With Timothy Tiah's wittiness, he made use of 9gag's popular memes to propose to long-time girlfriend, Audrey.
Yesterday, this video was at 78,000 views. Today it's heading towards 700,000. Something is wrong with YouTube though, they're not updating the views real-time so don't be surprised if the views balloon up to 2,000,000 views tomorrow!
His documented marriage proposal video has the world slicing onions crying their hearts out.
Ever Christina Perri (Jar of Hearts singer) watched the video! (it's on her twitter)
In all seriousness, it touched my heart. Heck never knew I had one wtf.. Watch the video.
Marriage difficulty level: Asian
Congratulations to Fatty and Shorty!
Summore it's made in Malaysia.. the country that barely has any achievements. Fuiyoh
You can congratulate Audrey at her blogpost:

And you can congratulate Timothy over here at:
Now, it's time for me to be a lil kepochi to identify the publicity this video generated for the following parties.
no.1 Timothy Tiah & Audrey Ooi Feng Ling
If you actually type 'Timothy' on www.google.com, his blog is number one on the search results. The last time my blog was number one on Google's search result was when I posted up my brazilian wax post and generated 6,000 views over the course of 2 days before it fell from no.1
It's been 3 days and Tim's blog still maintains the top result so.. he must be getting about 10,000 to 30,000 hits on his blog.
As for Audrey her blog is top 5 in top google results. Can lah... how to compete with Audrey Magazine? Since she's a girl (as you know people are more curious about girls than guys), her blog must be getting about 20,000 to 50,000 hits to see her response to the whole thing.
Depending on their next blog posts, if it's spiffy enough they can capture 1000s of blog followers.
As you know Timothy is made in Malaysia. And he also happens to be the big boss of Nuffnang.
Check it out here on wiki! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuffnang
Nuffnang is the main blooger advertising community in Asia boasting about 150,000 blogs under them.
So this morning Nuffnang just posted up the video on it's fanpage. If it gets a buttload of shares their fan count might hit 34,000 to 36,000. Unlikely to balloon up to 50,000 since Nuffnang mainly targets bloggers.
no.3 Crazy Monkey Studios
If you went to Timothy's blog (timothytiah.com) he mentioned the name of the studio that produced the video.
In Malaysia people are known to copy styles from each other so if you hear a Malaysian girl shrieking 'i wan a video like tim and audrey!! dun care!!!!!' loudly at a kopitiam, don't be surprised. Right now http://www.crazymonkeystudio.com is also number one on google search results. No surprise if they gets a million phonecalls to produce wedding videos.
So goes the saying.. 'Fellas, we're in business!'
no.4 Neroteca, Kuala Lumpur
The restaurant mentioned in the video is, again, number one on google search results. Thanks to the meme proposal don't be surprised if everyone starts going to the restaurant to propose. If Neroteca is smart enough, they'll provide 'Surprise proposal discount' package bookings! If that happens, walauweh...
9GAG may have generated a shitload of publicity for the video
But nerds like you and me know that not everyone knows about 'memes' or the existence of 9GAG.
The views on YouTube for the video will probably hit 3,000,000 in a week and people will be wondering 'wtf's a meme', and voila. More people will start registering at 9gag.com (which was originally from 4chan)
If you're still feeling all sad sappy and shit from watching the meme proposal video, this next video that's making waves around facebook will cheer you up.
Sam Insanity, over and out.
