As wedding trends change over the years, disposable cameras set out on tables have been replaced with the now ubiquitous “photo booth,” in which guests are encouraged to put on silly hats, oversized sunglasses, feather boas, and hold wacky props to take “fun” group photos. But it appears that even static photos may be on their way out at this point, judging by this “slow-motion booth” at one couple’s recent wedding.
For all intents and purposes, it seems as though the slow-motion booth is basically the same exact thing as the photo booth, only in this case drunken guests move around… slowly. Yes, it does all seem rather silly.
As such, one participant named Andrew Stadelberger made his feelings about the slow-motion booth very clear in this video titled “This is 30.,” which he later set to “The Sound of Silence” by Simon & Garfunkel — the quintessential song of expressing one’s deep regret at how things have gone so horribly, terribly wrong in life.
Cheer up, guy. This may be 30, but 30 is the new 25 and I have no doubt that in a few years or so, you’ll be putting guests through whatever dumb crap is popular by the time of your own wedding to the lucky future Mrs. Stadelberger. Maybe holograms will be a thing by then, who knows.
