At the beginning of the summer, we brought you The Most Epic Marriage Proposal Ever, and this one rivals it with a certain finesse and understatement. Understatement? Yeah, not usually a word associated with Day-Glo murals and public marriage proposals, but we noted a nice level of modesty here…and clearly, our opinions are skewed based on proposals’ relationships to the Most Epic Proposal EVER.
Shannon and Jessica, congratulations — we might even crash your wedding since it will probably be as kick-ass as this proposal (and maybe Shannon has some nice, single graffiti artist friends?).
In case you missed it (or want to watch again), here is the Most Epic Marriage Proposal EVER. This is your perfect proposal video if you’re a trained clown, have an army of friends who can dance and will do anything you say, and have a girl willing to sit still and keep her shit together while you make a proposal that lasts a lifetime.
If you’re a regular dude with a creative streak and a soft side, this is the video for you. Seriously, get a Kleenex before you watch. There’s even a golden retriever.
If you think you have Justin Timberlake moves and a Nick Lachey voice, or you’re a lady who looks for these qualities in a mate, this acceptably cheesy Battery Park boy band proposal may be just the ticket. It hits a romantic high note with an endearing streak of goofy.
If you aren’t afraid to cry your eyes out (like I did when I watched), this proposal is well-suited for you.
And if you love showtunes, Disney, and having a cast of back-up dancers, click play on this one.
Now that you all feel sappy and love-starved, feel free to post singles ads in the comments.
