Royal wedding spoof tops 8 million views: viral video spotlight
Friday 22 April 2011
Prince William leapfrogs Prince Harry, Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams gets his groove on and other royals dance their way down the aisle in T- Mobile's viral video hit.
The video, titled The T-Mobile Royal Wedding, was conceived by the mobile carrier brand T-Mobile and has gained well over 8 million views since being uploaded to YouTube on April 15.
Set to East 17's "House of Love" and features a cast of royal look-a-likes, the video, which as of April 21 is YouTube's "most watched this week," probably took its inspiration from the real-life wedding video and YouTube hit "Jill and Kevin's Wedding Entrance Dance," in which a couple and their wedding party danced down the aisle. That video attracted upwards of 64 million views.
The full "T-Mobile Royal Wedding" video is available to watch at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kav0FEhtLug
Though the real wedding on April 29 will most likely be a much more subdued affair, the event will be streamed live at http://www.youtube.com/theroyalchannel.
