WATCH: Marriage Proposal Goes Badly Wrong
Tuesday 27th August 2013
A man was left stunned when he proposed to his girlfriend in a mall in Dubai - after she hit him around the head with a busker's ukelele.
The excruciating incident was filmed by one of the hundreds of watching shoppers and has gone viral on the internet in the last week.
The hopeless romantic took to the mic to read a soppy poem to his girlfriend, saying: "When you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while. And my heart ceases to beat and there is nothing else I seek except you."
He then gets down on to one knee. His horrified girlfriend begged him to stop, but when he didn't, she grabbed a ukelele from the band behind her and swung it at her beau, to gasps from the crowds.
The clip has been watched thousands of times online, although many believe it was a publicity stunt due to the train that drove through in the middle.
