The best ‘Best Man’ prank ever

After having sworn to ‘no pranks before the wedding’ an anonymous Best Man in the UK, using technology, hooked up the newlywed couple’s bed to send an update to Twitter every time there was some ‘extra motion’ on the bed. The Twitter account @newlywedsonthejob gained over 22,000 followers in a relatively short space of time.

In an interview with Staggered, the anon best man has said that he will tell the bride and groom about the prank on Feb 26th, the day of the groom’s birthday! Staggered have even offered to sponsor a live video feed of the occasion!

We’ll be watching to see how events unfold in what is unarguably the best ‘Best Man’ prank ever.

Staggered is the UK’s number one men’s wedding magazine and provides advice on stag-dos, wedding suits and wedding speeches, making it ideal for best men, grooms, fathers of the bride and, even, brides.
