When it comes to unique proposal ideas, we've seen our fair share. But Michael DiMeo's flash mob proposal to his boyfriend during a dodgeball game may just take the cake — and definitely will have you crying some happy tears.
It started as a normal day in Pittsburgh as any dodgeball tournament would. However, DiMeo had bigger plans for his boyfriend, Angelo. He created a plan to propose during the tourney that would make Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller jealous, sharing on his YouTube page about the event. "[Angelo] has no idea he's about to see a group of his friends start dancing to some of his favorite songs. But why wasn't he invited to dance?!?!" The reason, of course, is because Angelo is about to get engaged.
DiMeo executed the heart-warming proposal to his boyfriend perfectly, having his friends join in the dodgeball game to play the (surprisingly) competitive sport — and then turning into a flash mob, according to New Now Next. The group performed several songs including "I'm Your Baby Tonight" by Whitney Houston and "G.U.Y." by Lady Gaga (complete with some swing dancing), and then DiMeo, ready to pop the question, entered in a full suit (even though proposing in dodgeball gear would have been just as cute).
Once in the gym, he and the rest of the flash mob danced to "Trumpets" by Jason Derulo before finishing out with the obvious choice, "Marry You," by Bruno Mars. Cue all the feels!
And we're not the only ones crying, that's for sure. It's clear that unsuspecting Angelo is totally feeling the love, as he is seen throughout the video covering his mouth and weeping in surprise. At the end of the serenade, DiMeo's friend hands him flowers as he brings his beau to the center of the gym and asks him the question anyone in love wants to hear, "I love you, you mean the world to me. Will you marry me?" The two lock in an embrace as the crowd cheers, and well, the rest is history. It's too cute to be true, really.
"He had no idea this was coming and his reaction was everything I had hoped for, priceless! To all the people who helped me put this event together, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you friends, thank you family and thank you Stonewall Sports Pittsburgh! Here's to a new chapter! I love you all!" DiMeo shared on his YouTube page. Watch the adorable video below.
