Let me go on the record by saying I despise public wedding proposals. First of all, proposing in front of a large public crowd – especially at a sporting event – is a douchey thing to do. Second, it puts the woman on the spot, as she almost always has to accept. Heh, almost always.
In a video posted by a bystander on YouTube the man startles his girlfriend by proposing to her in front of gleeful customers in the food court section of the Sherman Oaks Galleria in Los Angeles. The dejected romantic declares to the girl – named Caroline – just how much he loves her and why they must be together. He is joined by a guitarist, who accompanies him as he bursts into song, serenading the panicking girl with Neil Diamond’s classic song ‘Sweet Caroline’.
But despite his heartfelt sentiments and the ogling shoppers who shout at her to accept, ‘Caroline’, whose hands have been clamped over her mouth in shock since he started his proposal and murmuring ‘Oh my God, what are you doing?’ at him, looks around and decides to dash out.
Funniest. Story. Ever! There’s even posted online.
