Proposals have always been terrifying, but at least they used to be simple to set up. All you needed was some wine, a candle and a bended knee. But in the age of YouTube, asking someone to marry you now requires props, a film editor and a drone operator.
I mean, look at this epic. How are the rest of us supposed to compete with this?
Brit Ian Coulson reruited his friend and future father in law to record this ultra-professional masterpiece, acting out scenes from girlfriend Lizzy’s favourite films including Lord of the Rings and Star Wars.
(Apparently their first date was marathoning episodes 1-6. After that, marriage looks easy.)
Coulson then recorded her live reaction to the video and luckily, she said yes. Otherwise this would have been a straight-to-DVD catastrophe.
