Musical Yeovil Town best man’s speech becomes YouTube hit
A musical best man’s speech dedicated to the Yeovil Town-supporting groom has become a big hit after being uploaded to YouTube.
Glovers mad Matt Tilley received the (mainly) tuneful tribute at his wedding to Nicola. Best man Mark Southern reworked Yeovil’s 2004 FA Cup song Yeovil True, calling upon several members of the groom’s friends and family for vocal support.
Matt told Metro: “I was partly in shock and partly worried as to what was coming next but the whole reception got into it, singing and waving little green and white flags of me. There were green and white balloons everywhere.
“My dad, brother Sam and grandad, who still live in Yeovil, all had their own lines and then all my mates stood up for each chorus. It was amazing and brought a big smile to everyone’s faces.
“I couldn’t believe how quickly it escalated on YouTube. One minute it was 5,000 views, then 10,000 and now over 32,000 – quite unbelievable. Both myself and my best man could not believe it.”
