GPS Marriage Proposal

THE WORLD'S GREATEST MARRIAGE PROPOSAL Ordinary people doing extraordinary things while walking inspires online film series . . . There aren't many marriage proposals that can be seen from space, but for this traveller, an epic journey through Japan was also a unique marriage proposal. This is the premise of a bizarre love story entitled "Yassan's Proposal," which documents the world's biggest marriage proposal by the record-breaking Tokyo artist, Yassan - who quit his job and hit the road to spend half a year to walk across Japan and inscribe "Marry Me?" using the country as his canvas for the GPS artwork. For six long months his girlfriend barely hears a thing of him. 'She could have easily lost her love,' Yassan explains. 'But when I finally showed up with the GPS proposal written all over Japan, she immediately and wholeheartedly said 'YES.' GPS technology tracked his every step as he journeyed from Hokkaido island to Hyodo Cliff on Kyushu island where the trek ended. Yassan's legwork is officially the world's largest marriage proposal, and also holds the Guinness Record for the world's biggest GPS drawing, covering 7,164 kilometres. The heart-warming expedition has been chosen to appear as the second film a new documentary about how walking can lead to extraordinary things. It is an online documentary project conceived and produced by Amsterdam-based creative agency this that + the other for the brand Hi-Tec, which aims to show how inspiring walking can be. The first film, "Happy," features Jon Beattie, the Steadicam operator on Pharrell Williams' "24 Hours of Happy" video.. Ed van Wezel, chief executive of Hi-Tec, explains: "In an era where technology drives an ever-increasing pace of life, there is a need to slow down. The simple act of walking can lead to extraordinary things and Hi-Tec likes to inspires people to get out there and walk."
