Man Fakes His Own Death to Propose to Girlfriend


Wow. A man in Russia wanted to propose to his girlfriend and thought the best way to do it would be to first show her what her life would be like without him so he hired stuntmen and makeup artists to stage a fake car crash! 

She said: "When I arrived there were mangled cars everywhere, ambulances, smoke, and carnage," Kolokov told Russian media. "Then when I saw Alexey covered in blood lying in the road a paramedic told me he was dead and I just broke down in tears." 

He then proposed and apparently it worked because she said yes! 

I don't know about you guys but I would be furious if my boyfriend did this to me!!! 

What do you think of this? Isn't it a bit manipulative? Or maybe it is romantic? Would you say yes if someone did this to do?

Worst proposal ever

That sounds like the kind of proposal where he didn't think she would say yes if he asked like a normal man. That he is a desperate man who was worried she was going to break up with him and so he scared her into it. Total loser move in my opinion.

This is ridiculous! I would not have said yes, at least certainly not in the moment. Good grief, save the cash spent on stuntmen and propose to me on a romantic getaway instead! I think people are getting way too hung up on novelty these days.

I'd would have killed him!!

Losing someone you love is the hardest thing in life to go through and
if my old man tried this on me he had better have his running shoes on
at the time. I can't believe she said yes to him. I don't think I would
have bin able to even talk to him with out wanting to ring his neck for a
good six months. I may not even be able to for give him at all for that
matter. This isn't funny at all and is the worse way I have ever heard
of a guy asking his girl for her hand. It makes me sick!

This is not romantic, or funny or tactful... it's disgusting! I can't believe someone thought this was a good idea! I feel sorry for her! What other terrible ideas is he going to have in their life together? ..... Dead puppies in stead of flowers!!??? WORST idea ever.

Yikes! This is definitely nothing that I would ever want to be done to me. I'm all for doing crazy engagements, but this is a bit much. I wonder if she actually meant "Yes" or if it was shock!!

He would wish he was dead by the time I was done with him! I would be positively furious! That is the worst idea ever. BUT maybe they are actor/theatrical/drama/artsy nuts and enjoy pulling off productions like this? I dunno. But it definitely wouldn't have worked on me.

I agree with Horrible, that is a terrible way to propose! I can't believe it actually worked..

OMG disgusting. This isn't funny, not even close. And honestly I think she said yes out of shock. I'm waiting for the follow up article that says she maims him and dumps him after she gets over her initial shock of what he just put her through.

Definitly not romantic. He could he done some real damage to her psyche or at the least given her bad dreams for a long time. This was stupid and wreckless. He does not deserve to be around women at all let alone marrying!

I would be SOOOOO mad!!!! Stick with the traditional way and add a little spice. If my Bf did this the answer would be "NO" thats craziness that he feels this is what he thought would make her happy. OMG its making me mad just thinking about it.
