Gay Marriage Proposal Of The Century: Brett Calls In Ian McKellen For Back-Up - VIDEO


"The question of 'are we alone alone in the Universe' might be answered for one man," reads the description of Brett Lotriet Best's wonderfully sweet marriage proposal. And we can only hope his hubby, apparently a massive fan of "Star Trek," responded well, because Brett pulled out all the stops.

"We all know how you feel about 'Star Trek's' Captain Picard," says one of Brett's signs,"so I searched the galaxy for Patrick Stewart...and finally asked his best friend for help!" Cut to an adorable Ian McKellen delivering the bad news that Stewart is already married to a woman. "The good news," he adds, "is that Brett isn't married. So, think it over, do the right thing."

Aww! It is just about the happiest, most star-studded video you could watch all day. One does wonder, though, how Brett contacted the esteemed Sir Ian...

Check out the proposal, AFTER THE JUMP...

And good luck, Brett! We don't think you'll need it.

  3. I don't get it. Who is Brett and who has he asked to marry him?

  6. Nice, but I don't understand videos with cards; what's wrong with speaking? Kudos to Ian McKellin, though now everyone will want him to do a video.

    Oh, and . . . wasn't that the original Star Trek opening with William Shatner. I assume that Next Generation had its own?

  7. That man never has to buy an anniversary gift for life.

  8. @Alan: yes, it also occurred to me that he was using the wrong show's theme song, and I hoped it wouldn't mean being turned down :)

    But perhaps he used the original show's theme because it contains the original narration by William Shatner, using the phrase "to boldly go where no man has gone before", as opposed to ST:TNG, where the voiceover by Patrick Stewart says "to boldly go where no one has gone before". The second, gender neutral version, is arguably not the one to use when asking a man to marry you.

  9. Who's Brett? Who's Khalid? Should I know who they are? Why post this assuming everyone knows who they are?

  12. Hey Brett, you got a brother?

  13. Who's JPR? Should I know who he is? Why post this assuming everyone knows who he is?

  14. I know who Ian is, he's truly famous. Otherwise I have no idea who this is about, I don't know who Brett is, or Khalid and I certainly don't know who JPR is. And damnit, I'm a hipster too. Trying to keep up.

  15. This just proves that's getting married is a"talent" these days....Yawn..
