From Mario and Princess Peach on top of the wedding cake to walking down the aisle to Final Fantasy music, there are tons of ways that gamers have incorporated their favorite hobby into the big day. The latest in the trend of gamer wedding gags involves a custom message to the groom delivered by Metal Gear Solid’s iconic protagonist.
The message from Solid Snake obviously comes in the character’s primary means of communication… a static-filled comms channel. The voice may not exactly match up with David Hayter or Kiefer Sutherland, but the tone of the message and the style of the video definitely take us back to the PS2 era of gaming.
Here’s a look at the special message from Snake to the groom…
It’s unclear at this point if the groom made the video himself or if it was a gift from his buddies. Whoever made the video was definitely a big fan of the series though and even included a variation on Snake’s iconic line, “Kept you waiting, huh?” The line has become a catchphrase, easter egg, and a meme and is a fan favorite that has been recreated in many iterations of the game.
We’re not sure how this video was shared with the groom, but we really hope it somehow played at the wedding in front of all the guests. At least some of them would have to get the reference, right?
What do you think of this groom’s custom message from Solid Snake? Let us know in the comments.
