The video began with Smith introducing himself and stating that he was speaking from Antarctica. He said he just returned from the South Pole and wished everyone a Merry Christmas. “Now I know that you may not have gotten the stuff that you wanted. I promise you, you are not going to end this Christmas empty-handed,” he said, adding some curiosity.
That is when Smart turned to Hallum, bending on a knee and proposed to her. Hallum gasped at first as everyone around clapped and Smart said, “Come on, yes?” Hallum nodded in affirmation.
