Now You HAVE to Love Wedding Dance Couple

Surely you watched this week’s viral sensation, JKWedding Entrance Dance. The funky-as-you-wanna-be nuptual entrance of Jill Peterson and Kevin Heiz to Chris Batterer Brown‘s Forever led to a bizillion downloads, lining the pockets of YouTube and the girlfriend beater himself. Which is not what this St. Paul couple had in mind, so they’ve created their own site, jkweddingdance.com, where you can watch the video and make a donation to the Sheila Wellstone Institute, which fights to end domestic violence.

Sheila, as you may know, was married to Senator Paul Wellstone, an old college professor of mine. Both were truly inspirational advocates who died when the Senator’s plane went down in a snowstorm. I don’t know if they knew Jill and Kevin or their families, but I’m sure they’d find this to be a pretty cool wedding gift all around. Bravo. Now, will Chris Brown step up and donate the money he’s made off the downloads? (H/T the always interesting Jezebel.)

Update: The inevitable, but still funny, divorce parody.
