For some, creativity runs deep in the serious game of love, ensuring the next outlandish or epic marriage proposal to break the internet is always just around the corner.
This was precisely the case in recent times, courtesy of a US couple, who, after a quiz game in which the suitor posed questions to his girlfriend – with each subsequent correct answer popping "the question" when put together – captured the hearts and minds of social media users far and wide.
In a video shared by @ProfessorRugby and circulated widely on Twitter, the loved-up pair, in the presence of people gathered in the home, play a fun and engaging general knowledge game before the man about his business goes down on bended knee.
He picks up the cards that had been dropped on the carpet after each corresponding answer to the quiz questions he'd asked were called correctly and reveals the words "will you marry me?", much to the stunned amazement of his girlfriend, who shakes uncontrollably as she seemingly tries to make sense of the situation.
