THIS VIDEO HAS been pretty hot on the internets lately. I could see why it’d be charming for some — Jack Hyer clearly put a lot of thought into the process and production, and he stuck to his original vow of, “I’m going to marry this girl some day,” written in his travel journal so many years ago. I wonder though, did he always intend on using this video footage for his new fiancée? Or was it more the thought of, “I’m going to make this video in the hope that I end up with this one girl, but if it doesn’t work out, I can still use it for someone else”? Because not going to lie, the gamble of a breakup was certainly there.

I’m glad it worked out though, and props to Mr. Hyer, who upped the ante for all men in the prospective stage of planning a proposal.
