Some people will go to long, even crazy, lengths for a marriage proposal. From jumbo cams to skywriting, most over-the-top professions of love have been done before. But one romantic pulled a crazy stunt recently by faking his own death…and then immediately proposing to his girlfriend. So was his move endearing or just plain nutty?
According to the source, Alexey Bykov of Russia hired a slew of professionals to fake his own death in front of his girlfriend. His staff oncluded a director, stuntman and makeup artists. The couple was supposed to meet somewhere, and she arrived to find wrecked cars, smoke everywhere…and Alexy, lying on the ground covered in blood. A paramedic then told her that her boyfriend was dead, right before Alexy jumped up and proposed. She said yes.
If this proposal sounds mean and perhaps immature, his reasoning behind it was even worse:
I wanted her to realize how empty her life would be without me and how life would have no meaning without me.”
Oh. How…romantic, and not at all cruel. If a guy proposed to me like this, I can’t imagine my reaction would be positive. It certainly wouldn’t result in a “yes.” Even a jumbo tron would be better! [via Neatorama]
What do you think of this proposal?
