Has our dependence on digital devices come to the point that a bride can’t even get through her own wedding without checking her cell phone? A video showing exactly that is getting a second wind this week thanks to postings on Reddit and the Huffington Post, the latter of which placed it under the headline “Bride Checks Phone During Wedding Ceremony, Entire World Cringes.”
Watch above as the minister speaks about love, marriage and children while the bride reaches under her veil, sticks a hand down her strapless dress and retrieves a cell phone from her cleavage. The classy bride then proceeds to check it for several seconds while her disgusted-looking groom shoots her some unhappy glances, all of which are entirely lost on the bride who is too engrossed in her phone to notice.
The video was actually posted to YouTube in 2011, and has since reached up more than 2.3 million views. Is it real? Hard to know for sure, but it certainly is entertaining.
