AHS alum surprise wedding dance

Update July 10: Unbelievable: now at 17 million-plus!

Update June 28: An incredible 3 million-plus views of the combined two videos below after clips shown on every major entertainment TV show from The Today Show and Good Morning America to Access Hollywood, TMZ, and dozens of others, as well as pick-ups by and even a shout-out by the Backstreet Boys.

Not to be outdone by the lip-dub music video of 2,000 Arcadia High School students earlier this month, AHS alum and former drumline captain Sean Rajee convinced his groomsmen at the reception following his wedding at the Trump National Golf Course in Palos Verdes Pennisula Saturday to help him surprise his new bride with a five-minute highly-choreographed dance that culminated with Sean on one knee lip-synching Bruno Mars’ “Marry You.”

Despite precious little time to work out the choreography, let alone the blocking — some of the groomsmen flew in from across the country and only had time for a couple of last-minute rehearsals after studying a video tutorial — Sean and his groomsmen with no dance experience pulled off an amazing routine of myriad styles to a montage of wildly diverse songs ranging from Beyonce and bride Ariana’s favorite Backstreet Boys to a Persian dance favorite before the Bruno Mars bride-and-crowd-pleasing finale.

Among the shocked onlookers was Sean’s older sister and Maid of Honor Shirin Rajee, a 2000 AHS graduate who is now a TV news anchor at KEYT NewsChannel 3 in Santa Barbara, and cousin Eli Loghavi and their fellow 2000 AHS alum Colorguard teammate Chelsea Hettrick.
