Top 10 Geekiest Marriage Proposals

1. Super Mario

This sweet geek used FuSoYa’s Lunar Magic Super Mario hack to pose a proposal to his girlfriend spelling out “Lisa… will you marry me?” in gold coins. That’s one way to get the princess!

 

2. iPhone App

LinkedIn employee Bryan Haggerty developed an entire treasure hunt iPhone app for his elaborate proposal that sent girlfriend Jeannie  around San Francisco with her route forming a <3 symbol on a map. Once Jeannie had solved all the video clues she found Haggerty atop a hill waiting to pop the question.

3. Little Big Planet

One of many video game proposals, this was made slightly easier (as in no hacking necessary) with LittleBigPlanet’s level creation functionality — but that does not make this effort any less romantic.

 

4. iPod

This lucky girl gets the geek, a sparkly diamond ring, and an iPod with this proposal that took advantage of Apple’s engraving option in a pretty major way.

5. Chrono Trigger

If you read the description on this video, you’ll see that some serious work has gone into this super-romantic hack that adds notable locations, quotes and characters (including the cat!) from the couple’s real life. Aw!

6. Google Street View

Google employee Michael Weiss-Malik wasn’t satisfied with his proposal 1.0 (“simple heart-felt words exchanged during a quiet night at home”), so the 2.0 version took advantage of Google’s Street View pass near the Google offices. Sadly, it has now been replaced with updated imagery, but the memory lives on.

7. Megatouch

The company behind the Megatouch bar games system went the extra mile to help this Washington gent propose to his special lady via her fave Megatouch game. They even caught the moment on (shaky-)cam.

8. Twitter

It’s by no means the only Twitter proposal, but this might be the first via the micro-blogging site. The reply was a “yes,” although with a big “um” and an “I guess” thrown in. Maybe she was hoping for an iPod.

9. iPhone Ad

Here, the familiar iPhone ad format was given a more romantic marketing message in the hope of a special push of the “answer” button. Check out the Cover Flow demo near the start — we think that might have given Doris a clue as to what was to come.

10. LOLcats

Posted on Valentine’s Day, here is the very first I Can Has Cheezburger proposal. Fans of the funny site will be happy to note Loretta’s answer was delivered via the medium of LOLcat too.
