Screaming flower girl steals the bride's thunder in viral video

She's no Grace Van Cutsem, whose magnificent frown cast shade over the whole royal wedding, but this raging flower girl from an America's Funniest Home Videos clip more than holds her own. Stick around for the ring bearer, who's so over the proceedings that he hits himself in the face with a pillow.

I think that it is cruel to post this video. (not you — the photographer) I don’t think that it is cute at all and probably a good warning to not drag children into a solemn ceremony against their wills.

Actually, it would have been funny if she was wearing a t-shirt: “Bomb squad. If you see me running, try to keep up.”

The reaction of the ringbearer boy was much better: hiding his face in the cushion...

If it was a lesbian wedding all they would have is two little Dutch boys.

Eh. It was ok. I think the ring bearer with the pillow in his face was much cuter.

Weddings are about families so I always think the little kids belong, screams and all. That's life. And, in my opinion, if they're getting married, that should be what the couple is saying yes to - screaming tantrum throwing kids and all.

AFV, of course. It’s not cute and certainly not funny. We stopped watching the show years ago when my kids were still at home. We all came to the same conclusion which was that the video of the snot-bubble blowing, screaming kid would ALWAYS win. Not because it was cute or funny, but the mostly female audience would always vote for the kid. The really funny videos barely receive a mention.

My now adult, parental, kids still comment that it is supposed to be “funniest”, not “cutest” home videos and still refer to Vin Debona as Vin DeBonehead.

This is not even funny. The little one was scared to death of this event. I don’t understand why brides insist on having little toddlers do this flower girl thing when they are so very little...it is cruel. And posting this video to go viral is also pretty stupid. But stupid is as stupid does!

It was the inspiration for “Ow, My B@lls!” in Idiocracy.

As I noted, the funny videos were being slowly overrun by the cute baby vids.

Now days, some of the premium channels have some truly funny videos. They cover all manner of human contrived stupidity and idiocy.

Hey, we’re human and we tend to laugh at the fool who saws through a tree standing next to their truck or the nitwit who does a faceplant while trying to balance on the back of a chair. The question is always on your mind: How could they not see that result coming? It reminds us that we may do stupid things at times but there are a lot people out there who a lot more stupid than we are.

The nad-smackers remind us that there are some out there who actively try to remove themselves from the reproduction pool.

The older episodes are always being rebroadcast on some channel so his name in giant script font is always at the end of the credits. The grandkids still watch some episodes so their parents watch with them.

“I don’t understand why brides insist on having little toddlers do this flower girl thing when they are so very little..”

I wonder the same thing. I had my cousins who were like 9 & 10 at the time be our Ring Bearer and Flower Girl. They were just as cute and did exactly what they were suppose to. But then I think some people like the kind of attention a screaming kid brings them. Nobody will forget it, that’s for sure!

I was the same way at my wedding.

It didn't happen to me until the next morning when I sobered up in La Vegas, the kicker was finding out that gay marriage was legal there.

According to the description at the video, the little girl was balking at holding her brother's hand.

I'm not going to comment on the propriety of having small children at an event like this. Kids are what they are.

I am sorry, but my cynicism says that 90% of these ‘viral’ videos are staged.
Once people think they can get some ‘recognition’ no telling what they will concoct ...

I thought that way back when the ‘Funniest Video’ shows surfaced.
The more outlandish the situation etc the more people will go out of there way to ‘make the show’.

There are a couple of these restaurant/bar/business ‘experts’ that go to failing businesses and ‘rebuild’ them.
The scenario NEVER changes.
Failing Restaurant, stupid owner, disgruntled disloyal staff, ‘expert’ comes in, shouting match involved with owner- rotten food all over, trashy places etc with the plus being the guy - for putting up with the ‘drama’ ends up with a new restaurant out of the deal.
Personally, if “Joes Steak House” is the featured restaurant and it shows he has months old food in the reefer, dead rats behind the equipment etc etc etc, I don’t care who ‘visits’ him - equipment gets old, help gets bad BUT rotting food in the refrigerator is unacceptable.

I try to use as a rule of thumb the cleanliness of the restroom to judge the place.
Granted when you get in there may be some towels on the floor, a ‘mess’ etc BUT if the place has an absolute dirty, grungy look to it one can only imagine what the kitchen - Where you are NOT allowed to go - must look like.
Also, the condition of these kitchens makes one wonder if the city involved has a Health Department.

I have cats etc so I can see how this MAY be a spontaneous act.

However, if it is, those two lads should be needing a very soft cushion to sit on for the near future or so - AND live long enough to pay for the cleanup.

That said, I could have a camera taped to my forehead and another to my chest and the LAST thing I would think about is the camera if I were to walk in on this ‘scene’.
