MISSOULA, Mont. — On Sept. 30, 2010, University of Montana students Jack Hyer and Rebecca Strellnauer went on their first date.

The date went so well that Hyer knew he wanted to marry Strellnauer eventually.

During the next four years, Hyer traveled to 26 countries, and while doing so put together a video of himself lip-syncing The Proclaimers’ “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” at venues all over the world.

The couple graduated from the University of Montana on May 17.

Hyer tricked Strellnauer into thinking they were going to watch his “graduation slideshow,” instead springing the epic video.

He then proposed to Strellnauer.

As you can imagine, she said yes!

    What an awesome fun guy . . . Rebecca, I am sure, knows just how lucky she is. I hope they have a happy ever after.

    My husband used to play that song for me all the time before we married, now when we hear it every once in awhile, it brings back memories & makes us smile.

    I hope she understands how lucky she is. Most of us will never experience what she has, and we will die alone.
