In the past, you enlisted an emergency contact to pick you up from the hospital and make sure you got home safely. Now, you have an emergency cinematographer, to film your post-surgery loopiness so you can upload it to YouTube and hopefully go viral. 

Jason Mortensen woke from a hernia surgery and fell in love with his "eye candy" wife all over again, the whole thing captured in this cute viral video (H/T Daily Picks). It's like The Vow, but less traumatic and not starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams (though Jason's wife really is very pretty).

"I wish I could remember this but I was definitely out of it," Jason explains in the description. "This was my fifth surgery within our six years of marriage and she's been by my side through all of it...She is the love of my life."

The heartwarming highlight of the video is his shock and awe when he finds out the pretty lady at his bedside isn't a model but his wife, Candice. "You're my wife?!" he explains. "Holy s--t! Dang!"

The rest kind of unfolds like a free verse love poem:

Did the doctor send you? Man, you are eye candy.

You could be the prettiest woman I've ever seen...


Who are you? What's your name?

Have we kissed yet?

Do we call each other baby?


Oh my god, I hit the jackpot!

Let me see your face.

Let me see your face.


Your teeth are perfect

Turn around...



Then again, when it comes to viral videos, who knows what's real and what's not real anymore. 

In the comments, one person writers, "I am one of Jason's best friends...I can assure you this is not made up!"

Still, trust no viral video.
