Bing! He Said Yes

WATCH: Employee’s Surprise Proposal At Google

Google employee, Shaun Aukland, surprised his boyfriend with a proposal during lunch. Little did Michael know, Shaun was planning to ask him to get married with the help of his fellow employees. A group of singers performed the go-to engagement song (Bruno Mars’ “Marry You”) with Shaun getting down on one knee at the end. Spoiler alert: He said yes.

Congrats to the happy couple! Let’s hope many more years together for these two.

    That’s very sweet. Wish them the best.

  • yaoming

    I don’t see why this has to be done publically like this (for gays or straights). Seems kind of imposing and presumptious to me.

  • yaoming

    Cute couple, though, I should add.

  • Eric Auerbach

    Hmnn, what a yummy couple. (Still, I agree with Yaoming. Thumbs down on public proposals.)

  • Sohobod

    I had to watch through the fingers covering my eyes. So embarrassingly naff; my sphincter constricted to the point that I thought it would never un-clench.
    Please do things like that it private – gay or straight.

  • viveutvivas

    Can we just get over this kind of thing. It’s squicky and classless when straight do it. It’s no less squicky and classless when gays do it.

  • tardis

    Jebus, and I thought I was bitter…


    How sweet and lovely. Good for you guys! I vision millions more like you. AdamHomo

  • vonric

    cute couple, supportive office team… certainly not my approach, but if it works for these two – why not.

  • Fael

    Can we stop being jealous!? What’s wrong with a public proposal? If I’m not mistaken people marry to divide and announce their love to the world, is not it?

  • JustinMar

    Im glad Im not the only tainted one. I winced at the shamelessness, then I glared at the thought that this could be some google ploy to appeal to homosexuals. Cynicle is the word.

  • MidahoX

    I personally think it is super cute. This is their company, their coworkers. Some of the coworkers will get invited to the wedding anyway. So I don’t see there is anything wrong with this. Seriously, If you are going to propose, make it bold because you only do it once.

  • balehead

    Marley on Girls does it better!….lol

  • balehead

    Typical drama queens….next they go and criticize morning goods for the win…

  • bledoutcolor

    Omg totes adurbs. These two are so cute, and props to google for being so awesome to its queer employees! This is why I don’t use Bing people ;)

  • yaoming

    “Don’t use Bing”? I don’t use it either, but not because I think Microsoft has anything against gays. They’ve been pretty good, as far as I can tell. As for this video, it’s just a lunch-room flash-mob… hardly an endorsement from Sergey and Larry (not that I think they’d have a problem with it).

  • Aries3dc

    Several people have already said this, but it bares repeating: Marriage proposals should be a private matter! It’s all cute and great until someone says “NO” and everybody feels awkward! And besides, not every moment of our lives should be a reality show. This moment is so special…it truly belongs to them, but everybody!!

  • mramseymd

    Presumptuous? 10 years ago you could presume he’d get gay-bashed, then fired.

  • mramseymd

    It’s a big deal that this major American Corporation is so gay-friendly; that’s news. I agree that public proposals are icky; I celebrate the recognition that they should be equally icky. JustinMar, the word is NOT cynicle; it’s “cynical”. The last time I checked, the U.S. doesn’t have marriage equality. This will be a big deal until there is nothing left that is a big deal.

  • JustinMar

    @mramseymd: My bad. What’s worst is I know the difference and had the nerve to set it up with ‘Cynicle is the word.’ Thanks for my healthy, daily dose of shame hahaha!!
