This unique campaign gives us the chance to revisit some of the funniest, most original and just downright awesome marriage proposals ever uploaded to YouTube. We’ve had a hard time finding any proposals by women, but as you’ll shortly see, many men still do it right.
#1: GUY PRETENDS TO JUMP OFF THE BUILDING
This proposal is already a classic: A guy asks his girlfriend of four years and some friends to join him on the roof. He stands on the edge, asks a friend to toss him the engagement ring… and the rest his history.
#2: THIS GUY CAN SING!
No great acrobatics here and no jumping off buildings. This lovable guy proposes to his girlfriend by singing to her, and boy, can he sing!
#3: LIVING IN A MOVIE
This is one of the most shared marriage proposal videos of all time, and for a good reason: a guy from Australia concocted a very elaborate plan that includes an excellent proposal video, a theater packed with friends and family, and the perfect ending.
#4: MIND THE GAP!
It sometimes takes a quiet British lad to pull off a Hollywood-style production: this man hired a group called the Adam Street Singers to sit in his girlfriend’s train carriage and to “spontaneously” start singing “Lovely Day”. Then he enters the carriage, and surprises her with a ring.
#5: LIP-DUB AWESOMENESS
This is arguably the best proposal of the lot, and certainly the funniest: A guy tells his girlfriend to meet him at his parents’ house for dinner. What happens next is the world’s first Live Lip-Dub Proposal. A must watch!
#6: TOP GUN IN REVERSE
This Swedish firefighter has actually managed to clear a runway to propose to his pilot girlfriend. She is somewhat less emotional or overwhelmed than her American counterparts; yet, weirdly, this makes the clip extra special and moving.
#7: CALIFORNIA WOMAN
Hurray! We’ve found one woman with guts to spare. In this video, an unsuspecting man is ambushed with a flash mob at Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga, California. You can skip ahead to 3:29 and watch his girlfriend get down on one knee.
