Jack Hyer knew he wanted to marry his girlfriend after their first date.

All that stood in the way was 26 countries, four years and one Proclaimers song.

Hyer started filming his travels four years ago as a way to keep in touch with his girlfriend, eventually turning them into a video proposal where he lip-syncs The Proclaimers' 1988 hit "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" through China, Israel and many other countries.

Hyer did eventually pop the question in person – the scene is at the end of the video. (Spoiler alert: His girlfriend, Becca, said yes.)



And the happy couple already have a honeymoon destination: Belize. The best part? They're traveling there for free because the Belize Tourism Board liked the video.
