Seven million YouTube viewers can’t be wrong, and most of them loved how Isaac Lamb, a Portland actor, proposed to his girlfriend, Amy Frankel, by getting about 60 of his friends and family to lip sync and dance to Bruno Mars’ song, Marry You. Lamb video taped the proposal and posted it on YouTube for the rest of the world to enjoy.
Lamb cleverly managed to place Amy in a position to watch and appreciate the proceedings from the rear door of a slow moving Honda, with video cameras recording both the event and Amy’s reaction to it all.
But enough talk, let’s watch:
Editor’s note: After this article was posted, the original vid was forced off of YouTube because of copyright issues, at least that is how YouTube characterizes it. The vid was replaced with one from a news agency, which supposedly has the copyright to the video–As if any of us really believe that a TV station organized and choreographed the dancers!
“I told my girlfriend to meet me at my parent’s house for dinner,” explained the 31-year-old Lamb.
“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.”
Lamb must be British because Americans would call it lip sync, not lip dub.
Amy was charmed and thrilled with the entire event, while Lamb gets credit for one of the cleverest marriage proposals on record.
This story reminds me of Jill and Kevin’s Wedding Entrance, another terrific wedding story that has over 75 million views on YouTube. Check it out.
