​Spider-Man Player Uses World's Saddest Easter Egg To Propose, She Said Yes

Although the world's saddest Easter egg was a disaster for one man, another Spider-Man player managed to successfully propose with the hidden message.

If you don't know what we're talking about: We recently reported on a Spider-Man fan who, whilst the game was in development, asked Insomniac Games to implement a personalised marriage proposal.

It read "Maddie, will you marry me?" and all was expected to go well. Of course, it didn't, and now the could-have-been couple have gone their separate ways.

However, another Spider-Man fan, who's girlfriend is also called Maddie, took advantage of the rare opportunity - and it's the love story we've all been waiting for.

In a Reddit post, user mitch3750 shared a picture of him down on one knee, with the title "proposed to my gf using this easter egg (her name is also maddie) [she said yes!!!]"

Maddie 2.0 also commented down below, saying "I love you babe, you're the best and I think the world of you," to which Mitch replied "awe, u made a reddit just to see the post :') :hearts::kissing_heart::ring:."


Cutie pies. Mitch is only 20 years old but he obviously couldn't pass up on this opportunity. When the time's right, the time's right! Let's hope they live a happy life together, but our heart goes out to the guy Insomniac created the proposal for - there's plenty more fish in the sea, mate.

What do you think about this news? Would you use this if your girlfriend was called Maddie? Would you prefer something a little more romantic? Let us know.

If you want to see this in-game message, you'll need to swing into the world of Spider-Man, which was released on 7 September exclusively for PS4.
