There is still true love out there, people! Today, it comes in the form of the most creative, romantic marriage proposal we have seen in a long, long time.
Portland actor Isaac Lamb wanted to pop the question to his girlfriend Amy Frankel, but simply getting down on one knee and pulling out a ring clearly isn’t his style. He asked about 60 of their friends and family to help plot and participate in an elaborate choreographed lip-dub of Bruno Mars’ song “Marry You.”
The shocked bride-to-be was wearing headphones while sitting in the back of a slow-moving Honda CRV with the hatch open as a live musical unfolded before her eyes. Lamb, clearly a meticulous planner, made sure to outfit the SUV with cameras, capturing Amy’s sweet surprised expression as she watches her friends and family dance in and out of the street. At one point, a group of dancers approaches her with open laptops to reveal video of more people, who we assume are other friends who could not be there in person, dancing along to the song.
We were in tears after the first 60 seconds, but we really lost it when Isaac finally emerged from the back of the crowd and walked up to Amy as the SUV rolled to a stop. The crowd surrounded him, visibly excited, as he got down on one knee, said all the right things, and asked her to marry him (she said yes, duh!). Their group of friends and family burst out into cheers and so did we!
The video has gone viral on YouTube with more than five million views in just four days. Scores of well-wishers have commented on the clip, sending their congratulations, and it’s easy to see why it has touched so many people after you watch it for yourself.
