He makes her want to say “I do”! Singer Colbie Caillat is officially engaged to her longtime boyfriend Justin Young. The celebrity couple announced their celebrity engagement via Caillat’s Instagram account. According to, “The “Try” singer, who celebrated her 30th birthday on May 28, tweeted a photo of herself on a boat with longtime love Justin Young, a fellow musician. In the pic, a ring is just barely visible on her left hand, which rests affectionately on Young’s shoulder.” She made it cute with a Friends quote to announce it by saying, “This sweet man asked me to be his lobster…And I said yes.” It seemingly alluded to the episode where Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) tells Ross (David Schwimmer) that Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) is his lobster. (According to her, lobsters “fall in love and mate for life,” and then walk around their tank “holding claws.”)

This singer used a Friends quote to announce her celebrity engagement. What are some other ways to use pop culture to announce something special?
