I’m sure we can all relate to feeling like for some reason the world has decided that today, for you, will be a slightly bad day. (Is that broad enough?) A few days ago I stubbed my toe, burned my thumb on the stove, spilled coffee, spilled dinner, and cut the same thumb I burned on the stove on a tin can. WHAT?! No one I knew died or anything, and I wasn’t in the hospital, so I don’t think it’s one for the books, but certainly I think we can all agree that that is a PRETTY messed up day. Tin can?! I bet we’ve all also had days where everything seems to be going right. Your hair looks good or whatever, your favorite socks are clean, it’s pizza day. Things people like. But have you ever had BOTH OF THOSE DAYS HAPPEN TO YOU AT ONCE? EXCEPT THEY AREN’T DAYS? THEY’RE A VIRAL VIDEO? AND IT’S A PUBLIC MARRIAGE PROPOSAL VIRAL VIDEO THAT FEATURES AARON PAUL?

Oh brother! The only way I could feel even more conflicted is if Aaron Paul proposed to me on a float in a Disney World parade while singing Bruno Mars’s “Marry You”! (Thanks for the tip, Claire!)

  1. It’s really a sign that I spend too much time here that when my sister sent this to me my first thought was “KELLY NEEDS TO KNOW!”

  2. Your bad day theory is correct. Once I locked myself out of the house TWICE in the same day. Which doesn’t seem like a big deal until I add that I also locked myself out of my car. Twice. On that same day.

    (Also, a 7 minute public wedding proposal video? What, are they going for the Oscar this year?)

  3. The look she gives when she sees the camera for the first time at 1:40… I get the feeling that, as sweet as he probably is, her fiancee is some next-level Anne Hathaway-esque showboating musical theater dude.

    Much love to the happy couple! To their friends, if he asks you to dance down the aisle, you can say no!

    • At least he rented out (borrowed?) the black box theater and didn’t create a flashmob black box theatre in the middle of Halstead with 45 mimes and showtunes jazz hands. Other than sharing it online, it was pretty private considering his instinct probably was a flashmob. I don’t hate it as much as I could, but I also fast-forwarded through the boring stuff bc I’m not in their relationship and I don’t really care how the setup happened.

  4. Ugh. The level of narcissism contained within public wedding proposal videos is staggering; while I’m grateful to Videogum for consistently point this out (and I do enjoy Aaron Paul as an actor) I am just sick of seeing them. No one wants to watch your proposal, as sweet as it might be. Do it in private, and if you do it in public, don’t hire someone to film it. Have restraint. Have class. Realize that if you get divorced (50% of American marriages end up in divorce) you’ll have this as a weird public record of you failed love. Sigh.

  5. So the public marriage proposal is one thing, but can we talk about the fact that he called her dad? Before he even proposed? Eeeugh.
