Grandparents and technology don’t always mix and when the two worlds collide you can be sure it will often be hilarious. An adorable marriage proposal video has gone viral this week, but not because of the happy couple, but rather the grandpa behind the camera.

Grandfather John Hart was visiting the Sandia Peak Tramway in Albuquerque, New Mexico with his family when a young couple caught his attention and they struck up a conversation. As the young man introduced Hart to his girlfriend, Hart immediately thought the location would be the perfect opportunity for a marriage proposal.

“I said, ‘Wow, hey, this would be a great chance for you to propose to your girlfriend and put a big smile on her face,’ and unbeknownst to me, that was the plan,” Hart told KOB News. When the proposal began, Hart grabbed his phone to film the moment. Little did he know he was actually filming a selfie instead of the couple.

“I thought I could handle this. Well unbeknownst to me, I’m taping myself,” Hart said. Hart’s reaction to the proposal is as heart-melting as the actual thing and the video has gone viral on YouTube with thousands of views and shares.
