Poll: I Would Walk 500 Miles and I Would Walk 500 More...

This is the 500th poll I have created to be published on IMDb. This is a milestone that no one else has reached. I hope you have enjoyed taking my polls as much as I have enjoyed making them.

The Proclaimers song "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" was prominently featured in the '90s dramedy Benny and Joon after actress Mary Stuart Masterson requested it be included in the film. The song refers to the challenging task of walking 1,000 miles (500 + 500) just in order to be with your love. Movies can be great showcases of grand gestures performed to express love between characters.

Which of these ambitious acts would you most like to see your loved one do for you? Which would melt your heart and cause you to love them forever?
