The latest video on YouTube to get national attention is one of a texting bride, posted by Jim Costa Films. The user describes the video as:
This is part of a wedding video I shot in August 2008 at the Mission
Beach Women’s Club in San Diego, CA. It was otherwise perfectly normal
except for this one funny clip of the bride TEXTING just after her dad
walked her down the isle! At one point, I noticed her doing it through
my lens and I had to pull away form the camera to make certain I was
seeing what I thought I was seeing. The minister was busy reading his
opening comments and her back was to everyone in attendance. I was the
only one to see her. Her dad glanced over at her and then saw me doing a
double take and began to laugh out loud! You can see him doing it in
the clip. Totally funny!
Hilarious. Also, what really strikes us as amazing is that this happened in 2008. Not that people weren’t texting three years ago, but it seems like the pervasiveness of technology grows every year, so we’re surprised this video isn’t from, like, last week. It’s also a little surprising the user took a whole year to post it to YouTube and then it took two more years to gain web-wide attention.
The best part is really that she was keeping her phone down her bosom. We wonder what she texted?
