Let's do the Time Warp again! While attending a live screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, one die hard fan took the opportunity to propose to his lady during the song, "Dammit Janet."

During the song, the character Brad Majors (Barry Bostwick) proposes to his college sweetheart Janet Weiss (Susan Sarandon) after she catches the bride's bouquet at a church wedding. And just like in the movie, the real life Janet accepted, too.

An excerpt of the lyrics:

Here's a ring to prove that I'm no joker
There's three ways that love can grow
That's good, bad or mediocre
Oh J-A-N-E-T I love you so

For the uninitiated, the enduring cult fanbase of the 40-year-old film musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show continues to thrive, showing the film in select theaters worldwide. Typically, each showing includes a live cast playing all the parts in front of the movie screen, interacting with audiences, yelling out alternative movie lines, and dancing in the aisles.
