A Proposal Four Years in the Making
After their first date, Jack Hyer decided that he wanted to marry Rebecca Strellnauer -eventually. Over the next four years, while he made sure, he constructed an elaborate music video lip-synching to “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by The Proclaimers with clips of their travels in 26 different countries.
It’s an epic effort, but this kind of open-ended project is not so difficult when you are just thinking about proposing. After all, he could have decided at any point not to let her in on the purpose of the video and abandon it completely. But the round-the-world travel makes the end product really special. We wish them all the happiness in the world. But honestly, why does it take four years to go from deciding to marry someone to the actual proposal? (via Time)
