Video

The music video is centered around the fictional wedding of Andre 3000, progressing through the men's waiting room before the ceremony, the wedding itself, the reception, and the afterparty dance.


Before the wedding ceremony, Bun B and friends ridicule Andre for supposedly rushing into getting married, and poke fun at him for wearing a red kilt ("I've got Scottish in my family," Andre calmly states). DJ Paul humorously says that it makes him look like Roddy Piper of WWE. Andre defends his decision to get married, saying that he is ready to take the next step in life, and in turn berates his friends for not looking to get into commitments themselves. Roderick George Toombs (born April 17, 1954) better known by his ring name Rowdy Roddy Piper, is a Canadian professional wrestler, and film actor. ... World Wrestling Entertainment, or WWE, is a professional wrestling promotion, currently the largest in North America. ...


During the wedding, Andre constantly flirts with members of the bridal party, as well as past flings who are scattered throughout the congregation. Interestingly, the audience remains seated as the bride marches to the altar, a boy plays with an oversize toy spaceship, and one of Andre's past flings makes a snide remark to him (the verse that is being rapped), to the dismay of her date. A choir and its director, T-Pain, seem to sing the "I Choose You" vocals as the wedding progresses, while the groomsmen and other friends implore Andre to "keep your heart, 3 stacks!" T Pain is a hip-hop artist whose debut single was released in August 2005. ...


Later at the afterparty, two of Andre's past flings get into an argument while attempting to catch the bride's bouquet, which escalates into a full-blown fist fight that destroys the wedding cake and much of the buffet. The male onlookers are pleasantly shocked, the bride is almost reduced to tears, but the rest of the main characters (including the bride) all smile at the end, apparently having a good time.
