Military Pilot Delivers Best Man Speech From Cockpit Of Harrier Over Afghanistan

YouTuber Brandon Krivohlavy recently married his sweetheart Mandy, but unfortunately his brother and best man was deployed in Afghanistan and was unable to attend the ceremony.

The harrier pilot might not have been able to be there next to his brother on his big day, but that wasn’t going to stop him from making that all-important best man’s speech. So he recorded a message expressing his happiness for the newlyweds from the cockpit of his harrier jet over the Afghan skies and sent it to them.

Making a best man’s speech can be tricky, do you go for the comic jugular or opt for a sincere speech that runs the risk of burying the guests in emotional goop? This military pilot went for the endearing kind and we are pretty damn sure that the unusual nature of his message had his audience captivated from start to finish.

UPDATE: According to the New York Daily News, Capt. Krivohlavy is assigned to Marine Attack Squadron 231, based at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, North Carolina.

Newlywed Brandon Krivohlavy also posted video of his brother’s creative toast on Reddit, which has since been deleted. Just in case the video above goes down, check out some screenshots below …
