In theory, you only get to propose to your significant other once in a lifetime.

Some people prefer a more relaxed approach to popping the question, but some prefer to create a proposal that is unforgettable.


One guy spent six months preparing for his happily ever after, setting the bar higher for proposals everywhere.

When Lee Loechler decided to propose to his girlfriend, Sthuthi David, he did everything in the next six months to ensure the proposal would be perfect.

Loechler, an artist in animation, worked with a small team of fellow animators to recreate the most iconic scene from Disney's Sleeping Beauty, which also happens to be David's favorite Disney film.

Easily the most beloved scene of all time from the film is the moment when the prince discovers and kisses the princess, awaking the sleeping Aurora from her curse. During this scene, when the prince appears at the princess's side, Loechler got to work, replacing Aurora with an animated version of David, and replacing the prince with an animated version of himself.

Instead of the prince leaning down to kiss the cursed princess, Loechler the Prince proposes to an awakening Princess David.

In a video that's gone viral, Loechler recorded a split screen of the event, showing the personalized version of the film alongside his and David's reactions to the film.

When Aurora first appears on screen, depicted with David's dark hair and tan skin, David starts making a confused face up at the screen. Her confusion appears to worsen when the new prince appears on screen. Even at the point when the prince proposes, David still appears confused.

But Loechler made the moment even better by creating the illusion that his Prince Charming self threw the boxed ring to him, from screen to audience. At this point, he turns to his future bride to propose, much to the delight of the audience behind them, filled with their friends and family.

From redrawing the animation of the film, to selecting a ring, to renting out a theater space to show the film, and inviting all of their friends and family for their special moment, Loechler truly pulled out all the stops to make this the best moment on their way to the couple's happily ever after.

Loechler even created a "Plan B" film reaction at the very end of the movie, just in case his future bride declined his proposal. When the sad reaction to David's acceptance starts to play, it added a hilarious, and certainly charming, twist to the end of his proposal.

You can watch the proposal, with the adapted film, here:

Reddit users are loving the proposal, and the video has gone viral on Twitter.










Loechler certainly set the bar high for future proposals everywhere, but more importantly, he reminded everyone to make them personal to the couple, to make them fun and to roll with any mistakes that may come up along the way.

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
