back where you would sit on is essentially just its backbone (not a flat bed of bone + muscle like a horse or even a human). Generally though people are more concerned with the places that allow you to ride elephants. It's pretty well known that humans shouldn't be riding elephants, so places that treat the elephants well won't allow you to ride them. In contrast, if places are allowing tourists to ride them, it probably means they're also not treating the elephants well outside of that.
With that said, it seems like this has only been a well known fact among tourist in the last decade or so, so I think it's silly for people to judge people who rode an elephant 20 years ago when this knowledge wasn't so commonplace.
A police horse has a 6 foot dick on it's back, they must be heavy
what about a camel tho
Speaking of... do you know what day it is?
It is Wednesday my dudes. AAAAAAAAAA
For real, though.
Neither were horses.
Neither were humans. Yet each day I'm forced to carry the heavy load of my teammates in every game
You weren't an adult who had the ability to know how they're treated, so no
If you did it today, yes
You are bad at crafting analogies though, but great at feeling personally attacked
That's not an analogy. It's literally the same thing.
Me every time I do something wrong:
"But what if a 4-year old did it, huh? I bet you didn't think of that."
It's absurd the amount of people who have no idea what an apology is.
Anology* that's what I get for calling people out.
Oh yes, your character is inherently bad if you make one mistake.
I'm sure you also don't support the animal abuse in the animal slaughter industry nor do you buy anything that has directly harmed other people or animals.
Wait, you definitely have, but you're not a bad person because you didn't directly witness it.
The world isn't black and white, you can do "bad" things and be a good person.
The “bad person” thing was brought up by the guy defending riding elephants. You don’t get to excuse bad things by saying “one bad thing doesn’t make you a bad person.” That’s irrelevant.
It’s bad nonetheless, and your point only serves to distract from that fact.
Yes, the meat and dairy industry is terrible. That doesn’t make riding elephants acceptable.
No but circuses are shit and elephants at circuses are thankfully being banned
Yea you're right, if 4 year-old you did it it must be ethical. Everybody shut the fuck up, lets all just hold hands and curb stomp some puppies. I'd be down to club some seals or strangle some monkeys too. Actually once my niece spun a cat around by its tail helicopter style, she was like 6 so that must be fine too.
And when I was a kid I was too scared to ride it so I’m a good person, haha I win (I rode a camel instead)
am i bad person, too?
am i bad person, too?
Yes, we know what you did last summer.
The elephant thing is fine though.
It's the Catch-22 of if you want the elephants to have a safe way to live along humans without being hunted/ignored, they're gonna be monetized in this way instead.
There are plenty of non profit animal reserves that dont monetize the elephants. Elephant rides and how they are treated are a product of human greed not one of inevitability.
That's fine, I guess, but why do we have to catch 22 of them to do it?
Because basic economics
Pretty sure there are more than 22 elephants used for riding.
You need the ivory from the other 21
I'd rather be murdered than go through what they do to captive elephants.
I'd rather be murdered than go through what they do to captive elephants.
Oof, oh no, I didn't mean it like that.
what's... what's wrong with elephants being ignored? presumably they were doing fine before we showed up.
Yeah...what? Bahaha those are not the only two ways elephants can exist genius, good lord
If I had a dog fighting ring but donated all the proceeds to conservation or helping dogs or some shit does that mean dog fighting is okay?
Elephants have to be violently trained to accept riders, you can look this up yourself, the way elephants are treated for entertainment is barbaric.
Yes they do they also are intelligent animals that have to be abused in order to be ridden
Not all places test them poorly. Can't pass judgement without knowing where it happened
They’re abused while they’re “trained”. Any place that has elephants doing shit like that or painting or whatever is a shithole. If that company didn’t directly abuse them then someone down the line did.
How do you think other animals were trained?
It's like people don't know how the world works! Shocking!
Do you think you have to abuse a dog to train it how to sit?
It's fucked up what we do to them too...
You do realise that most training is reward based right?
You don't need to abuse animals to train them, as most animals are food/affection motivated.
What...? That’s a bad thing now? What’s next, we don’t ride horses?
I would show that video to everyone I know
Years ago, my family was on a safari trip in Africa. My cousin Mufasa had an an accident and was trampled to death by a pack of wildebeasts. We all took it very hard.
I’d tell you to share this story but it’d take about an hour and a half

Do you have his number? I’m getting married soon and it might not be too late to make my fiancée really mad one last time before we’re man and wife.
Garden State Video! this is 25 years old so not sure if they're still in business
well they have a youtube channel that only has 3 videos in the past 4 years, and one of them was within the past month. so worth a shot to try and contact them
it might not be too late to make my fiancée really mad one last time before we’re man and wife.
it might not be too late to make my fiancée really mad one last time before we’re man and wife.
Technically, the video will be shot at the wedding and edited after the wedding so you'll be man and wife by the time she sees it.
I gotcha! Just get me the clips u want me to use and I'll put it together for ya!
This deserves a Oscar. Brilliant editing.
Oscar was definitely there.
Lol bro... (slow clap)
underrated comment of the day.
I hope they weren’t mad about this! This is amazing
Agreed, I would find this hilarious and be thrilled. It would give me more of a reason to actually watch the wedding video again.
they were thrilled!
Probably asked the husband who said sure then when the wife freaked out and husband bailed on responsibility
absolutely not! completely a surprise.
it worked out bc the whole family are Muppet fans but could you imagine if we weren't 😳
Glad you enjoyed it but it’s definitely a huge gamble
The wedding is all about the bride
The wedding is all about the bride
Yours maybe. It absolutely doesn’t have to be though.
We decided against having a wedding video, and instructed our photographer that we only wanted casual photos, except for one large group one with the entire wedding party.
Most of our photos are great, and I'm certain we never would have watched the video after the first time, so that was money well saved. My only regret is that the group photo is still slightly casual (as per our overall instructions to be fair) and so not everyone is doing the same thing, and it kinda looks like my wife has just married my best man.
We rarely watch, but when we do, it's nice to see the folks we've lost since then. My wife lost her Dad a number of years back, so it's nice to see him and their dance brings a tear to the eye. So financial value is tough to measure. It's not like we're forced to watch it; it sits on the Plex with a bunch of other stuff gathering digital dust; but on milestone anniversaries we'll FF thru it for a few minutes. Last night was the first night our daughters saw it, and being young and hip, they laughed and Snapchatted and Tweeted it out, and here we are.
That's touching, thanks for sharing
We were lucky in that the church was already set up for video as we recorded every service so it didn't cost much. And the sound guy was a guest so he just took over and videoed for us. I think I've seen the video once since 2006
It is almost 2020 and people still record things off the horizontal TV vertically.
And then zoom out to fit it all in.
And from across the room
I have no idea if this was his AHA moment of creativity or a sweet revenge because the newlyweds were assholes.
Seriously asking. Who watches their marriage video after getting married?
I'd assume the people dropping $2500 $4500 on a photo package
I get that there are plenty of cynical Redditors in this thread but it's really stupid to think nobody looks at their wedding photos.
A really well done video is 100% worth rewatching and sharing with your family.
My fiancée and I were looking through videographers and a trend I’m seeing is they edit the whole thing into a few minutes long video and also give you the raw footage for your personal use and so you have everything.
I imagine people would rewatch the shorter one more often than several hours of footage.
As a photographer/video editor:
I took 275 photos a few days ago. Only ~8 I kept and only 2 that I'm going to sell
Same with video. I'll take three hours worth of footage of my own stuff and it gets edited down to five to ten minutes. Lol I had 300gigs worth of gaming video on my PC at one point and I had probably actually used less than 5gigs worth.
The raw footage deal is what I would do if I did weddings. If for some reason they want more versions of it or whatever they can go through another cheaper editor.
Dude there are cynical redditors everywhere. Everyone is always bitter about something here .
25th anniversary warranted a rewatch :)
Did you not discover it until your 25th anniversary?
it's my parents' wedding, not mine! they saw it when they watched it like 24 years ago but I had never seen it until last night.
Next to no one. It's usually brought out on milestone anniversaries, and even then, we usually FF thru it. First time we watched all two hours since our first anniversary, I'd wager.
Somebody's getting marriiiiiiiied!
Came looking for this comment 😂
I want this song played as people are being seated at my wedding. It has been my dream since I was a child. Getting married next Halloween, so there is plenty of time to convince the fiancé!
Well I mean it looks like you played the music, lit the lights, you put on makeup, and got dressed up right...
Erstwhile TV editor chiming in... given that this is video tape rather than digital, I bet the muppet footage was put in as a placeholder to indicate what kind of shot should be there because they hadn't finished ingesting/transferring the crowd footage yet. All it takes is one distraction and the placeholder stays in the edit forever... not that I've ever spat out a "finished" advert with a hasty phone shot of a biro sketch halfway through it. Nope. Not at all.
Yeah this is absolutely placeholder footage. “Insert crowd standing up and turning around here.” Before digital it was way more difficult to “skim” a 60-minute edit for stuff like this.
I mean I wouldn't be mad.
I’ve watched it 10 times now and don’t see what’s wrong....
I’d fucking pay money for the muppet wedding to be spliced into a boring-ass wedding video my family made me get
Oh, hope you called him afterwards. I'd be pissed off. Like if I put in all that extra work and finesse and didn't get paid extra for my stellar editing work. Man, I'd be angry.
You're kidding right?
I just woke my wife up at 4am laughing to this. I laughed for about 5 mins non stop 😂
Because you share a love so big
I now pronounce you frog and pig!
I see Nothing wrong here
Consider yourself lucky for the bonus work they did for you
This needs to be an official wedding package.
I would pay extra for that. Absolutely
As a videographer myself, this is art. I wouldn't have the balls to do this shit, client would probably blast through the door and call me an asshole right away.
As someone who recently did a wedding video edit as a favor (wasn’t paid) I can attest to the fact that these videos can be really hard to get through.
I actually did a bunch of really weird edits in the wedding video I did just for fun, and recorded them, (but I didn’t leave them in.)
A few examples:
A guy was walking past the window they were cutting their cake in front of as they cut the cake, I did a zoom on the guy as he awkwardly walked by.
Did a zoom-in on my face during the group shot.
One part of the ceremony took about 5 minutes, and was mostly a cute little moment between the bride and groom as everyone sort of watched them be cute. I cut between the beginning and end with a title that said “3 hours later.”
The bride actually thought the edits were hilarious when I showed them to her later, so it was all good. :) Again, I didn’t leave them in the video, I just through them in for fun.
yt channel pls
I bet Kermit is furious.
This has to be a home video. Even without the edit, the quality is not good. Unless it's old and someone edited it after the fact.
Shot in 1994; digitized from second generation (first generation VHS master) in probably 2008. SVHS quality was not particularly great. Zoomed Handheld Snapchat video of a TV then coverted to GIF doesn't do it any favors.
I was guessing mid 90's based on the hairstyles alone.
Kermit and Piggy should check to see if they got the cut with your guests in their wedding video. These mix ups happen.
is there a sound version? the camera movement suggests there would be some choice audio to go with this.
We're very happy with the product they delivered, so they were paid in full.
Someone tip this man
A surprise, to be sure, but a welcome one.
Is there a business card for this guy?
Who are they and do the do funerals? Asking for science reasons.
I can already see it...
Sitting by a cozy fire with my hypothetical lover. Thinking of how small and humble out wedding was, yet everyone had plenty to eat and drink.
Then, as my wife starts walking down the isle, she starts tearing in person... remembering of when her father gave her away... then all of sudden...
We can't assume the videographer didn't consulted with them. Maybe they thought it would be a nice joke.
I hope you gave him a good tip.
Maybe they didn’t, that’s why he did this.
I'd be so happy if this happened to me.
Lol. Did you pay them on time? This almost seems to comical for it to not be a revenge ploy.
Id honestly just leave it be so they can tell their kids later and they’ll totally buy it for like 9 years
They must have pissed the videographer off pretty severely for them to do this.
Anybody gonna say anything about the other lady in white?
I bet I know what happened.
"Nobody ever watches these"
"what are you talking about, it's a wedding video. This is going to be watched hundreds of times"
"nah ah. People say they watch it but they never actually do"
"I mean... I'm like 90% sure you're wrong. I wonder if there's any way we can be sure"
I get that some people enjoy having stuff like this taped, but I would never ever go back and watch it. So what’s the point? I’m sure I miss out on a certain amount of enjoyment feeling that way, but I can’t help it. Nobody else wants to see it either.
Wedding photos & videos may be enjoyed by people more regularly, but I think they're best enjoyed wayyyyyyyyyyyyy in the future. If I could watch my grandparents getting married right now, you bet your ass I would. I love looking at old photos of my family, including people I never met (great grandparents, etc.) - it helps me connect my parents' stories to faces and makes me feel linked to our history.
Huh - never thought of it like that. Thanks for the perspective.
Vertical video of a horizontal screen? How difficult is it to hold a rectangle? Especially without shaking it?
this is the first time in my life that i have read the word videographer...
As someone looking to get into wedding videography - this is brilliant.
A man of culture
Haha I hope they get the original too or they would probably be mad.
I would be ecstatic if I was OP
I'd be a little pissed initially, then find it funny as fuck for the rest of time. Definitely a very unique wedding video.
If i was a videographer I'd have this in there as a joke then pull out the official unedited one. This is A+ though.
Aaaand the number one reason to tip your vendors.
Hey maybe credit the OP??? https://twitter.com/mollandra/status/1181786200555839489?s=21
NGL, that's outstanding work.
I don’t see anything gone wrong here
Poor videographer might have had a bit too much to drink when he was editing, or maybe took an Ambien and didn't go right to bed! I think it's pretty damn creative and cool and where as most people never watch or talk about their wedding video ever again, this will be a topic of conversation for the rest of your lives. Pretty damn cool.
This was hands down the best wedding in film history. I've always planned to have guests sing the entire song at my wedding.
Watch the whole thing. I dare you not to cry.
Threw it in for free, you guys are lucky
The videographer probably has a standard video they make, and likely used random clips in a base video to remind themselves of the order. This was probably left in because they forgot to replace those clips with actual ones.
I would find this hilarious but I would totally understand if it would piss someone off.
These might just be filler until the editor can find the actual footage.
Otherwise it's hilarious.
Please tell me you accepted this addition?
Thank him. Pay him in full.
I'd pay extra for that.
My brother did something like this. He was asked by a friend to record a couples first moments with their new born baby and he slowly zoomed in on the baby, but continued to zoom in past the baby to a sandwich on the table next to the bed over the course of like a minute.
Looks like something they would do to ensure they dont skip out on the payment.
You cry, and then you cry again.
I fucking love this lol
I don’t see anything wrong with this
Ha this is fucking awesome.
Section II, Subsection D clearly states:
The muppets will be removed upon receipt of final payment.
Take away the positive we're all laughing.
As an editor that's something I might've done as a separate clip to send IF I felt like the humour was welcome. And no extra charge. And if I go through the trouble to make an extra meme clip to send to the couple then it means I was in a flow, and still passionate about what I do. In a twisted way.
I hope this didnt ruin your wedding video lol.
Didn't ruin it at all. We had no idea they were going to be edited in. We had asked for things like "Underwater Photography" and "Read the Novelization" in the ending credits, so we didn't take any of it very seriously and weren't upset by the Muppets' inclusion.
Hahah, well then I'm happy for you and congratulations on your wedding!
My wedding video does too (20 years ago). I thought it was cute
You mean because he made it 10x better?
He made an executive decision and it played off.
That was the loudest I have laughed in a solid month. Thank you for sharing this with the world.
This is epic
Thats what you get for not tipping!
My fiancé and I are crying, absolutely just dying laughing about this. Honestly hope our videographer has the balls to pull a stunt like this OH MY GOSH 💀💀💀💀
The videographer just called them a bunch of muppets.
The bride is Miss Piggy
looks like the actual footage was pretty garbage.
muppet b-roll works nicely here.
It was from 1994' Everything was garbage. But ultra-zoomed handheld snapchat video converted to GIF certainly doesn't do it any favors.
God I hope those video images are not copyrighted.
I feel like this is one of those things I’d laugh at but my SO would not be amused.
Is there no sound or my phone just can't? I want to hear it!
I HATE puppets/muppets so this would infuriate me
I love the muppets SO much that at our wedding this summer, my love of the muppets was mentioned in my husbands vows and my sisters moh speech...so obviously I would have been more than okay with this addition to the video. :)
Hold up what?
Reminds me of the time I composited a bluray out of 20 years of never-watched family home videos.
There was one moment when the camera guy was recording a scene at a camping park. Family members were swimming in the local lake. There was a shot of some kid swimming towards the camera, half-submerged. After a few seconds, he came up for air.
I couldn't help myself. I cut in with a shot of Chief Brody fixating his attention on this unidentified swimming object, only to sheepishly relax in relief when it turned out to be just a swimmer.
Videographer of the year
Can’t even be mad at that. Only sad that the people weren’t as excited as the puppets
When you forget to also capture the crowd reaction shots so you improvise.
Looks like a job by J.J. Pepper.
Who's your videographer Michael J Fox?
Husband: I'll allow it.
That’s what happens when you get your stoner friend to record and edit your wedding video!
Have to admire the courage of their convictions.
I'm disappointed I'm already married, because I want to hire this person.
I love this so much
Looks like maybe the bride originally walked behind that guy standing in front of the camera and they were trying to edit around it
I would give him a bonus.
Videographer: Shit! I had to switch out batteries and didn’t get a crowd reaction shot.
Editor: I got you fam.
All I see is creativity and a recommendation from me for the wedding I will most likely never have.
