You had one job.

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson may have starred in Wedding Crashers, but they're not the only guests behaving badly and having a hoot on someone else's special day.

A bride getting married last September apparently loved owls so much that she hired a trainer to have one of the majestic birds bring the rings in during the ceremony (or maybe she just didn't trust any of age-appropriate children in the family). But when the owl was released to soar over the venue and up to the wedding party, it decided to go with a flight plan of its own and slammed right into a window. There's a collective "OOOooh" as the whole room winces in pain.

And for all those concerned, the owl is reportedly fine. We hope the rest of the wedding ceremony was too.

You'll get a hoot out of this. While the United States think that cat cafes are all cool or whatever, owl cafes are the hottest thing around in Tokyo. And with good reason, because honestly, these winged beauts are much more interesting and entertaining than your average household kitty—especially one bird that was captured on video riding a tiny toy horse.
