This Guy Ripped His Bride's Wedding Dress, and Here's What I Bet He Was Thinking When It Happened

If you're interesting in seeing what the face of true fear looks like, look no further than this photo of a man who ripped his bride's wedding dress, conveniently snapped at the exact moment the disaster occurred. According to Jezebel, the happy (although that was quickly about to change) couple was performing the first dance at their wedding when tragedy struck: The groom tread directly over his bride's fluffy wedding dress. Unfortunately for him, the photographer was seriously on point that day and managed to capture his face as the realization hit. Someone get this photographer an award ASAP, because his sense of timing is impeccable. Despite what's probably your immediate assumption — that is, that he was murdered in his sleep on his wedding night — the groom lived to tell the tale. In fact, he deserves major props for being the one to post the moment on Imgur in the first place. According to his post, he did so because he felt like "things have been a little down on here lately." Awww. He was quick to clear up any misconceptions about the state of his marriage, stating that he's (miraculously) still alive and that no castration occurred.

So, what does a dude look like when he rips his wife's wedding dress?

Oh boy. That is one terrified man. Is anyone else wondering what exactly went through his mind? Because as always, I have a few ideas. 16, to be exact, and I happen to have them handily presented in GIF format. What can I say? That's how I roll.

1. "Oh, god, here comes the dance."

2. "Don't mess this up, buddy, because literally everyone is watching."
