Zach Braff Flips the Script, Helps Dude Propose to His Girlfriend, Is Suddenly Awesome Again

By Dustin Rowles | Videos | July 10, 2013 | Comments ()


Oh, Braff. It’s stuff like this — and this and this and this — that remind us why we love you, even when you do things like this and this.

He helped a guy propose to his girlfriend, and he did it superbly. After that video, I’d have married that guy.

You win, Braff. You win.

    Screw you, Pajiba, for trying to warm the cockles of my cold dead heart! Joke's on you because my heart has no cockles.

  • Uriah_Creep

    But without cockles, your heart will not go on...

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    I am imagining this being sung by Celine Dion.

  • Uriah_Creep

    That was the intention. Bwahahahahaha!

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    *under my breath*

    I hate you.

  • Uriah_Creep

    I don't blame you a bit.

    *slinks away *

    Braff and the Scrubs cast and crew did this in 2007, too!

    This may just be me being curmudgeonly. I should preface it by saying I have never proposed to anyone, but I always thought these kind of "in your face" proposals are the worst. Ladies, feel free to correct me, but I imagine being put into a spot like this would be terrible. Hopefully the guy is pretty damn sure she is going to say yes before doing a presentation like this, but if she had any doubts, do you think she could seriously say no in this situation? It's like the proposals at a stadium in front of 50,000 other people. I know there have been instances where the woman has said no, but I imagine there is a huge amount of pressure on her in that moment.

    I like to think that should I ever end up in a position where I want to propose marriage to a woman, I would do it somewhere quiet, with just the two of us. If there are any doubts, I wouldn't want her saying yes just because I bullied her into it with a lavish production, and manged to get Zach Braff to show up. Anyway, that's just me.

    That said, I love Zach and almost everything he does.

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    You have to know each other. If you know that your girlfriend is the kind of person who goes for this type of thing then you probably already know she is going to say yes.

    I feel really sorry for people involved with elaborate public proposals that go wrong.

  • Morgan_LaFai

    Though I have neither proposed or been proposed to I would like to think that, given the pressure of the situation, a person would say yes and then later on down the road, in a not so crowded setting, back out. Thus the proposer doesn't get humiliated in public and the proposee doesn't have to marry someone if they don't wish to.

  • Nyltiak

    Well, at least in this case, the actual proposing was done in private, as opposed to the obnoxious jumbotron at the sports game type, but I do agree. It would make me feel like someone was trying to guilt me into saying yes. Now, I know plenty of women who would love something like this, but I know many more who would prefer something a little more low-key. Also, I thought all the "say yes!" people were pretty obnoxious. I guess I don't get to be the one to tell ANY of my family/friends that I got engaged, since they knew before I did.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    It's a fine line, and all depends on the couple. If she's been hinting at/expecting a proposal, then going over the top is a way to counteract/apologize for any impatience she might have felt, or to make it clear that you, as proposer, haven't felt railroaded into it. Plus, this is one of the few times when the big gesture is actually appropriate (unlike most movie-stalkery big gestures).

    This one did come across a little weird with all the "say yes" stuff - does she really need that much encouragement?

  • Hold on, I've got several things in my eye...

  • Guest

    Well, that was a little bit pushy! I guess she would never have the balls to say "No".

  • HJ

    Well my boyfriend certainly looks a lot less cool this morning!

  • fasha

    I didn't need these feels so early in the morning!

  • Wōđanaz Óðinn

    As well intentioned as it is, it's still Braff asking for something.
    Isn't he like, a multi-millionaire? Couldn't he just have bought her with his own money and got her to marry the guy like that?
    There are loads of proposals on Youtube that don't have the benefit of having a multi-millionaire in them. He's ruining the whole idea of marriage proposals on Youtube.

    At least it fills this weeks quota of "Braff would now like ..."

    Video's not

  • Modernlove

    I recently listened to the Nerdist podcast he did and between that, this, and my obsessive rewatching of Scrubs on NetFlix, I'm crushing. I'm not ashamed.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    It's a pretty good song, too. Very sweet.
