This may start a trend…
Danny Rose had the idea that the method by which he wanted to propose to his boyfriend Aaron was via music video — and he’s not in the music business. Pretty brave, but he told friends he wanted to plight his troth this way, and they all volunteered. He even found a marching band!
He told Towleroad:
I started writing the song in December and took me a month to complete. Then I prepped the music video for a few weeks and shot it all in one day at the culver studios. I had everything donated from techno crane to cameras and fx. I had a killer director, DP, editor and choreographers all who volunteered their time and amazing talents. I spent about a month in post.
The funny thing. Very funny thing… Is that Aaron was planning to ask me !! He actually beat me to the punch and devised his own proposal adventure for me on Valentines day! I was in the midst of prepping the video! I said yes but told him I was still going to ask him and continue my plan!
I presented the video in the backyard. When he saw the screen he thought I made a slide show of our lives together!
After the video I got down on one knee and asked him to make me the happiest person in the world and spend his life with me! He said of course and it was a great moment. But wanted to watch the video again 30 more times. There are a lot of inside jokes and even some wardrobe choices in there designed to experiences in our history.
The song is now for sale on iTunes and all the proceeds go to marriage equality charities.
