I'm a sucker for a good musical. Give me a story where people break into a song to make it more interesting and I'm a fan...even better when it's got great choreography. That's why shows like The Voice, Glee and Smash are don't-miss TV in my book. Yes, I know...at first glance The Voice doesn't seem to fit with the other two. There's not much choreography and it's a singing contest where the other two are scripted shows. But there's a story in there even if it's just what the singers have been through to get there and whether or not they will move on to the next round. And Smash...it's my new favorite show behind Person of Interest. If you haven't watched, summer reruns would be a great time to start...but I digress.
And I suppose that love for a good song and dance is what compelled me to click on a link to a YouTube video when I saw it on a friend's page on Facebook. I don't do that often but show me a video of a good flash mob that involves music and dancing and I'll click every time. Turns out this one wasn't a flash mob per se but you couldn't tell that from the preview. In fact, you couldn't tell much of anything from the preview. It is, however, charming and romantic and sweet...and probably a whole lot of other things too. I can't imagine the time and effort that went into this but the end result left me with a smile on my face and a tear in my eye.
So if you're not on Facebook and haven't seen it (although I hear CBS was promoting it as a story on their Evening News), it's worth the time. A real feel-good moment that proves love is alive and well. Enjoy!
P.S. Did you catch the fact that the people on the screens of the laptops are friends/family participating via Skype? Too cute. I'm telling Kayla she can only say "yes" to a guy who tops this proposal...in ten years or so, of course.
