Spoof wedding ad

I hope the mods will indulge me being slightly off-topic (in that my question isn't strictly about techniques it is about weddings) but I wonder if someone could help me locate a spoof American wedding ad which was around on the Internet maybe a year ago.

It's a multi-layered gag the core of which is a somewhat effete groom (so particular about the pronunciation of his name that he corrects the celebrant) who makes his way through the vows all the while flirting outrageously with the chief bridesmaid.

The charade of the vows and the flirting is broken up by an elderly woman guest who leaps to her feet shouting out her offer of very short odds on the marriage not lasting nine months. In a barely whispered aside the celebrant replies "I'll take some of that".

Then follows the reveal for some sort of online or maybe Las Vegas-type casino gambling concern.

The aspect of the ad which appeals to me (as I prepare a short industry presentation) is the multi-layered gag and the way that the writer and director have managed to create a mini-drama in just 30 or 40 seconds.
