Ellen DeGeneres decided to surprise wife Portia De Rossi for the 15th anniversary of the day they started dating. Sometimes gifts don't always go as planned.

"Portia and I started dating 15 years ago today. I hired a plane to fly by the house with a banner that said 15 with a heart. I should have specified the size," Ellen wrote on Saturday on Instagram, alongside a video of the aircraft and its tiny banner.

It sounds like she imagined the banner to make a much BIGGER statement.
