FORT MYERS, Fla. - A family feud that's part of American folklore is getting a historical look, and making history too, a virtual toast becomes a touching tribute to a fallen soldier, and one lip-synched wedding proposal raises the bar for every guy to top today's Hot on the Web.
An oregon man has raised the bar when it comes to proposals and viral videos. Isaac Lamb enlisted the help of friends, family, and neighbor in his proposal to Amy Frankel. First, Isaac's brother gets Amy to put on headphones as she sits in the back of a car. As she listens to Bruno Mars croon his tune "Marry Me," the lip-synch serenade begins. As the car moves slowly down the street, the choreographed group grows and grows to about 60 in all. Not to spoil the ending, but she does say yes. See the full video here.
Coming off Memorial Day, a fallen soldier has now been toasted more than a million times. A waitress in Texas said a man came in the restaurant back in March and asked to buy a beer and leave a note. The note was in memory of a Naval officer, Lt. J.g. Francis Toner who was killed in Afghanistan. The waitress, Hannah Hobbs was so moved she took a picture and posted it on Facebook. She asked, "Can i get some likes?" You can see the pic and like it yourself here.
