A lot of men try to be original when popping the question and while most opt for a romantic setting, one man almost gave his bae a heart attack.
The video, which was posted on Twitter by social media user @ImDubMan__ on Tuesday, shows police officers pulling their guns on a man at a gas station.
He immediately drops to his knees and the cops are heard screaming at him, at which point his girlfriend steps in between him and the officers' guns.
He is then seen taking something slowly out of his jacket, before opening it to reveal a diamond ring.
The terrified young lady is clearly filled with mixed emotions as the cops reveal they were in on it.
Within only a day the video gathered over 2.32 million views, but Briefly.co.za gathered social media users had mixed reactions on the unique proposal.
Some accused the man of being insensitive, especially with police brutally being high in certain parts of the world, including the United States where it is believed the video was taken.
Social media user AloSpeaks (@Tellem_Loysius) wrote, "I’m not the one to take things too deep, but this is so disrespectful to the families who have lost loved ones to police fatalities. I’m all for black love but don’t use black fear to propose. That shit had to feel terrible."
