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.
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.
Cute couple, though, I should add.
Hmnn, what a yummy couple. (Still, I agree with Yaoming. Thumbs down on public proposals.)
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.
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.
Jebus, and I thought I was bitter…
How sweet and lovely. Good for you guys! I vision millions more like you. AdamHomo
cute couple, supportive office team… certainly not my approach, but if it works for these two – why not.
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?
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.
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.
Marley on Girls does it better!….lol
Typical drama queens….next they go and criticize morning goods for the win…
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 😉
“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).
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!!
Presumptuous? 10 years ago you could presume he’d get gay-bashed, then fired.
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.
@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!!
