Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen have one of the most epic bromances. Seriously, these two besties are always together, and couldn't have a more adorable friendship. Case in point: McKellen stood in for BFF Stewart when one man asked him to help to propose.
Brett Lotriet Best, a film director, wanted to propose to his boyfriend Khalid Shawwa, who also happens to be a huge Star Trek fan, with the help of Patrick Stewart, the famed Captain Picard. While Stewart was unfortunately unavailable, he sent bestie Ian McKellen in his stead, and the result is pretty amazing.
The whole video features Best holding up a series of notes and questions written out on a posters — with a super-cute clip of his boyfriend, Khalid, singing to him in between. He mentions Shawwa's love for Captain Picard, and that he needed the captain's help to ask a very important question.
"There is a question I wanted to ask, but I had to be sure," Best explains on one of his handwritten signs. "We all know how you feel about Star Trek's Captain Picard. So I searched the galaxy for Patrick Stewart and finally asked his best friend for help!"
Then, McKellen enters the screen holding a clipboard that reads, "Mookie — will you marry me?" while simultaneously explaining: "Khalid, I've got bad news for you — it's good news as well — but the bad news is, Patrick Stewart is married. I married him. Well, no, I was the minister at the wedding. He's not available."
"The good news is that Brett is available," McKellen adorably continued. "So, think it over, do the right thing."
Fittingly, Best closed out the video with a sign that read, "I would like to explore the universe with you."
Thanks to Twitter, Best confirmed that his answer was a yes! Congrats the happy couple!
