Is this the best marriage proposal video ever?

May 30, 2012|By Deborah Netburn

Isaac Lamb, we salute you.

The 31-year-old Portland-based actor is the creative force behind "Isaac's Lip-Dub Proposal," an over-the-top marriage proposal video that has gone viral on the Internet.

In the six days since the video was posted online, it has already racked up more than 11.2 million views, and with good reason. This video is INSANE.

About 60 people helped Lamb create the memorable marriage proposal, performing an elaborately choreographed street dance to the song "Marry Me" by Bruno Mars while Lamb's soon-to-be fiancee, Amy Frankel, clutched at her heart and squealed.

When the dance was over, Lamb himself appeared in a suit, and asked Frankel for her hand in marriage.

You can guess what she said.

The video is called "Isaac's Lip-Dub Proposal" because he had Frankel wear headphones to listen to the song while the dancers pretended to sing the words.

The video got a viewer boost when Mars, who has no relationship to Lamb or Frankel, tweeted a link to the video to his 9.6 million followers, 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."

While the video is getting tons of views, and even landed the happy couple an interview on the "Today" show, "Isaac's Lip-Dub Proposal" is currently outpaced by another proposal video called "The Greatest Marriage Proposal EVER!!!" that went online in 2011.

According to data compiled by the online video tracking company Visible Measures, "The Greatest Marriage Proposal" had received 16.8 million views just six days after it was posted online -- a good 4 million more than "Lip-Dub Proposal" has received in the same period time.
