Going viral: a marriage proposal
Len Kendall wants to know, “Katie, will you marry me?”
And he’s convinced all of BuzzFeed to help him propose.
Kendall, a 28-year-old digital director from Chicago, just happens to be one of the top 50 community contributors to BuzzFeed. Now, the site—a viral content factory where readers rate stories as “LOL” or “WTF,” among other tags—is repaying him by promoting his marriage proposal on the front page.
An editors’ note prefaces the post, indicating BuzzFeed’s official involvement:
“Len is proposing to his longtime girlfriend Katie right here and now. Help him out by leaving an image in the comments persuading her to say yes and making Len the happiest man in the whole internets! We'll update this post as soon as she responds. OMG!!!”
BuzzFeed’s dashboard has even been customized with the proposal:
BuzzFeed users were divided on the prudence of Kendall’s proposal strategy.
“Len, you are BRILLIANT! ;)” commented Victoria Harres Akers on the post.
We’ll update the story when we hear the result, but we already know it’s going to be a yes. No one could say no to Jeremy Lin.
Update: Something may be about to happen! Kendall just tweeted, "I love you @hollandersauce. Stay calm. I'll see you soon :) #SayYesKatie."
Updated update: SHE SAID YES!
