Aww, that's so sweet, and she looks so lovely and everyone seems happy...

Do it.

I'm not so freaked out by the hello kitty aspect, but that the guy or gal (since Jamie could be a man's or a woman's name) is named after a malted milk drink. I'll bet you within ten years we will see a "Lexus" get married to a "Porsche", or some such thing.

"Bridezillas: International Edition" is just dying to be made.

I think I Horlicked in my mouth a little.

Why are they getting married in a train station? And why didn't I think of matching rickshaws for MY wedding, damnit?

Oh. One more time.

I'm a Hello Kitty fanatic myself, but even I think having Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel* attend the wedding is bizarre, much less appear to be acting as Maid of Honor and Best Man.

*it's probably sad that I know this, but the first step is admitting you have an addiction, right?

i consider myself a fairly libertarian person, but what kind of a wussy guy would go along with that?

I'd Hello her Kitty.

what is amazing to me here is that this seems to be taking the ritual of pretending to get married as a child and perverting it, so that the bride is actually attending her own wedding as if it is a bizarre fantasy of her 8-year-old self, except that she's an adult. Seriously freaky.

GooseOnTheLoose writes "I'd Hello her Kitty."

Yeah, given the hotness disparity, he's either extremely rich, or he's gonna be putting up with this sort of folly for the rest of his natural born days -- and will be glad to do so.

what kind of a wussy guy would go along with that?

The kind that thinks that morning coats are actually more dressy than formal wear. White tie with a morning coat? What's this world coming to?

The word I'm looking for is "cloying"...

it looks like they are in a mall.

also. i wonder if they make hello kitty brand divorce papers. just a matter of time.

Clearly nothing could be more romantic than building a life around a registered trademark of a large media company. I hope they raise a large family of healthy consumers.

This doesn't seem all that much worse than a Star Wars wedding.

I take it this is a franchise and lots of people do this.

Was that kitty litter they were throwing at the bride and groom?

Your favorite cartoon character sucks.

Why is everyone assuming it's all her idea?

In fact, I think it almost takes a male to have that level of obsession, no matter what you may read on Hello Kitty Hell. Men get fanatic, weird even, about things. I'm guessing that no man would go through with this if he were not also a fan.

I can say this, because I know. I'm a 32 year old male, with a real job and a real life, and this is my room. I would totally do that, if I could find a woman who'd go along with it.

Except I'd be better at it. There wasn't enough Hello Kitty stuff there! And what, no bridesmaids? What about poor Mimmy, and Cathy, and My Melody? And I would totally make sure Dear Daniel and Tippy both got plenty to drink, because I'd love to see them fight it out over Kitty. I mean, what, Daniel's in Africa for maybe a week tops and she's already putting the moves on Tippy? Kitty, you're the sweetest little thing ever, but that's taking "you can never have too many friends" a little too far.

Seconding Dark Sasami. It didn't even occur to me that this could have been her idea unti I read the comments here. I only watched the first 30 seconds but he seemed far more excited about the proceedings than she was, but then that could be just because he's an uberdork gleeful with the prospect of getting a piece of that for the rest of his life.

This is the nightmare I would have after eating a 2lb bag of marshmallows dipped in LSD listening to J-Pop in a Tokyo rail terminal.

Again.

I used to work for a couple with the last name of Horlick. Malted milk drink aside, when you think about it? It's really just not the best name.

You are all acting like a traditional western wedding is normal and not an insanely stupid thing to begin with.

One of these words does not mean what you think it means.

That's just horrible. Who names their kid Horlick?

I thought this was about Jamie Gorelick, from the 9/11 Commission.

I just showed this to my Chinese wife. Her reaction: "This man has no penis."

Also, which one is Horlick, and which one is Jamie?

Y'all can hate on it if you want, but much respect to Jamie and Horlick, they be rockin' it hardcore! Hello Kitty or DIE.
