Super Mario Proposal: Geek Proposes To Girlfriend Inside Video Game (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Girlfriends and gaming don't usually go together, but this lovestruck nerd was an exception to the rule and managed to inject some romance into a Super Mario video game.

A gaming geek proposed to his girlfriend inside a Super Mario World level by spelling out the words "Lisa Will You Marry Me?" using gold coins.

According to the Telegraph, the romantic techie used an editing program called Lunar Magic to make the proposal inside the vintage game, then after she'd seen it, got down on one knee to offer a real ring.

Watch his proposal -- and his fiance's reaction (she said yes) -- below.

We have to wonder: was she as impressed by his proposal as he was? What will they tell their grandkids?
