This might be the most well-planned marriage proposal in history.

On Sept. 30, 2010, Jack Hyer and Rebecca Strellnauer, both students at the University of Montana, went on their first date. The date went so well that afterward, Hyer wrote in his travel journal, “I’m going to marry this girl, eventually.”

Well it turns out he ended up being right.

Since writing those words, Hyer traveled to 26 counties and  put together a video of himself lip-syncing The Proclaimers’ “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” from all over the world.

After the couple graduated from UM last Saturday, Hyer tricked Strellnauer into thinking they were going to watch his “graduation slideshow,” at which time he showed her the epic video.

She said yes.
