Congrats! I can't say I'm not jealous of the crap sent, though!

I LOL'd at the "not from you" comment about the ring. Congrats to both, and woot staff = awesome.

Wow, more details please!

congratulations! that was beautiful!

@joshaw: I don't think that's the same couple/story. No BOC mentioned and much different circumstances.

vote-for12vote-against

My favorite part was the "alarm-clock-calculator, with calendar."

vote-for7vote-against

@gt0163c: Yeah, not the same story at all. :-(

@publicart: I honestly don't know why the remote + beer opener didn't really take off.

vote-for12vote-against

Poor @Gideon is losing all these up votes ):

vote-for26vote-against

@joshaw: no, and I'm really sorry if I convoluted the matter since the other post is very touching in a much different way.

The company got the email + video this morning and I was getting asked to post it around so I wanted to check with the couple and post it before maybe someone did without their consent.

Let it be known that I did ask specifically about upvotes! He was still willing to let me receive them for him since he is not able to post at this time. So, please, if you see him around later- no matter what he's saying, go ahead and upvote on principle.

Congrats @gideonfrost!! Best wishes to the both of you! See, I was right when I said you rock!

CONGRATS @GIDEONFROST!! :D I Just finished watching the video, and 5:22 was the best part!

Okay, seriously and honestly. This is is by far the best bag of crap unboxing on YouTube that I've watched. This is full of epic wins. It's so cute, it's so sweet. I'm just in awe.

Congratulations to you both! Best wishes. Hope to hear from you guys soon!

I lol at that alarm clock/calculator/whatever that looks a lot like a 2000s cellphone from the Matrix.

And the remote with an opener... im speechless. xD

And thats A LOT of monkeys!

Awesome job to the wootstaff on helping out! How awesome are they?! Seriously! Where else can you find something like that?

vote-for17vote-against

Awwwwww! Congratulations! Can't wait to hear more details.

(If anyone ever proposed to me via a BoC, that would be an automatic "yes"!)

vote-for12vote-against

That's awesome! Congratulations!

vote-for19vote-against

Congratulations @gideonfrost You put my lame proposal to shame! Best of luck to you and your girl.
This is by-far the best BOC unboxing video ever. BY-FAR. Someday I might score a coveted BOC but I'm guessing it won't be nearly as memorable as this one was for you.

@agingdragqueen Thanks for including all of us in on the shenanigans. Also thanks for the woot! calendar. I received it in the mail last week. It now proudly occupies space on the wall in my house. Occasionally I catch my wife walking past and shaking her head side-to-side. :P

vote-for9vote-against

Wow, so sweet! :) Congrats to you @gideonfrost.

vote-for13vote-against

Wow, major congrats. @gideonfrost: Now you guys have the perfect engagement story: "Well, we got this bag of crap and there was a birthday cake and a wedding ring inside." Ah to see their faces before you explain it would be priceless.

From the title I thought another wooter got a BOC in the mail with an engagement ring in it along with a proposal. That would have been awesome to see as well.

Woot Staff: I expect the rest of us will be able to do this when the time comes? :)

vote-for9vote-against

@gideonfrost Congratulations on the creative proposal, and of course on the acceptance of said proposal!

congrats, what a great way to propose I think i had a thread about doing something like this earlier this year (see great minds think alike) . Again congratulations guys. Also great job woot staff for helping out

I'm all misty eyed now. Congrats you two!

vote-for21vote-against

What a great story! Thanks so very much for sharing this with everyone. I'm poking that old sentimentalist, @lavikinga, because it's just too good not to share.

Applause to @colonelcrap, @thefenst, @prettywootprincess, @jumbowoot, and to you, too, @agingdragqueen.

A toast to the bride and groom (@gideonfrost) as well!

{I'll have a glass of that amazing Jana Cathedral in their honor.}

I love happy news. :-D

vote-for18vote-against

Congratulations @gideonfrost! I'm going to show this to my wife. She sometimes hates that I'm plugged into the Woot forums so much, but I think she'll warm over once she sees this and realizes what an amazing community and awesome company Woot is.

@agingdragqueen, thanks for posting this!

vote-for14vote-against

That's really sweet. :) Grats to the newly engaged!

vote-for14vote-against

This is killing me! I'm up in the PA woods with a very crappy Hughes SAT internet connection. I'm lucky that I got @shrdlu's ping. I'll have to wait until Wednesday to watch this!
My best wishes I send your way, @gideonfrost. You do realize all of us will be expecting a wedding invitation. We'll send you BOCs!

@eepeep: I'm gonna do the same.

Best reality video I've seen in a while. I love the "one-eye look at the camera" at 5:34. Yeah dude, that was a stud move.

vote-for8vote-against

What a sweet and wonderful video clip. Wishing the happy couple only the very best in the future. Sooo sweet.

vote-for9vote-against

@gideonfrost Congrats man!! That's AWESOME I have a new level of respect for the woot employees for helping set this up, what a cool way to propose and what's even cooler is she said yes lol

vote-for16vote-against

Way cool gideon, That BOC was way better than what I ever thought it was going to be. Woot has an awesome community with an amazing staff running it. Also, @gideonfrost Tell your girl I said Hi! Also, while she didn't quite address it directly, I think her saying yes means I can't be gideon's boyfriend anymore. That's too bad but I'm very happy for you gideon, let me know if you need an usher or something at the wedding :P

vote-for7vote-against

Congratulations to the both of you! Nothing says awesome quite like the woot staff pulling something like that together. Now I know who to hit up for I have a question to ask a lady someday...

vote-for9vote-against

@GideonFrost - congratulations!
Have to echo all of the above - the awesomeness of this community is inspiring.
Her reaction made me all misty-eyed. Much continued happiness to you both.

Congrats man!

Congrats to @gideonfrost and his fiancee, and thanks for the wedding invite. Just three questions....

1) Where will it be?
2) When will it be?
3) Is it an open bar or a cash bar?

Congratulations!

What a neat way to purpose :)

Congratulations to you both! Thank you for sharing the moment and your joy with the community -it is surprising how emotionally invested we all get, even though most of us have never spoken or met!

Very creative @gideonfrost! You obviously went to a lot of trouble for this girl, so she's got to be worth it!

Thanks wootstaff for helping set this one up. Very cool.

How delightful! No bag of crap this one. Congratulations & best wishes to both of you. Kudos to the woot staff, too!

vote-for47vote-against

Thanks everyone so much for your help. We left the morning after making this video for a small vacation, so I wasn't able to post the video myself. Thanks to @agingdragqueen for posting it, and of course @jumbowoot @colonelcrap @prettywootprinces @thefenst for making this possible. I seriously can't thank you all enough. Also thanks everyone in the community for the kind words.

The best part of this whole thing is listening to my fiance (I accidentally typed girlfriend there first) fxplain what a bag of crap is to her family several hundred times.

Also for some background I got the idea when I won a bag of crap from the last woot off. I talked to the unofficial woot liaison @cowboydann (okay I came up with that title) about it who talked to Jumbo who I then began to email back and forth with.

I told her about 2-3 weeks ago that Woot was picking random people to send bags of crap to so she wouldn't be so suspicious when she got one out of the blue.
