Wedding speeches are nerve-racking affairs – how funny should you be? How far can you take it? Well, one best man went about as far as you can. Watch the clip below:
Picking the right best man for your wedding is tricky; you want someone who knows you well enough to give a good speech, but not so well that they ruin your marriage before it's even started.
Scottish groom Gary thought his brother, Derek, was the ideal person to say a few words after he tied the knot with Kirsty at Doubletree Dunblane Hydro, Perthshire.
And up stepped Derek.
In a video posted to TikTok by wedding photographers We Are One Wedding Films, Derek decided it was the best time to share a story of a particularly special Christmas Gary and his beloved once spent with each other.
He says: "One Christmas morning, I got up in my mum and dad's house, buzzing I may add. Walked down the stairs to open my presents only to be greeted with a slap from my mum. 'What did I tell you about bringing folk back here?'
"I say, 'What are you talking about mum, I've been in my bed the full night'.
"Obviously she's not thinking about golden child next door."
Derek goes on: "So we're in the living room opening a couple of presents, me, my mum and my dad, and we hear rustling from the wee room in the auld house, as we called it.
"At this point I go up the stairs, open Gary's room, and there you have it, Kirsty Currie, lying with her legs at ten to two.
"She certainly never came down the chimney in that position anyway. Merry Christmas, Kirsty."
Safe to say neither Gary nor his bride were expecting that particular story, with the pair creasing up in utter disbelief.
But it went down a storm with guests, who can be heard howling with laughter in the background.
The clip was posted with the caption: "This could be the best punchline from a best man's speech ever."
And it's hard to disagree.
Since it was shared, it has been viewed more than 4.5 million times, with thousands piling into the comments.
One user said: "The absolute fear in the groom's eyes. That's when you know the speech is going to be good."
Another chimed in: "The Scottish have a way of telling stories that isn't matched anywhere."
"She's a good team player, love the way the bride laughed it off," wrote a third.
Another added: "10-2 got me, she was mortified."
