Jeff & Erin's epic save the date video #Wedding Porn#los angeles#save the date#video January 20 2010 | Ariel arielmstallings I'm seeing more and more folks doing Save The Date videos instead of cards — but this one from Jeff & Erin pretty much takes the cake. There's an eye patch! There's an evil kitty! There are Vietnamese subtitles! In a time … when height meant everything … The video's currently got about 4000 views … let's see how long it takes before this one goes viral. 🙂 UPDATE: After we posted it here on Offbeat Bride, as we predicted the video went completely viral and showed up EVERYWHERE online and even international TV. For some reason (possibly related?) the youtube video is now private. You can still find it here, though. Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

Their wedding is going to be faaaabulous!!! Reply This is OVER THE TOP! I love it! Reply This is EPIC! Absolutely LOVE it! 😀 Reply This is the best save the date EVER!!! Reply OMG this is awesome!!!!! I love it! Reply Oh wow…. I don't think I can ever hope to do anything that awesome for my save the date. (I just realized why no one has ever tried to shorten that – STD just doesn't quite bring in the same effect.) Reply People totally shorten it all the time! On the OBT, on other wedding websites, all over the place. And it makes me giggle far more than it should! Reply Clearly you haven't read Offbeat Bride the book — I talk alllll about the STD acronym. 🙂 Reply Wow! I mean just wow! I wanna know how they got movie phone guy. Reply AMAZING!!!! *jealous* Reply this hits a new level of AWESOME!! Reply This is FANTASTIC!!! Reply That is totally totally awesome. 😀 I had to show my boyfriend, he loved it too. Haha. Reply Um. Wow. I have no words to describe the awesomeness of this! Reply I'm freaking out about printing my STD on magnet paper and they go and do that! LOL That is the most awesome thing I have ever seen (wedding related anyway!!)…holy cr@p!! LOVED IT!!!! Reply And yeah, I went there….I shortened "save the date" 😉 Reply Brilliant! I posted it to my journal and now it's starting to make rounds on my friends list…with OBB credit, of course. 🙂 Reply I died when they got to the eye patch & the cat. Too cute! Reply Very cool …. first I thought they were going to say 10-10-10 but in the end it said october 9 2010 … but the show was very well thought out and very unique way to make save the date cards…. Nice … great looking couple.. Congrats! Reply OK, that is pretty much the coolest thing I have ever seen. Reply OMG!!! Oh… MY… GOD!!! This is the BEST thing I've ever seen! This is on so many levels of awesome I can't even express it. Who made this movie?! I want to know. Did they hire someone? Or do it themselves? The opening 20th Century spoof logo is a program design in and of itself! Wow! Reply Thanks Sarah! We only hired someone for the voiceover; he is a voice actor named Larry Wayne. The trailer started out as a simple idea, but then we got a new camera that could record in HD and the ideas just kept on coming! Once we heard the voice, we knew we had to make the video live up to the sound. As for the 20th Century logo, it was a template model created by "blazer003" in a program called Blender. We just followed his tutorial: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=7… Reply I dig the use of the Requiem for a Dream music, aka "Epic Movie Preview Music." Reply So freaking awesome!!!!! Reply OMG this is amazing! And they're such a beautiful couple as well!! Reply I so agree!! But I'm biased since I'm a white girl and my fiance is Vietnamese 🙂 Reply So. Much. Win. Reply Amazing production quality and some really well done effects! Just for the Save the Date? WOW!! So I did some searching and found some more awesomeness like this: (I thought this one was taking itself too seriously… until the lightsaber! ROFL) (short, but also well done) (HILARIOUS! But I can't imagine Grandma enjoying this one!) (SO %$#@%#$ FUNNY – I think I laughed at this one the most!) (Playing off of Mr & Ms Smith… cute!) Pure Awesome. Reply This has just appeared on a national news network here in Aus… and OBB found it first! Whoo-hoo! Reply I absolutely love this! Reply You were right, this theatrical announcement is all over the place now…talk about sharing the L-O-V-E 🙂 I'd like to see someone make an epic RSVP! We linked to your post on our Twitter channel: http://twitter.com/PredictableBut Making a toast to awesome "Wedding porn," Caroline, PA "Predictable But Fun" Reply I give you a 5 star for the most entertaining wedding blog – Great Reply It's a private video. 🙁 Reply Yeah, that just changed. 🙁 Reply Ok – so you post on The Today show – which is very public – but you don't have available online to share? Why is that? Very cool btw…….. Reply I have a feeling that the Today Show ripped it off the internet on their own and that's probably why the video is private today. 🙁 Reply I was just scrolling through some recent news stories and thought… hey that's the vid from OBB! (Is it ok if I post a link to the story? I can always edit it out – it's an interesting read). http://news.ninemsn.com.au/technology/1004555/cou… Reply Great work. Here's an even better Save The Date! (better production quality, excellent story line) the bride rising from the water! horses! arrows! light sabers! the groom slicing a watermelon in midair! Cheers to Dan and Jen's Save the Date Reply Will they become friends with me? I will sell a kidney to go to their wedding. Also, my boyfriend is shorter than me. I don't know why I have it in for shorter Asian dudes, but I do. Reply This video made the front page of today's Globe and Mail (Toronto) http://www.theglobeandmail.com/ cool!
