You: Want to hear about how I proposed to Marsha?
Anyone: Oh, sure! Do you have a cute story?
You: Yep, I do! Gosh, you’re gonna love it. So, do you remember the iPhone application Vine?
Anyone: Hmmm…No.
You: Oh, it was the one where users could upload very short videos and share them with friends.
Anyone: Huh. I don’t remember that.
You: It was like Instagram, but with videos. The videos would replay over and over on a loop…Ringing a bell?
Anyone: Oh! YES! I had an account but never really used it. God, that was an awful app. Remember the “comedy” Vines comedians would upload? The worst. And like, remember how people would upload Vines of the fucking loudest parties, as if they had no idea someone who followed them would open up Vine to literal SCREAMS?
You: Hah. Ahh. I guess we didn’t follow the same people? I liked Vine.
Anyone: Oh. Huh. Well anyway, what does that have to do with your marriage proposal? Hahah, what, did you propose over Vine?

You: Yep!
Anyone: Hahaha.
[Pause]
You: No, I mean, that’s what I did.
Anyone: What is?
You: I proposed through a Vine.
Anyone: What?
You: I proposed through Vine, tweeted it at Marsha with the hashtag #WillYouMarryMe, and then she responded with a Tweet!
[Pause]
You: She said yes!
Anyone: I’m sorry, I don’t know if you’re joking or not?
You: I’m not joking. Why would I be joking?
Anyone: I just can’t tell.
You: Well, I’m not.
Anyone: Okay. Well, congratulations!
You: I mean, it was five years ago.
Anyone: Oh right.
You: You don’t like the proposal? It got a lot of media attention.
Anyone: Okay.
You: A LOT of blogs covered it.
Anyone: Good!
[Pause]
Anyone: Want to hear how I proposed?
You: NO.

  1. Vine and Youtube both seriously need to step their game up and do some automatic audio level limiting on all their videos.

  2. So, am I supposed to know what the hell Vine is?

  3. Score one for Macy’s.

  4. Well, if Vine has already been embraced by middle-aged people it’s ALREADY on its way out I guess? That was fast.

  5. You don’t have to tell me, I already know. I heard it through the great vine (that you did). YEAAAAAA.

  6. I wasn’t into vine at all and then a friend sent me this

    And then I was into vine.

    And then I read this and now I’m not into vine again.

    OKAY BYE!

  7. Who knew Rick Steves had a Vine account?

  8. We’re a business dedicated to getting you married. #custserv

  9. Guys, are we burying the lede here that this guy is apparently wearing hover glasses? When did this technology come out? Come on, folks, use your noodle. Follow the story the media isn’t telling us.

  10. Barf all over #willyoumarryme

  11. You can’t spell divorcement without Vine.

  12. Why on earth did she tag her reply “custserv”?
