If you thought Legos were only child’s play, think again.
Watch this clever Lego stop-motion marriage proposal video to see one of the most adorable proposals ever.
Walter Thompson came up with the clever idea to propose to girlfriend Nealy Dozier using the kids toy to tell the story of their relationship in a stop-motion film.
Thompson explains, “I didn’t want to do something lame like drop on one knee and pop the question.”
The video was a labor of love, as Thompson spent four days and hundreds of dollars to create the masterpiece.
Thompson explains how he created the video: “When it came time to start looking for a ring, I started building on the idea that telling a story with a stop-motion LEGO world would be kind of cool.” He admitted that it “became a lot more work than I originally anticipated.”
He worked tirelessly to recreate details like the clothes they wore during their first meeting, a table in their kitchen, and scenes from their history of dating.
Keeping the surprise a secret was no easy task since the couple live together. He explains that he “had to do the whole thing in my room with the door shut and just assume she knew what was going on. I was very shady about it. It’s an engagement based on lies,” he joked.
He played his girlfriend the video, then “went on one knee and had the box, with two LEGO figures, the bride and groom, he had ring in hand.” he explained.
She said yes, of course!
