On Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012, I told my girlfriend to meet me at my parent's house for dinner. When she arrived I had stationed my brother to sit her in the back of an open Honda CRV and give her some headphones. He "wanted to play her a song"...
What she got instead was the world's first Live Lip-Dub Proposal.
Enjoy!

That was pretty damn good!
I want to tell my daughter she can't get married until someone goes at least that far to ask her!
(but then I did tell her on her first date that if he didn't hold the car door for her, she sould dump him, lol)

I'd feel a LOT better out of it if they didn't feel the need to go on TV talk shows. They just lost a TON of cred in my estimation.

Still a great vid.

The fact that he's an actor makes it ok? To me, that's even worse. Makes you wonder if he did all that for her or for his career.

I just have no respect for TV talk shows or the people who want to go on them.

Professional actors have agents.

This is what agents do.

This is what TV talk shows do.

Make a viral video and you will find out.

Since you don't have an agent maybe you'd say no. I doubt it, but then again, you're Diddy.

His first post in the first person certainly implies that it's DDS and his girlfriend.



"On Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012, I told my girlfriend to meet me at my parent's house for dinner. When she arrived I had stationed my brother to sit her in the back of an open Honda CRV and give her some headphones. He "wanted to play her a song"...

I'm trying to understand your point with the agents and such. Are you saying that because he's an actor (assuming he has an agent) and he put out a video that went viral, his agent booked him on talk shows, and it's great because that's what actors and agents do?

My point here is that if I posted an amazing video of my incredible proposal, I would want it out there for everyone to enjoy, but I personally feel like going on TV to talk about it on talk shows demeans it and makes it less special. The fact that he's an actor and may be using this for his career is even worse, because how he's not only making it into a dog and pony show, but he's doing so for business reasons. Just ruins the romance for me. That video should be about him and his love and their friends and family. I don't see the need to make it into a 15 minutes of fame thing.

There's also a link there. The video is best shown, IMO, with that introduction from the guy who proposed

I aint got the kinda chops this guy has. Nor am I as young, or even close to as lucky in love

I never said it was great.

But put yourself in his place, as an actor.

You do something for love and it goes viral.

The talk shows start calling the agent.

You're not ashamed of it, or your love... you want to shout it to the world.

At the same time this maybe will help your professional future which will, hopefully, help the woman you love.

Also, folks just wanna just know more about this and a talk show aint a bad place to add more to the story.

You're going on a talk show or two. That's what's gonna happen.


That's what I'd think, but then I've never proposed to a beautiful woman before, and you have.

Gotcha. I'm not saying it was a bad idea for his career, I'm just saying I think it devalues the moment by commercializing it.

Yeah, I'd normally say any public proposal devalues it. Seems a rather intimate thing to ask.

This one may be the exception

whats so bad about talk shows? were talking about good morning / live w regis type shows right?

its a human interest story.... if you wanna be mad, be mad at everyone interested....

i really dont see anything wrong w it tho. i doubt his initial motivation was to be on tv.
