Welcome to our column, "Hey, Quick Question," where we investigate seemingly random happenings in the fashion and beauty industries. Enjoy!

Have you ever housed a Chipotle burrito so appetizing, or tasted a spoonful of guacamole so worthy of its $1.95 price tag, that you've thought, "You know, I could get engaged in this place, right at this moment?" Marc Jacobs, American fashion king and purveyor of such fine cuisine has, apparently, because he proposed to his longtime partner, model and candlemaker Charly DeFrancesco, in a Chipotle on Wednesday night. 

The engagement had, in the words of Bill Hader's Stefon, everything, including an elaborate flash mob set to the tunes of Prince's "Kiss." Jacobs posted a video of the whole thing to his Instagram later that evening: The clip opens to B-roll of a Chipotle on a New York City corner, "The Hills"-style, and it ends with a disembodied voice proclaiming, "Okay, okay, go get Chipotle!" (In between, we see the actual getting-down-on-one-knee, as well as Jacobs and DeFrancesco grooving together in oversized, Balenciaga-style puffers.) The post was also hashtagged "#flashmobatchipotle."
