Over-the-top marriage proposals, which were once a novelty, have now become the norm thanks to individuals looking to rack up as many YouTube views as they can get.
In this latest video, Yasushi "Yassan" Takahashi, an artist from Japan, traveled 4,349 miles in order to spell out the words "Marry Me" using a GPS tracker.
The unique proposal spanned the entire country, but get this — it took quitting his job and leaving his girlfriend behind for six entire months in order to accomplish.

"I wanted to write the world's biggest proposal, and I found GPS drawing was the way to do it," Takahashi explained as his reason for making the 2008 trek.
So let's get this straight: Your method of proposing took you away from your girlfriend — the woman you supposedly want to spend the rest of your life with — for six months all because YOU wanted to break a record? Sounds a bit narcissistic to us!

No matter our thoughts, Takahashi got both things he wanted: he now holds the Guinness Record for biggest GPS drawing and his girlfriend said yes to the proposal — even though he risked losing her by taking this trip.
