Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel‘s recent wedding has stirred up some minor controversies: Why were Justin’s *NSYNC band mates not invited? Is $6.5 million too much to spend on a wedding? Jessica wore a pink dress? (Seriously? Pink?)
The latest hubbub comes by way of Gawker, which got access of one of those oh so hilarious surprise videos everyone loves to watch at wedding receptions. This very un-funny video was made by Timberlake’s friend, Justin Hutchel, an LA-based real estate agent.
In the video, several homeless people in Los Angeles are asked to send their well wishes to the happy couple since, you know, they couldn’t afford to make it to Italy for the multi-million dollar wedding extravaganza. Gawker notes, “Some of them are obviously intoxicated, mentally ill, or both, and at least one of them is entirely incapable of speaking.”
In an excerpt from the 8.5 minute video, a toothless man says to camera, “Justin and Jessica, I haven’t seen you for a long time. I hope the wedding goes fine for you. My gift is in the mail.” A man can be heard several times off camera, mocking and egging on the homeless participants.
Huchel’s lawyer clarifies the video was made without Timberlake’s knowledge, which unfortunately doesn’t make it any less disgusting.
