It’s hard work being a best man or maid of honor in a friend’s wedding. You have to be their rock, their consultant, their cheerleader, and then there’s the little matter of a speech in front of a room full of their families and closest friends.

After pretending he forgot his speech at home, Morrison ran out of the reception hall and cued up a video of his dramatic journey home to retrieve his speech.
