Comic-con Proposal is the Sweetest Thing You’ll See This Year

comic con proposal

When Makeup Artist Barry Bishop and Visual FX Artist Billy Brooks were brought on stage for the Con Man panel at SDCC this year, people probably thought it was odd. Usually, the panels are reserved for directors, producers, and the cast – the crew behind the magic don’t normally get the spotlight. Maybe Alan Tudyk was being really nice? Well, it turns out, he had an ulterior motive. You see, now that their wedding would be legal in their home states in the “deep south,” Billy had decided it was time to ask his man to tie the knot, in our absolute favorite thing from Comic-con this year. Seriously, even the Batman v Superman trailer can’t top this. Gentlebeings, prepare your tear ducts:

There are no words… from Billy Brooks on Vimeo.

Congratulations, you guys, both on your happy impending nuptials and on having a proposal that no one will ever be able to top.

The look on Wil Wheaton’s face. My god.
