Public Proposal Goes Horribly Wrong

By Wyatt Earp | May 17, 2011

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.

    Not to be argumentative, but dontcha think it would be even funnier if she accepted, and they got married, and a few years from now he returned to the food court and he sang…..

    And if the overnight thread was gonna be about Jerry Reed, then I’m gonna take my keyboard out in the backyard and bury it under the full moon.

    Danny – I didn’t think of that, but it’s definitely a possibility.

    LDIV – Serves him right.

    JT – Jerry Reed. Oh. My. God.

    Dr. Evil – Thanks, Nelson.

    The plight of the beta male.

    GroovyVIC’s hubby is definitely an alpha.

    we were supposed to go to dinner and I figured he would propose? but I guess he couldn’t wait or something so he asked me in our kitchen over pizza when I was all shlubby!

    I was like “hey wait! aren’t we doing this TOMORROW?”

    oh well so I got the Romantic Manayunk Kitchen Proposal. which is nice.

    GroovyVic – Wow, that’s a pretty good move.

    Mark – Absolutely.

    Orchid – Eh, it’s not bad. The restaurant where I proposed is closed now, and it was hard to keep the ring hidden because the box was big. (The box, not the diamond.)
