Man's LEGO Movie Marriage Proposal Will Leave You in (Plastic) Pieces
“It’s a bit cheesy but that just made me like it more,” the filmmaker said.
— -- This adorable LEGO proposal will leave you in (little bitty plastic) pieces.
When Ben Anderson, of Worcester, United Kingdom, decided it was time to propose to his then-girlfriend, Kirsten Dally, he contacted filmmaker Morgan Spence to help him turn the momentous occasion into a truly romantic yet playful experience.
The two creative minds came up with the idea of turning all of the couple’s favorite moments from their relationship into a LEGO stop-motion film, which debuted for the unsuspecting bride-to-be on what she thought was just a simple date to the movies.
“He had a big plan to propose to his girlfriend in the Electric Cinema in Birmingham,” Spence, who is just 17 years old and has already been featured on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” for his impressive LEGO work, told ABC News of the couple. “He wanted me to produce a LEGO animation describing how they met in a film style almost like Forrest Gump sitting on a park bench."
“It’s a bit cheesy but that just made me like it more,” he added.
As the LEGO video was playing on the big screen, “she elbowed me in the ribs and asked me what the hell I had done. She was quite overwhelmed,” Anderson recalled of Dally’s reaction.
Dally said “yes” and now the engaged lovebirds are contemplating using the LEGO figures as their wedding cake toppers.
