Rodrigo had plans to visit New York City from Mexico City with a group of friends. His girlfriend initially wasn't going to be able to make it but she changed her mind and decided to come along. Rodrigo knew this was the right time to propose. His girlfriend LOVES Minions from the movie Despicable Me, and with the new Minions movie coming out, he decided that was the perfect way to propose.

He hired The Heart Bandits to coordinate a Minion flash mob right in the heart of Times Square for his marriage proposal. When he and Aranza got to Military Island in Times Square, they found one Minion amongst the crowd of street performers. They approached the Minion and asked her if they could take a photo with her. After they took the photo, the flash mob began. During the dance routine, the Minion's pulled the couple into the center and danced around them in a circle. Each Minion handed Aranza a rose and finally, Rodrigo dropped to his knee to propose. Aranza said,"yes" as a crowd of people began cheering.
