The 365-Day Wedding Proposal YouTube Video Gets 5.5 Million Views [Video]

Man, marriage proposals are certainly getting more and more intense, with the viral nature of videos on YouTube causing men to want to up the ante and make sure that the time they pop the question is one that causes the whole event to go viral. Talk about pressure. Anyway, Dean Smith is causing plenty of tears online from those who love his marriage proposal video, because Smith took the time to prepare to ask his lovely girlfriend Jennifer to marry him for more than 365 days before he popped the actual question of marriage. Dean set about taping himself as he held up a whiteboard for each of the 365 days following the day he realized he really wanted to make Jennifer his wife, all 365 messages being some variation of a marriage proposal to comments about how much he really loved her. As a result, the video titled “Best Marriage Proposal of 2015 (Warning: Will Make You Cry!) – 365 Day Engagement” has gained more than 5.5 million views on YouTube since it was uploaded on January 18.

As seen in the video of Smith proposing to Jennifer 365 times before she even knew he was actually proposing, reports People, the couple is on vacation in picturesque Aruba when their family gets in on the surprise 365-day proposal and lures Jennifer out of her hotel room to a variety of places, like to the bar and eventually to the beach, wherein she sits down finally watches a video containing 365 days worth of proposals from Dean via video. Tears ensue.

With 365 days worth of video snippets edited into one video, it’s no wonder the popular proposal video is more than 15 minutes long. Dean, however, is being given kudos for recognizing that his future wife loved countdown videos, and that’s how he came up with the idea to propose via a platform that would account for 365 proposals. It’s a common theme on YouTube as of late, which shows YouTubers accounting for their actions every day for a full year — or doing some continuous action that accounts for a full 365 days — but is seemingly the first time anyone ever applied it to a marriage proposal, which would take great patience and planning to wait that long without spilling the marital beans.

Thankfully, the 365-day wedding proposal went a lot better than a recent proposal wherein a woman died after falling off a cliff in Ibiza soon after jumping in excitement over being asked to get married, as reported by the Inquisitr.
