Man Fakes Own Death During Totally Bonkers Marriage Proposal

Would you say yes?

We’re seeing a lot of unique marriage proposals take place these days. Scenarios that guys (and sometimes gals) put a lot of thought and hard work into.

Remember this unbelievable lip syncing proposal that involved hundreds of people? Amazing! Well, you’re about to see a proposal that tops that… In a different kind of way, that is.

Alexey Bykov, 30, from Omsk, Russia, wanted his girlfriend to know what life would be like without him. So he got to work planning his own death and, oh yeah, a marriage proposal as well.

As the Huffington Post reports, Alexey hired a screenwriter, a director, stuntmen, and a make-up artist to fake a fatal car crash. He asked  Irena Kolokov to meet him at a certain time.

“We’d arranged to meet at a certain place but when I arrived there were mangled cars everywhere, ambulances, smoke, and carnage,” Irena said. “Then when I saw Alexey covered in blood lying in the road. A paramedic told me he was dead and I just broke down in tears.”

After the actor playing a paramedic told Irena that her boyfriend was dead – SURPRISE – Alexey, in full death make-up complete with bloody gashes on his face, jumps up off the road and proposes.

“I wanted her to realize how empty life would be without me and how life would have no meaning without me.” Alexey told Orange News.

Aww… So sweet. I think?

“I was so cross I almost killed him again, but for real this time.” Irena adds.

As Yahoo wonders, couldn’t he just organize a flash mob like a normal person?

Ladies, what do you say? Sweet in it’s own way or is dude not dealing from a full deck? Would you say yes or is faking death simply too awful?
