To cleanse the palate, this one’s at 8.4 million YouTube views and counting — in five days. Behold the power of a fully armed and operational celebrity Twitter account:
About 60 people helped Lamb create the memorable marriage proposal, performing an elaborately choreographed street dance to the song “Marry Me” by Bruno Mars while Lamb’s soon-to-be fiancee, Amy Frankel, clutched at her heart and squealed…
The video is called “Isaac’s Lip-Dub Proposal” because he had Frankel wear headphones to listen to the song while the dancers pretended to sing the words.
The video got a viewer boost when Mars, who has no relationship to Lamb or Frankel, tweeted a link to the video to his 9.6 million followers, writing, “Congrats to Isaac Lamb and the future Mrs. I don’t think I could’ve made a better music video for this song. Thank you.”
It’s darned impressive, but there are two types of people in the world, my friends: Those who want “jazz hands” to be part of their memories of proposing marriage and those who don’t. I’ll leave you to guess which group I’m in. Exit question for the ladies: Scale of one to 10, what’s the swoon factor here? Perfect 10 or does a point get deducted for the jazz hands?
