Published Jul 20, 2016Italy and Alberta might feel like opposite ends of the earth, but the former has built quite a fanbase for Calgary pop-punk veterans Chixdiggit. Miriam and Cristian are two massive fans who recently got married, and to surprise her hubby Miriam got him the best gift ever — a surprise performance of the classic 1996 punk anthem "I Wanna Hump You."
The resulting video is most likely the best thing you're going to see all day. It opens with footage of Cristian hugging a relative before being led to a tree-lined area in the sun. Behind the bushes, you can hear the band testing their instruments.
Then, at the 1:50 mark, Cristian turns around and discovers that his favourite quartet has made the trek to perform. There are few things quite as adorable as watching a groom pace around screaming, "You gotta fucking kidding me!"
Watch Chixdiggit perform "I Wanna Hump You" at an Italian wedding below, where you'll also find their upcoming tour dates. The band is expected to release their new album 2012 in September via Fat Wreck Chords.
