Want To See Something Adorable?

Eustacia's best friend since middle school at least has been dating the same young man since her 9th grade. Those things usually don't last, but this relationship has, and the guy, Brad, proposed to the girl, Lisa, just the other day.

They both play Super Mario quite a bit, so Brad used some sort of auxiliary software to modify the game and insert a message in the coin configuration, and then he set up a video camera where Lisa wouldn't notice. While Lisa was playing the game, the coins spelled out "Will you marry me," and her reaction and her acceptance of the proposal as he kneeled beside her with a ring was caught on tape. It's cute.

Brad put the video on youtube, and the story started getting around. The Telegraph caught wind of it and posted the video on their site, and The Huffington Post wrote about it, linking to the Telegraph article. If you google this thing, you'll find all sorts of stories about it from here to the U.K. Isn't it a weird world we live in? And do you think this is adorable?
