While we’re becoming less impressed with large-scale proposals involving intense choreography and multiple participants, we’re more fascinated by super-creative proposals that involve, say, real videogames or nostalgia of any kind. With that in mind, how lucky is this dude, whose Redditor girlfriend proposed to him with a Scott Pilgrim comic books–inspired scavenger hunt?
Upon arriving in Toronto, she handed her boyfriend, Dylan, a series of envelopes, each containing a page from Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim comics. He had to lead them around Toronto, identifying and finding the real-life counterpart of the spot that appears in the comic: Sneaky Dee’s, Pizza Pizza, Lee’s Palace, and so on. After they reached the famous Casa Loma (where Ramona Flowers’ ex-boyfriend Lucas Lee was filming a movie in Book Two), she popped the question and Dylan earned himself a fiancée.
She even made sure he was wearing the T-shirt pictured on the day of the proposal. And — get this — in a true gender twist, she asked his mother for permission to marry him, rather than the other way around. Aw. Here’s how she told it:
I thought it would be a nice spin on tradition (the guys asking the girls father). It was hilarious though. We spent time in the kitchen laughing and her telling me that if I took him I couldn’t bring him back. No return policy.
Another aspect that we (and a bunch of Redditors) loved: The super-cool rings (pictured below) that she scored for cheap on Ebay. Take that, DeBeers: Now these are special. Just like the proposal. Congrats, you cute couple, you!
