If you thought you had a clever proposal idea, think again! An El Lay resident just spent over $17,000 to propose to their girlfriend via skywriting — but included a random jab at Joe Rogan.
On Saturday, the 53-year-old podcaster became a trending topic after multiple people spotted the message in the sky. The words “will you marry me Mollie Pratt” first appeared above, and social media users later revealed that a series of follow-up messages popped up as well. It reportedly read:
“She said yes.”
“I love you more than anything.”
“Excited to spend my life with you.”
“Until death do us part.”
You know, the typical sweet things one would possibly want to hear during their special proposal. But wait, there is more! The whole ordeal ended with one final note:
“Joe Rogan is literally 5 foot 3.”
FYI, Google claims that the former Fear Factor host is 5 foot 7 while he has previously said on Twitter that he’s actually 5 foot 8. Not that it matters, though, because the diss was just too good! Here’s the evidence though in case you’re curious (below):

So far, no one has taken credit for the sky-written dig. However, TheWrap discovered that the company SkyTypers carried out the service. A spokesperson for the business told the outlet that the person paid a total of $17,500 for 10 messages.
We guess the client needed a little wiggle room in case Mollie said no! But honestly, who spends that kind of money on a proposal unless you’re a Kardashian?! Of course, this is assuming the proposal was real and not just one hella expensive prank. If it were legit, though, talk about an interesting story for the future!
Following the funny incident, people took to Twitter to share their mixed reactions. One user wrote:
“I mean, I hate that someone has that kind of disposable income but on the other hand I respect it.”
Another commentator said they “aspire to this level of wealth and utter pettiness.” A third then expressed:
“Someone just spent thousands of dollars to write ‘Joe Rogan is literally 5 foot 3’ in the skies of Los Angeles and honestly money well spent.”

Some folks have even speculated that the stunt might have been an advertisement for his podcast The Joe Rogan Experience. However, the diss would make sense since Joe recently came under fire for telling young peeps not to get the COVID vaccine. He did walk back on those statements, calling himself a “f**king moron” and say he’s “not a respected source of information.
Anyways, congrats to Mollie! We wish you and whoever you end up with nothing but happiness! What do you think of this wild marriage proposal, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments (below)!
