Guests were left wiping away tears of laughter after a brave best man went with a hilarious parody of hit song “Let It Go” from the Disney smash Frozen instead of a more traditional speech.
Joey Boye’s surprise wedding turn “Best Man Joe” has now gone viral, with over 110,000 views and counting on YouTube. 27 year-old Joey wrote the alternative lyrics for his best friend Dominic Clarke’s wedding to Becky. It took him six months of writing and rehearsal to make sure it was perfect for their special day.
Like a traditional best man’s speech there are risky jokes and anecdotes, as well as some inspired lyrics:
“The bride wears white, on her wedding tonight, and her husband’s looking green,
After years of dating mingers, he’s finally found a queen.”
“Best man Joe, says hello, to the couple with the brightest spark.
Best man Joe, says hello, to the brand new Mrs Clarke.”
Joey, who hails from Hull in East Yorkshire, said: “I’ve known Dom all my life and I wanted to do something special. We both did theatre when we were younger and Becky loves Disney so this seemed perfect. It went down much better than I expected. I started writing it six months ago and I’ve been singing it constantly right up until their big day – even on the one-and-half hour drive to pick him up.”
