What's the challenge?
To crash a wedding in NYC.
What are you afraid of?
Pure embarrassment, or, having to take my video down like it happened!
How was the experience?
As a way to face embarrassment, I decided to crash a wedding. For this challenge, I invited my friend and comedian, Joanna Hausmann, to do it the Venezuelan way with me. When I was 17 years old crashing a wedding was the normal thing to do, but now that I'm 27, that's completely out of the question, mostly when I don't know the couple or any of the guests. The plan was to visit every fancy hotel in the city and ask "where's the wedding?" till we find one that we can blend in. I was extremely nervous thinking of all the possible worst case scenarios, but to our surprise, the first hotel we visited was hosting a wedding, not only that, but it was a Jewish wedding! What are the odds? We found a seat for the ceremony and enjoyed every second of it. The music, the place, the people, everything felt very familiar. When my favorite part arrived, I couldn't help myself but to start dancing with the family around the bride to all the traditional Jewish songs. We congratulated the bride for her beautiful dress and exited the hotel feeling accomplished.
A few weeks later, I received an email from YouTube asking me to remove the video due to a privacy complaint! Then, the hotel calls me asking me to take the video down from all my social media platforms.. So, I re-edited the video, no privacy is being violated now, but you only get to see the before and the after! Sorry guys!!!
