This video was taken by hotel guests at the Vancouver Marriott, who had a hotel room overlooking the set of The Fantastic Four 2.

Because we're nerds and we read the weekly tabs regularly, we know that the scene they were shooting was Jessica Alba aka Sue Storm's wedding.

Warning: Extreme Canadian accents can be heard on this videop.
