THE BIG ASK

Elle (Canada) - - Relationship -

Com­ing up with a cre­ative and stand­out mar­riage pro­posal is a big chal­lenge. Here are three that went vi­ral. Spoiler: They all got a “yes.”

The one with Harry Pot­ter (546,000 views) With Dis­ney-level pro­duc­tion values, one man sent his Pot­ter­head love on a wiz­ard­ing­world-themed scav­enger hunt that ul­ti­mately ends in a rather spe­cial “Hor­crux.”

The one with the movie theatre (33,000,000 views) A woman goes to the movies only to end up watch­ing a “trailer” of her boyfriend mak­ing an epic jour­ney to the theatre. Cut to the present mo­ment, and there he is, in the real world, on one knee.

The one with Mickey Mouse (13,500,000 views) A flash­mob, Dis­ney­land and Bruno Mars’ “Marry You”: three rea­sons this video from 2011 launched many all-sing­ing, all­danc­ing copy­cats.

Tip: Our dig­i­tal di­rec­tor, Steve Kawalit, ac­tu­ally has a YouTube pro­posal video of his own. (It was at Face­book HQ—Sh­eryl and Mark were there!) Here’s his num­ber one piece of ad­vice for any­one plan­ning to do like­wise: “Bring a pack of tis­sues. If she says yes, ex­pect the tears to flow. If it’s a no, ex­pect the tears to flow.” h
