1Apple Store Time-Lapse Webcam Proposal
In 2006, Apple opened their 24/7 retail store on 5th Avenue in New York City. Thousands of people lined up the be the first customers ever to step foot inside the iconic underground store with a glass cube entrance. To capture the excitement, Apple set up a time-lapse webcam outside the entrance so people around the world could virtually participate in store opening at 6 pm ET. After midnight the crowds started to thin out. By 3 am only stragglers were left. Then at 5 am, a man appears with a series of signs.
He held each sign for at least 5 minutes so they would be visible in the time-lapse video. The signs said: “Uschi Lang”, “I love you”, “Will you marry me?” Bloggers immediately started writing about the creative but nerdy wedding proposal. They were eventually able to track down the sign holder (his name is James) and find out Uschi’s answer. She said yes. Hijacking Apple’s webcam at their retail grand opening is definitely one of the nerdiest marriage proposal ideas in history.
