Subtly is woefully overrated. Douglas Langway, screenwriter and director of the BearCity films, just found a suitably cinematic way to propose to boyfriend Joseph Chapman — an especially impressive feat considering said boyfriend is currently “10,000 miles away.”
“When the love of your life is 10 thousand miles away,” Chapman posted on Facebook, “you need a really big sign to propose marriage!”
In the accompanying vid, which you can watch below, Chapman makes the best use of Times Square’s mountainous billboards, the good cheer of Broadway-drunk tourists, an iPad, and, of course, the love of his life to make a grand and sweeping statement.
The result, uh… puts the “aww” in awesome? Did we really just write that? What have we become…?
