Sure, you could ask your girlfriend to marry you with a simple bend of the knee, but where’s the chivalry in that? What every woman really wants is to cry tears of sheer terror in the moments leading up to the big question.
That’s the logic Matt Van Vliet applied when he colluded with police to fake a contentious traffic stop (and his own arrest) before asking for his girlfriend’s hand in marriage. Haha! Good one, Matt! Instant classic. People probably won’t even believe you pulled it off. Good thing the whole scene was captured by the most romantic of recording devices: a police car’s dashboard camera! Flawless.
