The Boston-based filmmaker Lee Loechler decided to put his girlfriend and himself into the animated version of the movie and took help from an Australian illustrator for the same. Lee rented a screening room at Coolidge Corner Theatre on December 30 to propose to Dr Sthuthi David, his girlfriend.
In the scene where Prince Philip wakes up Princess Aurora with a kiss, Lee edited the video to impose himself and Sthuthi where the filmmaker looked like Prince Philip Sthuthi like Princess Aurora. The video has garnered more than 1.4 million views since it was uploaded on YouTube on Thursday. The video has more than 20,000 views on Instagram where Lee shared the live feed of the proposal.
"It’s not every day you get to propose to your High School sweetheart. For the past six months I’ve been working with @kaylacoombs to animate @stutzd4 and myself into her favorite movie, Sleeping Beauty," wrote Lee in the Instagram post.
