There’s a new video that’s been making the rounds at viral speeds and it’s really quite sweet.

A man named Jason Mortenson wakes up from surgery and realizes the woman filming him is the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen.

What he doesn’t realize is she’s his wife.

The story is precious and has certainly made the rounds on Gawker, Buzzfeed etc., but sadly since the reveal that Epic Twerk Fail viral video was actually concocted and planted by Jimmy Kimmel, people are starting to question whether THIS video is genuine as well.

One Redditor dug up Jason Mortenson’s actor profile. And that has gotten people questioning whether this is another planted prank by Kimmel or one of his late-night compadres.

At the end of the day, this really just begs the question: is a viral video any less enjoyable or viral-worthy if it’s accidental rather than architected? Does the authenticity of it REALLY matter?

I'm a journalist, producer and host who thought I would get into "traditional" broadcasting until the lusty call of the Internet drew me in. I've been fortunate enough to have launched 10 web series about a wide range of niches, like: Greek culture, Wines, India and Battlestar Galactica (BSGcast FTW!). But these days I love being one-half of Nat&Marie, exploring Internet Culture and dissecting how the web affects IRL and vice versa. Instagram's my vice and Technoviking is my home boy!
