Shockey, the Llama even wore a tux for the occasion!

A Cleveland man’s unlikely date to his sister’s wedding last weekend has made him a viral sensation. Back in 2015, Mendl Weinstock promised his sister Riva that he would only attend her future wedding if he could bring along a llama. Riva, who was then 17 and single, rolled her eyes and balked at the suggestion.


But after Riva got engaged in October, Mendl began researching llama farms in Ohio and found Shocky, the Llama. Shocky and Mendl greeted wedding guests as they entered the banquet hall, posing for photos. Mendl uploaded the photo of him, Riva and Shocky to Reddit, where it promptly went viral.
