Sticking a ring inside a red velvet cupcake or surprising her with a flash mob is no longer cutting it when it comes to great wedding proposals, apparently. A man decided to go all the way left-field with his proposal by having his girlfriend think he was about to be another black man dead at the hands of trigger-happy police officers.
In a video making it way through social media, police come speeding into a gas station before drawing their weapons and ordering the man to “get on the ground” and to give up his gun. A woman soon comes in and puts herself in danger by standing in between officers and the man. “I’m his wife! Back up!,” she’s heard yelling to officers while protecting him. “I will get [his gun]. I will get it from him.” Rather than a gun, the man pulls out an engagement ring and proposes to the complete surprise of the woman and the applause of dozens.
