Flash mob proposals are getting to be standard issue –and a bit overdone, if you ask me– but this one is REALLY good. Mark McDermott had been planning his proposal to boyfriend Yuval David for several months, getting family and friends in on the surprise. Mark decided to pop the question in December, taking advantage of NYC’s unseasonably warm weather. From the couple’s YouTube post:
December 13, 2015, was a rare spring-like day in NYC. Mark and Yuval’s family made plans to go to brunch at Bubby’s Restaurant, near Gansevoort Plaza, in the Meatpacking District of Manhattan.
Yuval had no clue what was really going on. He was simply happy, with life, love, and work all going well. He was enjoying the day with his partner and family.
Well, the day was about to get better…
As Mark and Yuval arrive by cab. Yuval hears a familiar song playing — “That’s our song!” he said to Mark, unaware that the flashmob was meant for him. (Not that it matters, but this happened literally one block from my apartment. Can you believe this is mid-December?) The couple said that they hope their proposal will
“serve as an example of how beautiful and romantic a loving relationship can be, and inspire others with love and joy, no matter the gender or sexuality of the couple. Love is love, and when it is right, passionate and deep, it is a joy to celebrate.”
Witness it here and have some Kleenex handy. Watch.
