Here is my dream television-inspired public marriage proposal: Aaron Paul picks me up from my apartment in a nice car. He’s wearing a suit, but the rest of him looks like it does on Breaking Bad. We encounter no traffic on the way to the Empire Hotel, where we have cocktails served by Chuck Bass himself. Afterwards we head to a replica of Luke’s Diner, from Gilmore Girls, and have dinner prepared be a fancy chef (not Luke). Melissa McCarthy, as Sookie, brings it to our table. At this point I’m thinking, “Uh-oh, what’s going on here?!” After dinner, we take a walk through a replica of the streets of Stars Hollow and then get on a private jet piloted by Bryan Cranston. “I didn’t even know Bryan Cranston had his pilot’s license,” I whisper to Aaron. “He doesn’t!” he says. “Just kidding!” he says immediately. “Hmm, that’s something we’ll have to work on,” I think. We land in Paris. “I’m going to take you somewhere you’ve always wanted to go,” Aaron says. Oh my god. Could it be? He continues, “…Central Perk.” NO. WAY. We ride a tandem bike to Central Perk. “I didn’t even know they had a Central Perk anywhere, let alone Paris,” I say. “They didn’t,” he says. Omg. Gunther is there and he asks what we’d like. “I’d love a coffe,” I say. “Great, I’ll have our new waitress bring it right over to you.” In a few minutes Rachel — THE RACHEL — comes out with a latte. Aaron notices this isn’t what I ordered and says, “I’ll go up and fix this.” He gets up immediately and I turn around to tell him that it’s totally fine and I like lattes too, and see that he is ON HIS KNEE ASKING ME TO MARRY HIM. Whaaaaat! I say yes. The End. This lady proposed to her girlfriend with a Glee thing, though.

(The actual proposal doesn’t come until about seven minutes into the video, FYI.) (It comes in during a Kermit the Frog themed part?) (Obviously I cannot knock LOTS of themes.) If you were on the other end of this marriage proposal, at what point do you think you’d realize that it was a marriage proposal and not just a weird thing your significant other was doing? Immediately? “Oh boy, they’re all wearing Warblers costumes? I SAY YES!” Normally we would have to rehash all of the things we don’t like about marriage proposals that are seemingly done 70% for YouTube, but it is a nice day out today and they cried at the end, which was sweet, and I’m sure they’re in love and, my god, it is SUCH A NICE DAY OUT IN NEW YORK CITY TODAY, so they get a pass. Go on, you two crazy Glee lovebirds. Go live your teenage dreams. (Via BuzzFeed.)

  1. Maybe explaining to the kids why you need a trial separation can be American Horror Story themed?

    • til I saw the bank draft of $5535, I did not believe that…my… friends brother could actualy receiving money in their spare time from there pretty old laptop.. there dads buddy had bean doing this 4 only 14 months and just now paid for the mortgage on there appartment and bought a brand new Chevrolet. I went here,………..

  2. That “yes” seemed a little forced if you ask me.

  3. Is Glee still on TV?

  4. I want a Cougar Town themed marriage proposal. By which I mean we should just be hanging out at home drinking wine when it happens.

  5. Mine is definitely Adam Scott telling me he likes me and he loves me as he gets on one knee in a city hall somewhere. RuPaul is there telling me I didn’t fuck it up and then we go get some Bob’s Burgers.

  6. I like how Kelly’s dream proposal shows that she is completely easy-going and not at all high maintenance because she didn’t care that Jennifer Aniston messed up her order.

  7. Kelly, there actually is a Central Perk in Beijing! A man who really loves Friends built it in an apartment building. Cool earth!

  8. You combine this proposal instead performed by Star Wars characters covered in glitter and basically you’ve created the trifecta of guilty-pleasures-I-cannot-let-go-of-no-matter-how-much-they-hurt-me-emotionally-and-socially.

  9. I saw a flash mob the other day of people on bicycles doing the Thriller dance. I kept waiting for one of them to wipe out and get a spinal injury or chip their teeth. Also, my dog was pooping so they performed for me and my pooping dog. No proposals, just people tempting fate.


  11. “Rainbow Connection” always makes me ridiculously sad, but otherwise this was a great proposal.
