This Wedding Stunt Could Have Gone Terribly Wrong (VIDEO)

One couple was willing to risk the total annihilation of their precious wedding cake -- all for a crazy stunt done on Japanese TV.

In a video posted to Youtube earlier this month, professional soccer player Shunsuke Nakamura attempts a free kick in order to knock bride and groom cake toppers off a four-tiered cake.

The video appears to have been shot for a Japanese TV show, but according to reports, the wedding was real -- as were the reactions of the bride and groom.

Did the cake end up on the floor? Watch the video to find out.
