What is it with Google Maps that seems to inspire people to propose marriage?

Googler Michael Weiss-Malik, a member of the Google Geo Team, planned ahead and stood at the side of the road when the Google Street View pictures were being updated in a drive-by photo shoot. (Read Michael’s explanation of what he did and why.) Google has been aggressively expanding Street View images this summer.
Michael isn’t the first to have a marriage proposal appear in Google Maps. Here’s a few more we’ve collected in the past:
“Will You Marry Me”
“Marry Me, D”
“Thelma, Will U Marry Me?”
Of course, people have also intentionally or unintentionally used Google Maps for communicating commercial promotion or ads — sometimes called “roofvertising“.
