The Lasso: Roping in the best of the web

Well-traveled college student spends four years on proposal video

If love really is the universal language understood around the world, then no proposal will ever come close to the one 21-year-old Jack Hyer pulled off earlier this week.

Hyer, a recent graduate from the University of Montana, wrote in a travel journal back in Sept. 2010 that he would marry then-girlfriend Becca Strellnauer someday.

In the interim, he spent the last four years working on a proposal video played to the tune of 'I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)' by the Proclaimers.

The twist?

He filmed the video as he traveled the globe -- 26 countries and 100,000 miles to be exact.

From Israel to China to France to Tanzania to Turkey and even Thailand, the well-traveled lip-syncer pulled out all the stops.

And for those wondering, Strellnauer said yes.
