These days it seems as if people who propose to their significant other do so with a wildly public gesture that ends up on the Internet as a viral video. Whether or not these moments are meant to be shared with the Web, it wouldn't be shocking to find out that people were actively trying to outdo other viral videos and attain some Internet fame while also locking down their future spouse. However, despite any fatigue that comes with these videos, they can still be surprising and incredibly affecting.
The most recent one making the rounds is just that, and it raises the bar considerably for anyone else looking to pop the question while also racking up the hits on YouTube.
Here's the story: Dustin took a trip with a friend to a Salt Lake City Home Depot under the pretense of helping to pick out lighting for a party. However, he was quickly rerouted to the lumber aisle, where he was met by a number of his friends and family who began to perform a choreographed routine to the pop song "Somebody Loves You" by Australian singer Betty Who. After several minutes, and after snapping pictures for posterity, Dustin is met by his boyfriend, Spencer, who has two very important questions for his beau.
The video is understandably proving to be one of the most popular of the month. Since it was posted on Wednesday, it has received more than 1 million viewson YouTube and appeared on several news sites.
What do you think of Spencer's bold act? Would you ever enlist a flash mob to ask someone to marry you?
