New information has come out proving that the #WeStillComing meme is not at all what it appears to be.
On the surface, it looked like a bunch of guys photo bombed a happy couple in their wedding photos. DeadlineDetroit.com, however, reports that the situation was actually the exact opposite! The bride, groom and their wedding party crashed the set of a rap video.
Photographer Adam Sparkes explained on Facebook that the newlyweds were looking for spot to snap some shots before their reception, and they decided that Michigan Central Station was an ideal backdrop. When they got there, they found the location was already being used to shoot a music video. ““They had a tricked out Monte Carlo and a Cutlass and were in full music video mode,” Adam said.
Although Adam initially had them shooting in a different spot at the location, the music group eventually invited them over. “I asked the groom if he wanted to be famous, and jokingly we yelled, ‘Hey we’re going to be in your video!’ The guys were all laughing and told us to come on over, so we did,” Adam recalled.
“Detroit is an eclectic, diverse place, and a scene where a group of hip-hop kids and a mostly white bridal party [are] yucking it up isn’t that surprising to me at all,” Adam said in conclusion. “Detroit is always full of surprises.”
One of the surprises must be how quickly the hoax caught on with all types of different news outlets!
