This is a video of the homemade Gir (from Invader Zim) robot Geekologie reader Dorothy's boyfriend (now fiance) made to propose to her. This isn't the actual proposal though, just Gir showing off his animations. Also, who knew Cinnamon Toast Crunch was called Croque Cannelle in French? NOT THIS GUY. I would seriously kill for some Cookie Crisp right now.
He built me my very own animated, and fully articulated Gir proposal robot. Made from raw sheet metal and pure genius! How he did so much of this at home without me noticing, well, hes always playing with some sort of gizmo. When Gir says "i made it myself!" his chest hatch popped open and that's where the ring was hidden.
Admittedly, it's pretty damn cute. And that's saying a lot because I hate robots so hard one time I popped a vein in my forehead just thinking about them. It was a squirter. I let it spray on the apartment wall and now it looks like somebody died in here. Which, SPOILER: somebody did. It was the old man who lived in the apartment before me! It smelled when I moved in, but now it's okay.
Hit the jump for the video.
Thanks Dorothy, just let me know when and where the wedding is and I'll be there (or at least to the reception if there's an open bar).
