Brett Best is best known for directing the documentary film, Miracle Rising. But when he's not telling the story of South Africa, he's searching the globe, and the universe it seems, to find the perfect person to help him pop the question.

Brett really wanted to surprise his Star Trek obsessed boyfriend, Khalid, with the most amazing proposal ever and so he went out to get Patrick Stewart to help. But the Captain Picard actor was busy so Brett enlisted the help of Patricks bestie, film legend Ian McKellen.

The video was shot some time ago but has got some massive traction online. It shows Brett telling Khalid, also known as Mookie, that he has a question for him and that he wanted to get Patrick to help but that all he found was his best friend.

The video then cuts to a hilarious scene where Sir Ian says "Khalid, I have bad news for you. Good news too! It's good news as well. The bad news is Patrick Stewart is married, I married him... but the good news is Brett is available. So, think it over. Do the right thing".

Check out the adorable, and a little nerdy, proposal video for yourself
