BENTONVILLE, Ark., May 27 (UPI) — An Arkansas man incorporated his passion for video games into his engagement proposal by creating a custom Mario level.

Shane Birkinbine used Nintendo’s “Super Mario Maker” a video game/creation tool that allows users to create their own levels from the company’s classic side-scrolling game franchise.

He shared video of his girlfriend Pam Edwards playing the level, in which he spelled out the message “Pam will you marry me” in blocks.

Birkinbine guided Edwards through the level quickly stopping her from destroying the blocks that spelled out her name while encouraging her to move her character to the right, revealing the rest of the message.

Edwards laughed in delight and accepted Birkinbine’s proposal before ultimately completing the level.
