We've heard of wearing your wedding dress on your anniversary every year, but this one may just take the wedding cake! 26-year-old YouTube comedian Laura Bubble pranked several unsuspecting men when she showed up to their first date in a wedding dress.
"This year's theme for Stand Up to Cancer is rebellion, so with the help of a microphone, a dating app, and some creepy phrases, I'm going on first dates in a wedding dress," she shared on YouTube. The 26-year-old wore a white wedding dress, full makeup and hair, and a bouquet and set off to enjoy some awkward first-date conversation. The ruse was part of a "Stand Up to Cancer with YouTube," a four hour live-streamed event which raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for vital cancer research in England, per Daily Mail.
For her prank, the comedian arranged several dates using a dating app and wore her wedding dress to all of them. While some men were polite and engaged in casual conversation with Bubble (shoutout to Rhys who sat at a table with her for more than five minutes and drank some tea — just looking slightly nervous), others saw her from far away and booked it before she could say a word. In her convo with Rhys, their relationship was taken to the next level in just one word, " So I was thinking I should add you on Facebook and then we can make it, like, 'official.'"
When asked about her festive appearance, she noted she was "dressing for the occasion," which seemed to spook the potential daters even more. One guy saw her from across the way in the mall and hightailed it outta there (can't say we blame him!), while another made excuses to leave by saying he had to go get drinks with a friend.
Even though it's a bit of a relief to see that it's a hoax, it did get us thinking about new locations and events to wear wedding dresses to — hey, if Queen Bey can do it, why can't the rest of us? See below for the full video.
