Michael Farah Proposes Via Flash Mob: 'I Wanted Something That Was Memorable' (VIDEO)

Any proposal is a special moment, and you could say the same about a flash mob. Michael Farah combined the two, and told HuffPost Live host Abby Huntsman about his reasons. Farah's dance-troupe proposal was motivated by his desire "to do something different" and capture the moment, as the video shows.

"I wanted something that at least we would have a video of and I wanted something that was memorable," he said.

Farah didn't do it for the online attention — the video circulating online was shot by a bystander.

"I didn't want it to go viral or anything like that," he said.
