On Wednesday, May 23, Portland actor Isaac Lamb got together 60 friends to propose to his girlfriend, Amy Frankel, through "live lip-dub" to the song "Marry You." Watch the video below!
The introduction to his video of the event, which later went viral, reads:
"...I told my girlfriend, Amy, to meet me at my parents' house. When she arrived I had stationed my brother to sit her on the back of a Honda CRV with some headphones on. He 'wanted to play her a song'… What she got, instead, was the world's first Live Lip-Dub Proposal."
“It’s crazy. I thought friends and family would like it and I figured that’s where it would end,” Lamb said the day he posted the video, as reported by OregonLive.com.
Lamb has been performing Defending the Caveman for almost five years. Prior to Caveman, Isaac was part of the Character Company with Meh-Tropolis Dance Theatre in Los Angeles, a member of the Kohl Players (with whom he performed the original one-act play One Sunday in Mississippi), and a graduate of Loyola Marymount’s School of Film and Television. More recently, in between performance dates of Caveman, Isaac played the role of Leon Czolgosz in Assassins (A.R.T.), Gaston in Beauty and the Beast (N.W.C.T.) for which he won a Drammy Award, and Jewell Estes in Floyd Collins (Stumptown Stages). He also recently starred in the film North Starr, which debuted at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.
