If you are one of the millions of people who play Angry Birds and you like unique wedding proposals, then you are going to love this story. If you played the new Angry Birds Friends edition, you may have encountered the odd level three.
As you used the sling shot to toss a few birds at the ridiculously easy to hit pigs on level three, you probably noticed the “Marry Me Mel -Ben” written across the screen. This was not a joke by the programmers at Rovio. Ben Levi from Australia was actually proposing to his long-time girlfriend, you guessed it, named Mel.
“I remember looking at it and not really comprehending what it meant,” Melanie Swift said. “He was down on one knee and it just all fell into place and I just started crying…It was just unbelievable.” Once her shock subsided and she knew the game was talking to her, Mel said yes.
Levi is a die-hard fan of the Angry Birds games and after 8 long years decided it was time to propose to his girlfriend. Levi said that his girlfriend always joked that he was so obsessed with Angry Birds that somehow it would be involved in their wedding someday. So to make Mel’s vision a reality, Levi sent an email to the developers of the game in Finland and to his surprise they wrote back and wanted to help.
So the developers at Rovio created a special level to help Levi with his proposal. While at dinner, Levi had Mel play the first few levels on the new Angry Birds Friends. When she got to the third level she saw the message on the screen and a ring resting on top of the pigs. She then looked up to see Levi on one knee. You can see how it all went down in the video below.
