The video, which has just one scene with the two loved-up characters, shows the man with an engagement ring in his hand. As he prepares to pop the question, the lady gestures that he should go down on his knee.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that a very controversial video recently went viral on social media. In the clip, a lady is seen kneeling on one knee in a public place and proposing to her boyfriend.
The man, who seemed to be extremely shy, expressed disbelief at her proposal. He turned away from her several times and rejected her marriage offer by means of body language and gestures.
Despite his rejection, the lady making the proposal did not give up; she kept kneeling and begging him to say yes. Those who witnessed the event also asked him to agree to her proposal.
When the man refused to say yes, his girlfriend stood up in anger and slapped him. Then she started ranting about how displeased she was that he had refused her despite the fact that they had been dating for six years.
