Marry You lip-dub proposal gets yes

02:28, May 28 2012

It's a marriage proposal unlike anything you've seen before, and has shot to viral video status.

Isaac Lamb popped the question to his girlfriend Amy Frankel calling it the "first live lip-dub proposal" - a choreographed dance routine that has been viewed more than 2.2 million times on YouTube.

Set to Bruno Mars' song Marry You, the US actor enlisted the help of 60 friends to choreograph a production to win his girlfriend's hand in marriage.

Lamb's now fiancée put on headphones and sat in the back of a moving car while a parade-like sequence unfolded before her. Only she could hear the music, while her family and friends took part in the elaborate mime.

The lip-dub included a marching band, dancing and simultaneous performances from absent friends using Skype. The video shows a picture-in-picture of Frankel's delight. The pair met through auditions for a local production of West Side Story six years ago and reportedly bonded over their love of lip-dubs.

"To be honest it's a little overwhelming. I'm really, really, really touched by how positive people's reactions have been," Lamb told The Oregonian

"The love I genuinely feel for my fiancé has touched other people. I never expected this and I'm really amazed by the response. My intention was never to make a viral video."

The happy couple told the paper they had been contacted by The Today Show, Good Morning America and Ellen DeGeneres.

Even the singer himself has contacted Lamb via twitter writing ‏"Congrats to Isaac Lamb and the future Mrs.. I don't think I could've made a better music video for this song. Thank you."
