Gay Canadian Actor Organizes 'Love Today' Flashmob To Propose To His Boyfriend (VIDEO)

In what will be sure to go down as one of the most elaborate marriage proposals ever, a gay Canadian actor popped the question to his boyfriend in a very theatrical way.

Patrick Stiles, who recently starred in Royal City Musical Productions' staging of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," organized a grand flashmob with his castmates to the tune of Mika's "Love Today." As his partner Mike Kennedy beamed, Stiles segued into a heartfelt version of Elton John's "Your Song" before dropping to one knee.

Stiles, who appropriately described the event as "life-changing," told the Guelph Mercury, "With gay relationships, I actually didn't know what the protocol was for who proposes. How do you know whose job it is?"

Footage of the proposal has already been featured by Towleroad and The Advocate, among other media outlets.

Earlier this year, a gay Salt Lake City man staged a colorful flashmob to propose to his boyfriend at a local Home Depot.
