This Best Man Had A Mortifying Wardrobe Malfunction – And The Bride Couldn’t Cope With The Situation

When this best man stole the limelight from a bride and groom it was for the most hilarious reason. It all happened so fast but, luckily, the entire thing was caught on film. And sure enough, it soon became a viral sensation.

Being asked to be someone’s best man is a huge honor but there’s often quite a lot of work involved. From organizing the bachelor party to remembering to bring the rings to the ceremony, there’s a lot of scope for things to go wrong.

But for one best man in particular things went south – literally – for a totally unexpected reason. Unfortunately for him, the whole incident was captured on camera and uploaded to YouTube, where his red-faced moment was viewed over 20 million times.

The footage begins in the middle of the marriage ceremony. Standing at the altar are the bride and groom, the priest, one bridesmaid and the best man – the soon-to-be star of the show. Close family and friends are looking on from the pews.

There is anticipation in the air as the priest prepares himself to say a few words. But before he has a chance to say anything, something shocking happens. Out of nowhere, the best man suffers a severe and incredibly funny trouser malfunction. And no one saw it coming.

The incident is so unexpected that there’s a gasp from the pews as it happens. But the initial shock soon turns to laughter and before long the majority of the church guests are collapsing into fits of the giggles. No one is laughing harder than the groom.

That’s because in the middle of the ceremony the best man’s trousers suddenly dropped to the floor, leaving him standing in his boxers at the altar. With his striped trunks exposed in front of everybody, the groomsman had to quickly hoist the disobedient garment up again to save any further embarrassment.

“Oh shoot,” the best man says as he struggles to pull his trousers up. But the damage was already done – the groom is in hysterics. As the man fixes his misbehaving trews, the groom asks him “You got them?” at which point the ceremony begins again.

Except it doesn’t really. The groom finds the whole thing so funny that he calls out to someone in the pews; “Come up here and hold these,” he says, referring to his best man’s slacks. And then the priest, who can see that everyone is losing it, makes a hilarious statement.

“That’s why we have a happy and joyful wedding,” the priest announces to the congregation and laughter rings out across the church. The bride and the bridesmaid are seen giggling away, but it’s the husband-to-be who is struggling to hold it together the most.

Through his laughter, the groom says, “That’s classic!” before bursting out into giggles yet again. A moment later the priest tries to conduct the vows section of the wedding ceremony. But, perhaps unsurprisingly, it doesn’t quite go to plan.

It’s the bride’s turn first. But as she slides the ring onto her fiancé’s finger and tries to repeat a phrase after the priest, it all goes totally wrong. “As a sign of my love and fidelity,” are the words she tries to get out, but she can’t quite manage it before the giggles return in full force.

The bride eventually gets the line out and places the ring on her almost-husband’s finger. However, neither of them are able to keep a straight face. Both she and the groom are at the altar wiping their eyes – tears of laughter streaming down their faces.

Meanwhile, the best man is dabbing his eyes with a handkerchief, also finding the whole scenario highly amusing. Next, the camera gets a shot of the six bridesmaids sitting in the front row of the church. Needless to say most of them are falling apart, too.

But it’s soon time for the ceremony to move on. “Lord, give us the gift of laughter at the time we need it,” says the priest. Of course, his words send the congregation into another fit of giggles. The remainder of the ceremony is clearly a struggle for the soon-to-be-wed pair.

The couple try their hardest to stifle their laughter as the priest addresses the congregation, but they fail miserably. Despite trying not to make too much eye contact with each other, the chuckles just keep on coming right until the end of the three-minute video.

It’s no wonder that the footage went totally viral. It was first uploaded in June 2009 and since then the viewpoint has reached nearly 21 million. People online simply couldn’t get enough of the groom’s laugh which some described as “contagious.”

“What a completely delicious and contagious laugh the groom has. Made me roar with laughter myself, just love it,” commented one YouTube user. And people totally related to that feeling when you simply can’t control the giggles.

“The worst laugh that can’t be controlled is the one where you are expected to be serious,” someone sympathized. Although it seems that many viewers found the groom’s style of laughter to be the funniest part of the entire video.

“Am I the only one laughing more at his laugh?” one person asked, while another claimed that the viral video, entitled “Can’t stop laughing,” was the funniest that they’d ever come across. It’s certainly a day to remember – or if you’re the best man, it’s more of a day to forget.
