A video of a Seattle, Washington woman
proposing marriage to her girlfriend from atop a bus has attracted
more than 1 million views on YouTube since its debut in August.
“Just the night before, we were
talking about romance and I pretty much told her she wasn't
romantic,” Alissa Haslam wrote in the video's description. “I am
eating crow … and will be for a long time.”
In the nearly 6-minute video, Haslam
rushes to an office window to find out what's causing all the
commotion in the street, where more than 60 people and a band
(Tubaluba) are cheering around a parked bus.
Standing on top of the bus is Jeanne
Sickel Sterbentz, the alleged unromantic girlfriend.
As the Lumineers' Hey Hey plays,
Sterbentz hold ups a series of signs – one says, “Yes this is
happening” – ending with, “Will you marry me?”
Haslam rushes downstairs to meet
Sterbentz, who gets down on one knee and produces a ring. Haslam
says “yes” and the happy couple board the bus. (The video is
