    Oh boy, did I ever tear up! Beautiful!!

    So, who wants to guess that the girl in the red dress made the whole dance?

    But HOW did she get 60 odd random friends and family so well coordinated??

    I heard that he's an actor, so I'm guessing these are theater people, or at least a good portion of them are, which would explain the higher these average talent.

    That was amazing. Wow. Thanks for posting it.

    The dancing Jews thing was hysterically funny.

    That took place here in Portland (makes sense, huh?). The first time I saw the video was on the evening news here with my H. I told him I would have been impressed had he pulled that off for our proposal. He said most definitely "since I don't even know 60 people!".

    And I thought this was cute from Bruno Mars (from the LA Times):

    The video got a viewer boost when Mars, who has no relationship to Lamb or Frankel, tweeted a link to the video to his 9.6 million followers, writing, "Congrats to Isaac Lamb and the future Mrs. I don't think I could've made a better music video for this song. Thank you."

    I got the impression, just guessing simply from the expressions on their faces that the 2nd couple and I think the 4th (doing the bit about the chapel and having a ring) might be their parents?

    Ah.

    There's not a snowballs chance in a hot spot that my bf, should he ever feel like proposing, would be able to find even 5 of his friends able to dance and sing, or pretend that they're singing...

    Your bf has 5 friends?

    We're in the middle of moving, and BF came up with two, count 'em, TWO, folks he felt comfortable asking for help.
