OK, so the first time I watched this live lip-dub proposal (via Andrew Heiss) (and I would call it more of a live music video proposal), it had something like 350 views and the comments all happened to mention (like the description) that the whole thing involved a Honda CRV. So I honestly thought maybe it was a commercial for a Honda CRV, and that prevented me from enjoying it. But now, after 11 million views, I guess it's real so I'm free to like it. I love that it's like 500 Days of Summer in real life!
