In this age of flash mobs, social media and cutesy marriage proposals, why not combine all three to make a wedding proposal designed to make the Internet collectively go, ‘aaawwww!!’? Others have tried, but one really has to appreciate the extent of planning and sheer effort that has gone into this particular marriage proposal posted on Vimeo by one Isaac Lamb.
In his video description Lamb says, “On Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012, I told my girlfriend to meet me at my parent’s house for dinner. When she arrived I had stationed my brother to sit her in the back of an open Honda CRV and give her some headphones. He “wanted to play her a song”…What she got instead was the world’s first Live Lip-Dub Proposal. Enjoy!”
Enter a full fledged cast of dancers, actors and even a marching band lip synching and performing a song that only Amy can hear on a pair of headphones as she is slowly driven down the street.
The song is a little dorky, boasting lyrics like, “Its a beautiful night we’re looking for something dumb to do.. hey baby I think I want to marry you” and “don’t say no no no no no… say yeah yea yea yea yea”
But really dorkiness aside, the song makes the video a little bit more perfect.
It is not unusual for inspired romantics to put their proposals online. Malaysian blogger Timothy Tiah won hearts the world over when he used Internet memes to propose to his girlfriend Ooi. The video which was shot by a Malaysian wedding footage company, shows Tiah surprising Ooi while she was having dinner with friends at an Italian restaurant in Kuala Lumpur on Nov. 30.
At first, Tiah nervously walks to the restaurant’s glass entrance and waves from outside to get Ooi’s attention.
Ooi, 26, appears bewildered as a grinning Tiah holds up a series of posters imprinted with Internet memes that narrate how he wants to spend the rest of his life with Ooi despite being terrified of marriage.
