Finally had time to sit down and blog today so yay I give myself a pat on the back wtf.

It’s been a crazy few days zomg.  Never in our lives did we think people would react to the proposal like they did.

Fatty outlines everything much clearer in his blog here but besides I’m too lazy to blog about everything that happened in chronological order.

Just posting some screenshots stolen from Fatty here for future bragging purposes.

On the day we posted, we saw the views climbing but didn’t think too much of it.   We assumed it was our blog readers passing it around.

Then the next morning it was all over Facebook.

Then holy mama Ryan Seacrest! Ok probably his writers but this was the first “celeb” mention and we were dumbfounded.

Screen shot 2011-12-24 at 9.15.36 PM9gag 3rd time9gag meme

Then 9gag three times WTFFFFFF.

Someone even created a rage comic about us lol (but not funny wan)

Screen shot 2011-12-22 at 9.47.25 AM

People started telling us that comments on the official YouTube video for Christina Perri’s A Thousand Years (the song used in our video) were all about #memeproposal!

THEN WAIT FOR IT. *prepares pillow to faint

Screen shot 2011-12-23 at 5.04.48 PM

THEN CHRISTINA PERRI HERSELF TWEETED US.

Dude.  Our 6 degrees of separation circle just expanded exponentially.

Actually already expanded with Ryan Seacrest.  I can say I was tweeted by Ryan Seacrest who knows Simon Cowell who probably knows everyone in Hollywood. So now we are just 3 degrees away from everyone in Hollywood!!!! *delusional

Then Guy Kawasaki.

chris brogan

And Chris Brogan.

So they both open up my 6 degrees to say Silicone Valley, Socialmedialand, and Geekdom.

Gizmodo.

Mashable *stuffs pillow into mouth

huffington post

Huffington Post.

The Star (Malaysian newspaper)!  I hate to say this but The Star got trolled by a fake Katy Perry account tweeting about wanting a meme proposal too FTL.

Actually I got trolled too and was so excited about it that I tweeted about Katy Perry too and lied to everyone on my Twitter and Facebook sorry guys hahahaha.

reddit

Then Reddit.  All time favorite site!

How I felt about it?

At first I was overwhelmed.  When Fatty showed me the rising views I was bemused… and a bit wary to be honest.  Fatty is way stronger than me when it comes to online trolls and I was expecting an influx of mean statements then I would be sad and not want to watch the video again wtf.

Fatty was neutral about it but I did not want to post it up at first.  But Crazy Monkey Studios knew they did an amazing job and they wanted to put it up so our friends and family and readers could see.  So we finally agreed and oh mama this happened.

I think the singular best part for us that is not that so many people have watched the video.  But that 99% of the comments were so so positive and supportive T________T

I’ve been having an awesome time reading comments coming in from all over the world!!  People left comments on my blog signing off which country they were from and there are so many!!! From Brazil, Argentina, China, Poland, Canada, India and I forgot where else.  There were even comments written in Spanish or Portuguese I can’t tell need to use Google Translate later wtf.

And every time there was a 1% hater comment, (e.g. “i hope they both die” and “i hope their kids turn out retarded”) there’d be a gazilion comments in reply defending the video.

 

Wtf what have my unborn kids ever done to you!?!?!

To be honest, we’ve been asking ourselves what’s so good about our video WTF.  I mean we like watching it and all but of course — it’s our own *narcissistic. Seriously don’t lie if you have a video of yourself sure you keep rewatching it wan WTF.

There are a lot of more creative, more elaborate proposal videos out there and they were no less touching or sweet.  Ours was just inspired by Love Actually and some geek hobby wtf.  Maybe it was the fact that Fatty used memes, I dunno.

But it was quite fun while it lasted!  Now everyone will go back to their lives…until the next Internet thing comes up.

Mostly, thank you all for making our proposal and our first step toward the new phase in our lives so special.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!

– from Fatty & Shorty

    yeah i kind of figured it was getting really a lot of attention cos some of my friends on fb who don’t really go on blogs much also started sharing it.

    my cousin also shared it and called tim a 9gag troll -_- but thats cos he didn’t know that you’re the one who loves memes. XD

  • http://hhuiyi.blogspot.com Hui Yi

    Again, congratulation! Your video I actually watched it repeatedly for few times. It’s simply awesome. Now you become super famous~

  • http://www.jayelleenelial.com Jayelle

    why it’s awesome:

    I guess the music really helped, first of all. Really sets the mood.

    Damn Tim just doesn’t say anything, just does it all with the actions and he is grinning the entire time which is so so so sweet.

    And Crazy Monkey Studio slowmo-ed the correct bits to really tug our heart strings.

    And of course, just how natural it all was. :”””’)))))

    Cry because so touched.

    Cry because don’t know whether I’ll get anything like that.

    Cry because think too much. ahahahha wtf. congrats congrats congrats!! this only happens once in a lifetime, the proposal and the whole viral thing. 🙂

    Your story is really beautiful and everyone here loved it.

    I dunno if you 2 know this, but your video made a great success in Brazil. I’m posting links of 2 huge brazilian blogs (não intendo and não salvo), and 1 link of your video on youtube (with BR portuguese caption). Almost a half milion views from Brazil and everyone loved it.

    Congratulations again.
