NORWALK, Conn. -- JoyRide Instructors Adam Keller and Jared Marinelli – who captured the hearts and attention of millions around the world with their flash mob same-sex wedding proposal on Valentine's Day – are among those featured in a new series by HooplaHa-Only Good News.
"Joy Story" follows the couple as they plan their wedding. The Danbury residents, who are in the process of moving to Redding, work as instructors throughout Fairfield County (JoyRide has studios in Wilton, Ridgefield, Westport and Darien). They became viral sensations earlier in the year when the video of their surprise flash mob engagement lit up the online world.
The live stream on Facebook begins Thursday, Sept 8, and the 20 episode series begins Wednesday, Sept. 21.
Roker Media and HooplaHa are both committed to providing a narrative that can motivate a broad audience to act with compassion.
“We're always looking for unique and inspiring partners,” said Roker Media Chairman Al Roker. "HooplaHa provides access to compelling, uplifting, socially aware content that is also entertaining.
