Strange... But Cool... I Think... Wait...

Man proposes in a very unusual manner... (Link)
"as [you've] informed us that respect chills love, it is natural to conclude that all your pretty flights arise from your pampered sensibility; and that, vain of this fancied preeminence of organs, you foster every emotion till the fumes, mounting to your brain, dispel the sober suggestions of reason. It is not in this view surprising that when you should argue you become impassioned, and that reflection inflames your imagination instead of enlightening your understanding." - Mary Wollstonecraft

[Movie Trailer Voice]

In a strange world ruled by sanity.

Where good taste prevailed.

There was one woman who willing to play by her own rules.

[Clip of scene from the movie. Woman on date.]

Not as creative as the one guy who made a movie trailer out of his proposal and his girlfriend was in the audience, and then it shows him running to that theatre on screen and he meets her in person.

That was really slick.

I thought it was depressing. The "Please vote for use at the Ultimate Proposal Contest!" is quite a sad ending. Not as bad as Tess, but getting there.
