Will & Kate
in the Royal "House Of Love"


Dress Rehearsal for the Royal Wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William at the end of the month.

Watch below.

OK. So it's not the real Royal Wedding.

All In The Royal Family.
It's actually a viral video called "Wedding Dance" that was just launched this week by T-Mobile UK as part of their "Life's For Sharing" campaign. You may have gathered this if you watched the video clip all the way to the end.

Ad Agency Saatchi & Saatchi used royal phoneys to help advertise T-Mobile's phones.

They are cashing in on the hype and lead-up to Will & Kate's real wedding at the end of the month. The original viral video from 2009, "JK Wedding Entrance Dance" became an international phenomenon amassing over 64 million views to date. It was parodied quite successfully in Season 6 of The Office.

"With this T-Mobile Ring, I thee wed."
The song used in the vid is East 17's 1993 dance hit "House of Love."

"Chuck" and "Camilla" bump 'n grind down the red carpet.
Most of the look-a-like actors do have a striking resemblance to the people they portray. The "Archbishop of Canterbury" and "Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall" are almost dead ringers. This particular version of "Prince Charles" had a little too much chin, too much hair and not enough ear on show. The mismatched and amateur choreographed dancing works with the awkwardness of the characters themselves. Unusually, "Prince Harry" seemed somewhat restrained, but "Will" & "Kate" sell their parts well.

Below is a "Making Of" video showing behind-the-scenes footage. The London church used in the filming, St Bartholomew's Church, was also used in the movie "Four Weddings and a Funeral."

Now, alot of the common folk of Greater Britannia may cringe and cower at the attention this might receive. Perhaps many find that anything to do with the Royals is cringeworthy. The real upcoming royal wedding will give the Queen's British subjects a chance to celebrate their serfdom in true style. How often do you get to throw a wedding laden with pomp & circumstance that you would normally never be able to afford?

T-Mobile's spoof wedding could prove to be a lot more entertaining, shorter, sharper, and with a lot more punch than the long drawn out actual wedding / possible yawnfest. One thing it will definitely be is a darn sight cheaper than the real one at the end of the month - which in a time of "British austerity" could be a good thing.

  1. It would be totally awesome if that was the real wedding, though.
