Spencer Stout and Dustin Reeser became overnight internet sensations when their Home Depot flash mob marriage proposal went viral.
“This Valentine’s Day, we celebrate extraordinary love stories all around us,” the ad’s description reads. “And we honor them with #NoOrdinaryCard.”
A frame of Stout and Reeser’s video (pictured below) appears in the Hallmark ad.
Stout and Reeser’s viral video also got them interviewed on The Ellen Show. The video currently has over 13 million views.
Lush Cosmetics is celebrating the holiday with ads featuring same-sex couples as well.
