Now that it’s so cheap and easy to make videos and post them online, there’s a trailer for everything: Lady Gaga albums, Thomas Pynchon novels (Is that Tommy Chong narrating?) … and, inevitably, weddings. Most of these “Save the Date” videos are as as precious as you’d expect — a couple gushing about their first date, bragging about their unique and timeless love and making out in front of pretty scenery. There have also been the obligatory “Single Ladies” ripoffs, the awkward attempts to be funny and irreverent and even the occasional quirkily adorable clips. Hell, one photographer has even made a trailer for her wedding trailer business.
Thankfully, at least some good has come out of this annoying trend. Allow me to present “Jeff & Erin’s EPIC Wedding Trailer,” for your Friday afternoon viewing pleasure. I won’t ruin the awesomeness by trying to describe it. But rest assured, the title doesn’t oversell the video at all. Just watch:
