Andrew Stadelberger hit up a wedding recently that featured the trendy reception staple: a photo booth. This photo booth was cooler than other photo booths, though, because it allowed for slow motion video, Stadelberger said on Reddit. Stadelberger, whom houseQM correctly said looks like a Paul Walker-Vince Vaughn love child, used the photo booth to great, stoic effect.
At first this video seems like great fun—Simon & Garfunkel, what a hoot! Then upon realizing that this song is not that chipper and Stadelberger is giving an ambiguous face worthy of The Graduate, this video gets real. Stadelberger titled the video "This is 30." Shit, what's 40 going to look like? That's going to be a very dark video.
Stadelberger isn't the first to use "The Sound of Silence" as a way to heighten emotions in a video. Here's Sad Affleck as proof that this classic song has added instant feelings to a video before.
