Proposal stories always go over well with the online video masses, but they’re even more exciting when they’re meticulously planned down to the last letter. That’s why the 1000th video by Craig Benzine (known as WheezyWaiter to his fans) is so epic.
Benzine used the first letter from each of his previous 19 videos to spell out the phrase “Chyna will you marry me,” labeling his 1000th video with a question mark to complete the proposal. Acting like there was something wrong, he asked his girlfriend, Chyna Pate, to “check” if the 20 videos’ first letters said anything. As she finished deciphering the acronym, Benzine got down on one knee with the ring and officially proposed.
The message of Benzine’s 1000th video took three months to make, and obviously required a whole lot of planning even before that. The description for the video says (in a very tongue-in-cheek manner), “It’s been a long time coming. And I really stressed over what this video should be. But I think I came up with something that will really ring true.” It’s no surprise Chyna immediately said “yes” to Benzine.
Benzine just set the standard for awesome video proposals. Any other YouTubers looking to propose to their significant others will have a hard act to follow.
