Prepare to be blown away by the most elaborate marriage proposal you’re about to witness. It’s like the scene in Glee when Will Schuester asked Emma Pillsbury to marry him but even better because this is for real!

Music teacher Tom Betgeorge (right) from Conservatory of Vocal and Instrumental Arts in Oakland knew the best way to propose to his girlfriend Teri (left) who is an avid fan of musical theater -by staging a singing and dancing flash mob!

But it wasn’t just a regular flash mob. It began with a fake volleyball tournament that Tom planned and he asked Teri to watch it.

In the middle of the volleyball game, “Marry You by Bruno Mars” started playing while the players pretended to be confused…

As he says: “I know we have talked about getting married for some time, and I have only kept you waiting because I wanted to do something special for you to show you how much I love you, with more than just words. You’re my best friend Terri and I can’t imagine being with anyone except you”

Obviously, Teri said, “Yes!” Who would turn down a proposal as sweet as this?
