Bender from Futurama doesn’t necessary inspire romance (the robot does want to “kill all humans” after all), but many women wouldn’t mind romancing the jaded copper-plated being. While, you may find it hard to believe, however, Youtube user ‘doctorpapa’ begs to differ.
The self-proclaimed geek did the unthinkable by proposing to his girlfriend in Binary, while wearing a Bender mask. The bride-to-be sent the video over to our friends on Geekoligie and looks like these two will are all set to live happily ever after in their geeky paradise. To further up the geek ante, a flying remote-controlled shark balloon in the background was placed strategically (it is all about the details after all).
Says the euphoric bride:
“My boyfriend told me I had to close my laptop for a couple minutes, then when I logged back on this was posted to my Facebook wall. He sat across the room as I transcribed and then decoded it. After about a half hour I found out it says, “Rachel, you are awesome. Will you marry me?” I said yes, of course :B.”
Aww you guys, may your geeky love bubble never burst and have a wonderful Futurama, mmm we mean future together. Also, big congratulations or as we say in binary; ” “01000011 01101111 01101110 01100111 01110010 01100001 01110100 01110011 00100001.”
For those who have given up on romance, should check out the video of the proposal and swoon (or not, since the video does have him reciting 1’s and 0’s for three minutes).
