There are several elements of a wedding that people eagerly anticipate. The bride’s dress, the vows and the best man’s speech. So when this best man stepped up to the front of the room to begin his eagerly anticipated speech, he had a lot to live up to.
Being the best man is a high pressure job. You have to remember to bring the rings and you are expected to have the guests rolling on the floor laughing with your best man speech. But this didn’t seem to be a problem for the best man at the Willis wedding.
Wanting to do something a little bit different than the usual anecdotal speech, he decided to stick to his personal strengths by writing a special song just for the bride and groom. Commenting on his best friend’s sexual prowess from their school days, he jokingly sings about how they thought he would never get married, until he met his perfect bride.
Playing the acoustic guitar and singing his simple, yet hilarious lyrics, the best man has the whole room eating out the palm of his hand by the end of his speech. His music style is reminiscent of Ed Sheeran and he has the same cheeky vibe as the superstar.
Keeping the jokes coming as the song goes on, he has the guests howling with laughter and the happy couple cringing in their seats. But the perfect last verse strips it back to a heartfelt wish for the happy couple and it leaves you with a lump in your throat as he sings of their futures all together.
Check out the video below to see the brilliant best man speech – it’s probably the best that I have seen so far! Leave your thoughts in the comments below and share the humour with your friends. Maybe it will inspire future best men for their speeches… ?
