People called it out-rageous and xenophobe when the couple arrived.

While everyone present at the event seemed to be enjoying it, viewers were surprised by this unusual video and referred to this as a xenophobe undertone to the relationship between the white woman and her black husband. One person wrote: “I’m so glad I don’t know anyone that thinks this is okay.” Another one commented: “I can’t believe all those sisters in there cheering him on.” One expressed: “I do not like this and I don’t see the humor at all.” And many viewers were not impressed with the fact that kids were also watching it. “This would have been the PERFECT time to say “no children at the reception”, another one said.

However, talking about that video to the Daily Dot, Alexander described the dance as actually a homage to his dad, who loves the song Atomic Dog. “[My dad] made his dance for it [a] a long time ago. And ever since, it’s been passed down to my oldest sister and then me,” he explained. And the idea to put him on a lease was a joke, indicating the fact that finally, his wife had married him after dating for six years. Alexander further explained: “It was showing that she finally got me.” “There was nothing like “Oh, well that’s my chattel owner,” he added.
