US filmmaker Lee Loechler is the man of many a Disney-lover’s dreams. He had a few tricks up his sleeve when he took his unsuspecting girlfriend, Sthuthi David, on a date to watch her favourite movie, Sleeping Beauty.
A partner in crime filmed the two watching the movie, when suddenly the well-known scene of the prince about to kiss the princess changes into something quite unusual. First, the characters’ faces change to resemble Lee and Sthuthi, and then things take a different turn. Sthuthi looks confused, then the on-screen prince takes a ring box out of his pocket and throws it out of the screen for Lee to catch!
“I love you with my whole heart, including all of its ventricles, atriums, valves… She’s a cardiologist,” he tells the crowd. “Sthuthi David, M.D., will you live happily ever after with me?” he asks.
The rest, as they say, is history.
