Two members of the Detroit Pistons’ spirit squad are on their way to the altar, after the “Extreme” Team member Ryan popped the question to dancer Jenn with an epically choreographed midcourt routine during a time out in the third quarter of a recent game.

On Feb. 11, the NBA Pistons played the Washington Wizards on their home court in Little Caesars Arena, and the fans were surprised with a very romantic performance by the Extreme Team squad, CBS Sports reports.

In video footage which has now massively viral, Jenn sat down on the right, while Ryan and his entourage to dance, move and groove to Bruno Mars’ hit tune “Marry You.” Pull out all the stops for the apple of his eye, Ryan breakdances, backflips, throw a blower and the controls are hair – all in stride – before you get on one knee.

Jenn, meanwhile, said yes – much to the delight of the crowd and the collective Internet. Images of the sweet scene shared on Twitter by the NBA – has since been viewed over 538,000 time in less than 24 hours, winning thousands of likes and comments.

“Well done boy, congratulations,” a fan wrote.

“That was amazing,” another agreed.

“So cute,” one chimed in.

Others, meanwhile, were a bit more shocked by the very public and extensive proposal.

“I am shocked” a cynic declared.

“Imagine fighting for a playoff spot, and have to deal with this in the middle of the 3rd quarter,” another agreed.

“Imagine, to say no,” another cringed.

“Lol is this still a thing… I feel for the girl,” one said.

As noted by the Detroit Free Press, midgame proposals are becoming something of a local tradition for the Pistons dance squad. Last year, dancer Erynn was surprised at the end of a routine with a proposal of marriage from her beau — albeit with a little help from dear Hooper the mascot, and less theater.

All judgments aside, cheers to a long and happy for the future bride and groom — both on and off the tennis court.
