The improv gurus behind No Pants Subway Rides teamed up this week to throw a surprise wedding reception for a random, unsuspecting couple. Fifty wannabe guests got dressed in their matrimonial attire, and headed down to Manhattan's City Clerk's office.
One couple was selected and led to tents that had been borrowed from a just-finished job fair. The guests (again, all strangers) cheered during the couple's first toast, watched them share their first dance, and boogied down with them for a couple of hours. One stranger gave the best man toast, and the bride and "maid of honor" met for the first time. After the gifts (mostly gift cards), the couple hopped in a pedicab complete with "Just Married" signage and took a ride around New York City.
Would you be happy if this happened to you, or would you have a hard time celebrating your wedding with strangers?
