Was this intended to scare the crap out of the groom? :)


A viral video shared on Vimeo (https://vimeo.com/152263079) shows a haka dance (http://www.newzealand.com/us/feature/haka/), a traditional war dance from the New Zealand indigenous people, the Māori, (http://www.newzealand.com/us/maori-culture/) being performed at Benjamin and Aaliyah Armstrong's wedding last weekend. The performance, which was done as a surprise by the groomsmen as well as guests, made Aaliyah emotional and eventually moved the entire room.

Interesting. Just showed it to my wife. She exclaimed that NZ is now off our travel list.
You just saved me a ton of cash, thanks!
