Wedding trends are changing and some people really go the extra mile, incorporating hilarious things into their weddings. One of these is a Missouri newlywed couple, who moments after exchanging vows last Saturday during their reception in Springfield, went viral overnight on TikTok after having the O'Reilly Auto Parts jingle performed by the original performing artists, complete with a voiceover about replacing car batteries.

The video was posted by @michaelunderlin on Tiktok, captioned, "Original voice cast of the @O'Reilly Auto Parts jingle reunites at a wedding. You can’t make this stuff up." The video instantly made the internet crazy, with over 2.7 million views in just over a day since it was posted. The video showcases the original singers singing on the main stage, along with a person doing the voiceover in the ad jingle. The bride is seen standing on the side of the stage.

“I don’t know why everybody doesn’t sing the O’Reilly jingle at their wedding,” bride Patti Crump Lemons told The Post from Paris on her honeymoon. However, for Crump Lemons, 51, and her husband Nick Sibley, 69, the upbeat song playing on stations all over the country holds much more significance for them personally. The music was written by Sibley, a professional musician, in the 1980s, with his wife working as a video producer for a huge auto parts company. They had spent years getting to know one another at work.

“Our friends and family didn’t really know what we did for our day jobs. So we’re like, well, let’s just show them and we were all excited,” she said.

It was simple to find the musical manpower. As friends of the bride and groom, the singers and musicians of the original song had already registered to attend the wedding. “We just said, ‘Hey, we need to do an O’Reilly skit at the wedding.’ They just laughed about it and then we just kind of did it, impromptu,” Crump Lemons said. “That wasn’t part of my dream wedding when I was a little girl.”

However, she quickly got into the spirit of things. Crump Lemons guided the musicians for 10 minutes of alternate, outrageous renditions of the theme as guests sat in the audience, using a bullhorn for "doing the talk back" like in the studio. “I think most people just thought it was quirky and silly, but that’s just kind of the people that we are,” she said.

The couple discovered they were suddenly viral stars when they were on their honeymoon. “We just kind of got caught wind of it here in Paris. Somebody called us here saying it was on TikTok and it was getting a bunch of views,” Sibley told The Post. “You try to do something like that on purpose and you couldn’t do it.” The bride, however, is still taken aback by the overwhelmingly positive response her trick has received while taking it all in. “I’m shocked today that many people want to view something like that,” Crump Lemons said. “There were a lot of fun moments that day and that was just the icing on the cake.”



 

 

TikTok users loved the video, with many making jokes about the hilarious stunt. Tiktok user @tuanyes84 commented, "Homie plugging his ear like he’s serving Mariah Carey." TikTok user @isthatuanthony commented sarcastically, imitating an ad, "But before u kiss ur bride, a word from our sponsors!"
