Weddings used to be a sanctimonious display of two people vowing to love each other for eternity but, in this day and age, more and more people use their big day for a chance at comedy. And, if you don’t giggle watching this video on Gawker of a groom cashing in on his slap-bet on his own wedding day, you must be dead inside.
What’s a slap-bet, you ask? You must not watch How I Met Your Mother...at least back when it was legen...wait for it...dary.
As Marshall Eriksen explains to Barney, “Whoever’s right gets to slap the other person in the face as hard as they possibly can. But no rings.”
As you find out in the episodes of HIMYM that feature the slap-bets, the scariest (and most awesome) part is the anticipation of when that hard and fast slap is going to hit you right across the face...and it will.
In the video, the groom, who we know as Zane, walks the ring-bearer, who is wheelchair-bound, up the aisle, before greeting each of his groomsmen. It seems like an emotional moment until he gets to his buddy, Steve Dalton, and...well...watch it and see.
