Mickey Mouse marriage proposal goes viral
Oh, boy! It's another over-the-top wedding proposal that's quickly becoming an online sensation, thanks to a little help from Mickey Mouse and friends.
Australian videomaker Jehan Ratnatunga wasn't satisfied with a quiet moment in private to ask his girlfriend Vishanti to marry him.
He now works for YouTube in Los Angeles and decided to fly home to Melbourne to enlist an entourage of friends to stage an elaborate pop-the-question video.
''This is a really personal thing to make a YouTube video about, but it's all about love so I thought I'd make an exception,'' he says in the video, which has rocketed past 80,000 views in less than two days.
The video starts with his girlfriend watching a video of Mickey and Minnie performing her favourite song from her favourite Bollywood movie before the doorbell rings and she heads outside.
The entire Melbourne street has been blocked off with a dance troupe dressed up like Mickey Mouse.
The group begins twisting through a choeographed routine that references some of her favourite artists, including Michael Jackson, Will Smith, Rajinikanth and Beyonce.
At the end of three-minute routine Mr Ratnatunga reveals himself as the lead dancer by pulling off his Mickey Mouse head.
He drops to one knee, pulls out a ring, and they embrace with his first pumping the air.
While you can't hear her response, it's clear she said yes.
The video ends in an ever-dwindling circle closing in on the couple, just like a classic cartoon.
That's all, folks.
