How to Propose 2010

Remember when a guy would wait for that one quiet moment, sometime during an intimate dinner or while watching the sunset, to ask his girl to marry him?  That minute, frozen in time, a memory only reserved for those two people?

Yeah, well, welcome to 2010.

Flash mobs, props, public spaces and cameras are all  the rage in the “Will You Marry Me?” market today.

While public displays and viral videos might not be for everyone, you gotta hand it to some of these guys.  They are really getting creative.  Take, for example, Woodrow, a recent circus school graduate who got some of his buddies in the filmmaking biz to set up a faux documentary being filmed in the middle of Madison Square Park in NYC.  Someone approaches Woodrow as he strolls through the park with his beloved, Claudine, and asks him for a quick interview for his documentary (all of which is entirely believable on any given day in any given locale in the Big Apple).  After some convincing, the filmmaker tells Claudine to have a seat for a minute while he takes Woodrow a few feet away to ask him a few questions. Next thing you know, music starts playing and …well, the rest is soon to be viral video history.

The video is clever, funny, goofy and endearing to say the least.  Take a look for yourself and tell me, what do you think?  Would you like a proposal like this or are you more of a private moment kind of person?

    Did he make a professional video of this? I see other video cameras so I am wondering if he actually had a good version made. Can’t believe this isn’t all over every morning show. Don’t Meredith and Matt (Today Show) and Ellen Degeneres read this blog? They are missing out! :)
