Marc Jacobs decided that he’s ready to make an honest man out of his current boyfriend, Charly Defrancesco, so he popped the question. Marc Jacobs has always seemed fun (you’ve got to have a sense of humor if you permanently put Spongebob skipping across your bicep), but who knew that he also has the aesthetic of a theater club teenager attempting to pull off their school’s most-gossiped about promposal?
On Wednesday night, Marc dropped down on one knee in a NYC Chipotle (he must be saving Taco Bell for the wedding) as a group of excited strangers danced to “Kiss” by Prince. It also happened to be Charly’s birthday. A public proposal on a birthday with a flashmob in a Chipotle? That’s cornier than the corn I always find in my carnitas burrito despite specifically asking for there to be none. Marc put the whole thing on Instagram:
Tag yourself. I’m the lady with the bun and the red purse in the back trying desperately not to draw attention to themselves while probably thinking, “Goddamnit Brad, I told you I wanted to order in.”
But of all the effort that was put into that proposal, nobody thought to hide the ring in the food? What’s the point of getting engaged at Chipotle if you’re not going to reach into your meal and pull out a ring with sour cream and rice while one of your dancers runs to the bathroom.
