Man organizes flashmob to propose to his girlfriend at UCLA

Nam Tran and his girlfriend Trang Vu met each other on the campus of UCLA, so he decided to bring her back to the school for a very special surprise proposal. Tran organized a giant flash mob outside UCLA's Ackerman Union, the place they first met.

Tran and a large group of students and friends danced to Frankie Valli's "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" before he got down and one knee and asked Trang to marry him. She responded, "duh."

Since then, the video of the proposal has gone viral.

Tran and Vu sit down with Christine Romans and Carol Costello on American Morning today to discuss  the proposal and what it's like to have their special moment broadcasted to thousands of people online.

Hungry, hungry hippos: Boat gets too close to pack, hippo charges

Watch this amazing video of a hippo charging a tourist boat in Kenya.

Boat passengers say that one of the females likely felt threatened when the boat traveled too close. Even with the motor going full blast on the boat, it had trouble outrunning them. The hippos eventually gave up.

Sure, hippos are the third largest land mammal, but in the water they're pretty fast.
