When people shed tears at a wedding, it’s usually not because the bride and groom were trying to hard not to snigger that everyone else in the audience ends up laughing so hard they cry.

For whatever reason, not a second goes by as the priest tries to guide the couple through their vows without someone making a wildly hilarious face or letting out a gurgle or snort from the laugh they were trying to hold in.

God knows the maid of honor tried.

Even the priest had trouble.

And the guys behind the camera were just losing it.

Turns out, he’s the real culprit:

Right before the vows, the groom’s father’s pants fell down, and everyone promptly tried to stifle their laughter—which only made it so much worse.

The video itself was posted onto YouTube in 2009, and since then has racked up over 20 million views on that initial iteration alone. Who knows how many others have laughed along with this wedding party via social media?
