Man attends friend's wedding as a Gundam robot after being asked to wear a 'suit'

A man has gone viral for trolling his friend at his wedding by dressing like a Gundam robot instead of wearing a suit.

Now, wedding attire is often considered one of the most important aspects of the big day. One man put his own spin on the formalwear by donning the original Mobile Suit Gundam.

The post was soon shared to X/Twitter and has racked up over 4.2 million views in the process.

"That’s one serious suit," one person quipped, while another responded: "I love how the people in the background are just acting like this is completely normal."

While it might be a wild outfit for a wedding, it turns out the couple getting married represented Japan at the 2019 World Cosplay Summit, according to Sora News.

It comes after a separate wedding sparked a huge debate online when a guest wore a wedding-style dress that she wore to her prom years before.

The Reddit post said: "She yelled at me in front of all the guests, in front of her husband and my husband, saying that what I did was horrible and that no one shows up at a wedding in a wedding dress.

"I tried to reason with her, saying that the dress isn’t a wedding dress, it’s the only fancy piece of clothing I own, I wore it to multiple occasions before and after my wedding. She didn’t listen and kept yelling at me to the point her bridesmaids and her husband started trying to calm her down. She also said a bunch of unsavoury names to me."

“I was very upset with the drama and decided to leave with my husband. Then I started getting texts from Ciara, who blamed me for upstaging her on her wedding day, for driving a wedge between her and her husband since he said that she overreacted massively and upset her friend over a dress.

She continued: "I decided to ignore them because I think she is being unreasonable, but a part of me thinks that I was an AH because I wore the dress to my own wedding.”
