About a month ago, I did a post about a fellow who is working to raise money and media attention in order to secure a sponsor for a marriage proposal during the Super Bowl, “One Super Proposal“. My freind, Joe Morin is helping this guy out with media relations as is Greg Jarboe on the PR side of things.
Joe told me last night he posted an announcement that “JP” will be doing a segment on “Good Morning America” tomorrow morning. JP’s identity will be disguised so as to not tip off the lucky lady he plans to propose to. For those of us working during that time, I hope Joe and JP will be posting a copy of the show to YouTube or Google Video.
This is a very curious exercise in viral and buzz marketing for sure. I’m going to do my best to find a way to meet “JP” if I can, because there are a lot of questions “buzzing” about this. Regardless, all the media attention they’ve achieved already is pretty amazing.
