Man’s 365-Day Proposal Video Goes Viral, Gets Yes For An Answer

A 365-day proposal ended up getting yes for an answer. Dean Smith started making the videos on January 8, 2014, but girlfriend Jennifer Kessel had no idea. As of today, the video has nearly 8 million views.

Smith’s plan was to pop the big question to Kessel on her 26th birthday during a family vacation in Aruba. Until that time, he made a video each day, holding up whiteboards and declaring his love.

In the videos, he was engaged in everyday activities like brushing his teeth, holding a puppy, and eating breakfast. Snippets of the couple spending time together also appear throughout the footage.

I knew that Jennifer was a fan of proposal videos on YouTube and would tear up at the sincerity and thoughtfulness of each proposal. She showed several of them to me, and I decided that I wanted to make her tear up to her own proposal.
