Another day, another reason to love Ian McKellen.

The national treasure was so happy with the US Supreme Court's decision on Friday to make gay marriage legal across the country, he and fellow actor Derek Jacobi filmed themselves giggling like children and throwing confetti over themselves while wearing Stonewall Inn t-shirts.

While Queen anthem "We Are the Champions" plays in the background, Jacobi playfully proposes to his friend McKellen, who seems delighted to accept.

The actors, who star in the sitcom Vicious together, will be marshalling New York's Gay Pride Parade on Sunday. Looks like they're definitely already into the swing of things.
