Man Proposes To His Girlfriend By Faking His Own Death
A man in South Cotabato in the Philippines has an interesting way of expressing love, and now he’s got the world talking.
In an extremely bizarre turn of events, Jeffrey Delrio decided to fake his own death–and then “came back to life” to ask his girlfriend to marry him.
Footage taken of the incident on September 30 shows Jeffrey Delrio lying in the middle of the road in the Philippines while a traffic officer–who was in on the very elaborate proposal–tells his girlfriend Shiela Parayanon to prepare for the worst.
As the man lies “lifeless” on the ground next to his motorcycle, his devastated girlfriend rushes to his side and unsurprisingly, breaks down in tears. Aaaaand here’s where everything gets weird.
Shortly after playing dead following his girlfriend’s arrival, Delrio suddenly “wakes up,” gets on his bended knee, and pulls out a red box containing an engagement ring from his pocket.
The man who was had just faked his death seconds before then proceeds to ask his distressed girlfriend to marry him–and in the name of true love, she said “yes.”
Just a few moments before getting engaged, the visibly distraught girlfriend was captured on camera rushing to the scene. She can be heard screaming and crying as traffic officers try to console her.
Throughout the footage, as officers tried to revive the man (who, as you might remember, wasn’t actually dead), he sits up before surprising his girlfriend with the jewelry box and a smile.
Obviously very shocked by the outcome and insane turn of events, the girlfriend turns to a female officer and hugs her while crying with relief.
The crowd that had gathered around the scene all erupts with cheers, and Ms Parayanon can be seen giving her now-fiancé a playful slap on his arm before accepting the proposal.
