This wedding crasher might just give Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson a run for their money!

Gritty, the scary-looking new mascot of the Flyers hockey team, arrived unannounced at the Grossmuller-Schwemlein wedding reception in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia Friday night.




Wasting no time at the shindig, the googly-eyed, orange-tufted weirdo immediately began cutting a rug with members of the wedding party, including the stunned bride, as bemused guests gazed in disbelief.

The 7-foot-tall Gritty, decked out in jersey and a helmet, was recorded busting a fairly impressive cabbage patch to the delight of those in attendance.

“THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO ME,” tweeted @marybwagner, who posted a selfie of Gritty and herself.

While social media reactions ran the gamut from perplexed to amused, one likely Flyers fan summed up Gritty’s appearance much more succinctly.

“DAMN IT GRITTY, WE SAID CRASH THE BOARDS, T THE BRIDES,” tweeted John [email protected]

While initial reaction to Gritty was tepid at best after his debut, fans have quickly warmed up to the lovably eccentric misfit.

The mascot, who is just two months ago, made his national debut with an appearance on “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” On Halloween, ESPN sports columnist Tony Kornheiser dressed up as Gritty during an appearance on “Pardon the Interruption.”
