Jill and Kevin's Wedding Entrance

Did anyone see the recreation of this on the Today Show last week? It's quite unique and I think they did a great job making a special day so memorable. This is the video of the original wedding entrance:

I've watched this about five times in the last hour and am still laughing hard every time. Sheep Pong! Just brilliant.

Great, Leyland! I've seen these guys before, but that's a new one. Their dogs must be incredibly well trained.

It's not the dogs. Each sheep receives two weeks of individual instruction, before being allowed to enter into the choreography school. There, they learn to synchronise their movements with those of other sheep and, using their satnavs and their natural talent, they instinctively know where to position themselves for the next photo shoot.

There is no more intelligent sheep than a Welsh sheep!!

p.s. They taste good too!!

Thanks for the enlightening behind-the-scenes commentary, Ken. There's just so much more to this production than I initially imagined. Perhaps the sheep should be allowed to try out for synchronized swimming gigs? Maybe not, do the satnav's float?

So glad they're tasty, too!
