Aquarium helps local man propose over live stream
The coronavirus outbreak has forced many Tulsa businesses to temporarily close, including the Oklahoma Aquarium. Thursday afternoon, the aquarium proved that even closed doors can’t stop true love. During a livestream of their bull shark feeding, the aquarium helped an Oklahoma man propose to his girlfriend. As sharks ate in the background, the camera revealed a sign reading, “Katie, Of all the fish in the sea, you’re the only one for me. Will you marry me? –Drew”
Drew Combest had originally planned to propose to his girlfriend inside the aquarium’s shark tunnel, but his plans were derailed when the aquarium closed indefinitely due to COVID-19 concerns. Drew reached out to the aquarium, who helped him plan the next best thing. The Oklahoma Aquarium is home to the world’s largest collection of bull sharks in captivity, making it the perfect proposal venue for Drew’s shark-loving girlfriend, Katie.
While they’re closed, the Oklahoma Aquarium is live streaming their exhibits once a day, five days a week on their Facebook page. They’re also posting new educational activities every day as part of their Unstoppable Science series.
