Video footage of filmmaker Kevin Smith (Chasing Amy, Clerks) officiating the commitment of hockey superfans Scott Loudon and Michael Wojtowicz this past February, is now available online. The two hardcore fans of the Los Angeles Kings have been in a relationship for 16 years and were wed in a ceremony conducted in Smith’s podcast studio and recorded for his SModcast podcast. The ceremony was also aired in part on ABC’s Nightline on February 22, in a segment about celebrity ministers that also included Tori Spelling and Kathy Griffin.

“Suddenly, it goes from the 50 people here in this room to potentially the entire world [who get] to hear your wedding," Smith says about the video. "And the more interesting the people are, the better it is. And if you're getting married here, you're really interesting. ... If you're getting married in hockey jerseys, and making me wear a referee jersey, and you're gay, and you're here, and you're huge hockey fans, we're in for a great show."
