Marriage proposals are best when they come as a complete surprise to the person on the receiving end of the proposal. It’s so much fun to watch the expression on their face change from one of complete obliviousness, to utter joy.

Not all proposals come as a surprise, though. In this video, a woman named Eleanor definitely knew something was up when her boyfriend Jeff handed her a flip book called Imagine Me & You, with the song “Happy Together” playing in the background. She probably also got the hint when he recorded her reaction while she opened it.

“I’m so nervous,” Eleanor says in the video. Eleanor, you’re probably jittery because you know your proposal video is gonna go up on YouTube for everyone to see, but that’s OK. For those of us watching at home, this flip book proposal will still make you go awwwwww.
