Social media, especially Twitter has since been flooded with comments about the viral KFC video, looking for the couple and now having found them and planning a wedding.

Donations are flooding in with some offering to DJ at their wedding and others offering to make their invitations. Audi South Africa has offered to drive the couple anywhere they need to go, while Castle Lite has offered to pay for the couples honeymoon.
