Could it be the next JK Wedding Entrance dance?

Improv Everywhere founder Charlie Todd turned his wedding to longtime girlfriend and castmate Cody Lindquist into an affair to remember.

Unbeknownst to all but the bride, groom, officiant, and groomsmen, the otherwise simple and personal ceremony had a dramatic surprise in store for the final act. A professional wrestler stormed in with an objection and proceeded to get into a simulated brawl with the groom and all his men. It took Todd pretending to smash a chair over the mock-intruder’s head to send him away.

According to Todd, friends and family had repeatedly asked, “Is there going to be a prank at the wedding?” after the pair’s engagement.  Todd and Lindquist decided to plan something out of the ordinary to spice up the ceremony and distract from jitters on the big day.

The prankster, Eugene Cordero, knew Todd from a parody professional wrestling at Upright Citizens Brigade that Todd created years ago.  Cordero, whose character was named “Pu Kang Kang,” immediately agreed to reprise his alter ego for the wedding.

Judging by guests’ reaction in the video, the prank did not disappoint.
