From The Wedding Chapel To YouTube, Newlyweds Getting Their “Marryoke” On

Back in 2009, when Jill and Kevin Kheinz – along with their wedding party of what seemed like 200 groomsmen and bridesmaids – shuffled down the aisle to Chris Brown’s “Forever,” they inadvertently gave birth to an entire generation of wanna-be YouTube stars, all who have tried in numerous efforts to dethrone the couple as the web’s next viral newlyweds.

And as this trend continues to blossom, a number of video production companies – we’ll call them enablers in this case – are providing the resources to transform any wedding into the best music video ever — or at least that’s what they promise.

In the past year or so, Marryoke (yes, it has a real name) has become increasingly popular overseas and has now unfortunately made its way to the United States.

Marryoke, if you haven’t figured it out by now, is what you get when you combine a wedding party, guests, liquor, a top-40 pop song, more liquor and a professional camera crew to film it all. The footage is later edited together, producing a unique momento where participants appear to be performing the song themselves.

Joel and Laura’s “Party Rock Anthem” Marryoke produced by Marryokes!, one of the more prominent enablers companies on the Marryoke bandwagon.

So don’t be surprised if the next “Save the date” notice you receive, asks that you learn the words to LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It.” Because after all, lip-synching, dancing around and slurring your speech while double-fisting Coors Light bottles is so incredibly sexy – it begs to be documented.

Thank you Jill and Kevin Kheinz.
