Guy proposes with engraved Zune, she accepts

I hope this guy doesn’t work at Microsoft’s PR firm, because that would be taking things too far.

According to Gizmodo, Ben Podbielski proposed on Wednesday by presenting his girlfriend a pink Zune loaded with a slideshow set to romantic music. In the last frame, it said, “Sooo …. Turn The Zune Over.”

On the back he’d used the Zune engraving service to etch “Will you marry me?” into the device.

Should we call that a Podbielskicast? At least he didn’t ask by squirting her.
