VIRAL VIDEO: Lip-dub proposal
RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – Proposals can be stressful for both parties involved, from the anticipation, to the planning, and then the actual moment of question. Will the answer be yes? One proposal-planning man from Portland, Oregon decided to up the ante for his beloved by creating an elaborate live “lip-dub” proposal. If you’re not savvy with that lingo, a lip-dub is a group lip-sync to a song, usually involving choreography. In this case, Isaac Lamb, a thespian, incorporated about 60 people (including friends of the couple) to help him propose with fun, dramatic flare to his girlfriend Amy Frankel. As of this posting, the viral video has been viewed on YouTube nearly eight million times!
Lamb describes the proposal in his own words at the beginning of the video clip:
“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.” The song played was Bruno Mars’ “Marry You.”
In case you’re wondering…she said yes.
