A best man’s moving musical speech at his brother’s wedding has had more than 200,000 views since it was uploaded on Friday.
Australian musician Daniel Buccheri paired original lyrics he wrote for his older brother Adrian and new wife, Sarah, to the tunes of well-known pop songs.
The 25-year-old surprised the newlyweds with the six-minute medley at their wedding in Melbourne last month.
“I was so humbled to be my brother’s best man, so I decided to prepare a little surprise for him and his new wife on their wedding day,” Buccheri explained on his YouTube channel.
“When you moved out of home, I thought, ‘thank the Lord, I won’t be missing you’.
Then you were gone with a special girl. I thought you were dead, never saw you again.
“Although you met on the Internet, I know this love is true. It is enough to let the dogs on your expensive rug.” ~ Best Man Daniel Buccheri’s Lyrics For His Brother’s Speech[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XL9BB0ttsM[/youtube]

“Every Breath You Take” – The Police
“Ignition” – R. Kelly
“Can You Feel The Love Tonight” – Elton John (The Lion King)
“Hey Soul Sister” – Train

The result is a beautiful, tear-filled man hug.
