This Man Pulled Off the Most Epic Proposal of All Time — With a Sloth

There's no denying that Kristen Bell popularized the slow-moving sloth back in 2012 when she freaked the F out on Ellen about the long-clawed creature. Ever since, scores of Americans have become obsessed with the cute, albeit sometimes creepy, mammal that stole Bell's heart long ago. But if you're not one of these mega-sloth fans just yet (and yes, we're totally judging you if you're not), then we guarantee this epic proposal will change your mind entirely.

Instead of popping the question on a horse-drawn carriage or at a romantic, candlelit dinner, Walter Mccann from Tampa, Florida had a way — and we mean WAY — better proposal idea in mind. On Wednesday, the soon-to-be fiancé took his girlfriend, Carly Corvin, to Busch Gardens where she got to meet her favorite furry creature in a private session with one of the theme park's employees. But Corvin had no idea what was to happen next after she was introduced to the park's famous two-toed sloth, Harry.

In the video, Corvin literally cannot contain her excitement as she stands only feet away from Harry, who seems perfectly ~chill~ in this situation, as sloths generally do. The Busch Garden employee asks squealing Corvin if she'd like to feed Harry, to which of course she receives an excited, "Yes!" in response. Then the most magical thing happens — Mccann takes the top off of the hungry sloth's meal, and it reveals to his girlfriend a plate of vegetables that spells out "Will you marry me?"


Obviously Corvin exclaims yes, because we mean... SLOTH. PROPOSAL. How could anyone with a heart say no to that?! After the couple went from boyfriend and girlfriend to fianceés, they were greeted by their closest friends and family who were hiding in the wings to celebrate with them on this very special, very sloth-tastic day.

"I told him before that if he proposed with a sloth, there was no way I could say, 'no,'" Corvin told Fox 13 News. "So, he took my good advice. This is literally the best day of my life!"

And now I'm just waiting for a man who will propose to me with a penguin. Is that so hard to ask?
