Dean knew his girlfriend Lauren was a huge fan of boy bands in her teen years and decided to create a fake boy band called Fancy to propose to her on Christmas Eve. He recorded a cheesy music video with his friends of their latest supposed hit “Abacus,” which naturally, ended with a marriage proposal.
The music video is filled with stereotypical boy band scenes, including choreographed dance moves and a scene with Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the USA backdrop. This was the first year Lauren went to his family’s house for Christmas so it was a big deal to begin with — imagine getting a proposal on top of that?
Dean is most definitely raising the bar for any other guy thinking of proposing. Previously, we’ve seen a variety of lip dub proposals, including one to One Direction, and a proposal by an illusionist. Soon there’s going to be a reality show on who can come up with the most creative, outlandish “viral video” proposal — you just watch.
Do you think the simple old restaurant proposal is enough now or do you prefer out of the box proposals?
