This Incredibly Overwrought Engagement Video Is Painful To Watch

Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.

Allow me to start by saying this (and covering my bases) – I’m sure they’re a beautiful couple. I mean, he’s an ER Doctor at Duke University and she’s a business student at Harvard. Feeling bad for these two would be like feeling bad for the prom queen because she had lipstick on her teeth. It’s misplaced emotion. But you’d think a couple with this type of wherewithal and pedigree would have the self-awareness to not create something this cringe-worthy.

To give some background behind this, the couple (Mike and Libby) were going to the San Francisco Symphony’s holiday show. With intentions to propose to her, Mike had a movie produced that he was to show to her after the holiday show was completed. He then brought her into an empty hall where the lights dimmed and the following video began playing – a recap of their past twelve months together after they had met on Tinder. And when I say the video is painful to watch, I mean it.

Set seven minutes aside, put headphones on, and press play.

I can sit here and make fun of them all I want, but fuck, they’re the ones who’ve been crushing Lake Cuomo and Capri while the rest of us sit behind our phones and computers laughing at their overly-edited engagement video. Fuck.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, she said yes.
