Wanna see our nomination for groom of the year? Meet Michael Dawson, a copywriter from Sydney. His fiance Jessica is something of an A$AP Ferg superfan, who listens to the rapper “pretty much 24/7.” So he sprung for the ultimate wedding gift: a surprise message from A$AP Ferg himself!
According to Dawson, it wasn’t as hard as you might think. “[A$AP Ferg] was performing in Sydney and I just got in touch with his people to make the request,” he told Pedestrian.tv. “Then they came back and said ’We’ll arrange for you to put the idea to him and he may say no.'”
He met the rapper during a meet-and-greet a few weeks later. “The tour manager arranged for me to hang back to ask, then he introduced us and I gave him my spiel. I was so surprised when he said ’Yeah sure,’ he was actually super down with it.”
Later that night, with a little help from the official tour videographer, they filmed a short message for the happy couple. And then Dawson had to wait SIX WHOLE MONTHS to unleash his killer surprise. But it was TOTALLY worth it. Watch the message, plus the bride’s reaction, in the video below.
Can we please incorporate “If anyone sees a reason why these two should not be wed, shut the f-ck up,” into all wedding ceremonies?
