As promised, the wedding ceremony between a man named Sal9000 and Nene Anegasaki, a character from the Nintendo DS game Love Plus, was filmed and broadcast across the internet. It's predictably sad.

Fortunately, a shred of hope for humanity was preserved when it was revealed that Sal9000 orchestrated the event as a piece of performance art—although it is unclear how serious he is actually taking the relationship. Apparently, he has sexed up his fair share of virtual girlfriends, so it is probably only a matter of time before technology progresses and he finds himself another woman with bigger and better...rendering.
