Portlander from 'Lip Dub' proposal aims for second YouTube hit

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland's most famous marriage proposal now has a sequel.

About 18 million people have watched Issac Lamb's "Live Lip Dub" proposal since the video went viral eight months ago. That video took about 60 friends and family members to make it.

This time around the cast grew even larger - including about 70 of Lamb's family members.

"I would say it took about six weeks from idea to actual (completion) of the idea and a lot of that time was spent trying to figure out a moment I could get as many of my family members together as possible," Lamb said.

Lamb says he was inspired at his grandmother's recent birthday party to honor her legacy and how one "I do" can echo across generations.

"She was speaking about how magnificent it was to look across the table and see all these generations of people that have come from one moment and if she hadn't met my grandfather this family wouldn't be possible," Lamb said.

As of the first day, the video had more than 13,000 hits.
