Man proposes to girlfriend using ‘Super Mario Maker’

/ 05:15 PM May 30, 2016
To boost the relationship ‘to the next level’, a gamer in Arkansas, United States, devised a catchy way to ask his girlfriend’s hand by using Super Mario Maker, a forefront feature in the classic video game Super Mario Bros.

Pro gamer Shane Birkinbine purchased a 2015 version of the video game and designed a level to tickle his girlfriend, Pam Edwards. The latest version allows gamers to craft and rearrange levels for entertainment purposes, according to Daily Mail.

The memorable and romantic video was uploaded on video-sharing site YouTube with the caption, “Hope everyone enjoys just a bit of our special moment. Geeks do it better!”


In the trending video clip that stockpiled 756,000 views, Edwards was seen playing the game until she lurches at the Super Mario modified level.

Birkinbine asks his significant other,  “Babe, what does that say?” as Edwards glances at her name, which is spelled out in the hollow blocks. Then, the ultimate question popped out.


Astonished as ever, Edwards ecstatically replies his endearing question with a sweet ‘yes’. The video ended with the couple confessing their love to one another.

Many YouTube users were swayed with the proposal’s creativity and in return, Birkinbine thanked the people who gave optimistic remarks in a YouTube comment, “Just never thought it would come from our little corner of the world. This video is nothing without her reaction. She is the star. ” Gianna Francesca Catolico
