'Royal Wedding' Dance Video Goes Viral

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - If the real royal wedding looks anything like this one, it'll more than live up to all the hype.

In an online video now making the rounds, T-Mobile imagines the pending nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton through the lens of viral video royalty.

In it, royal family look-alikes boogie down the aisle to boy band East 17's "House of Love."

Charles and Camilla do the bump, a moderately amused-looking Queen Elizabeth claps conservatively and Prince Harry looks amped up, grooving with a gaggle of bridesmaids before his big brother and bride-to-be appear.

"One's life is for sharing," reads text at the end of the video before the T-Mobile logo appears.

The ad, which was uploaded Friday to YouTube, had racked up about 4.6 million views by Monday morning.

It's a riff on "JK Wedding Entrance Dance," a Minnesota couple's real 2009 wedding processional that became a YouTube smash, scoring more than 64 million views.

The spoof video, which The Guardian calls "the latest bit of shameless Wills 'n' Kate bandwagon jumping," is the most recent in a series of viral-style marketing spots by T-Mobile.

The video was filmed at St. Bartholomew the Great Church in London (which U.S. movie buffs may recognize from 1994's "Four Weddings and a Funeral.")

Louie Spence, a British choreographer and reality TV judge, reportedly choreographed the spoof and can be seen on a second video mock-critiquing the dance styles of the various "royals."

A T-Mobile spokesman told London's Daily Mail that the video is "a congratulatory message to William and Kate, as well as a way of capturing the nation's celebratory mood."

    SPOKANE, Wash. - It's been nearly one week since Washington voters passed Initiative 1639, a sweeping package of stricter gun regulations - particularly for semiautomatic rifles. While the measure raises the minimum age to purchase semiautomatic rifles to 21, creates enhanced background checks, and forces customers to wait 10 days before taking possession of the firearm, I-1639 lays the framework for "safe storage" of semiautomatic rifles
