A South African man went viral with a video of him proposing to his girlfriend. However, the venue was not the traditional scene of a proposal.

Instead of a romantic setting or special place that vibes with a heartfelt proposal, the man chose to bend the knee at his girlfriend's father's funeral.

Social media users took to the internet to share their reactions to the video


"I have mixed emotions on this one, on one hand, maybe he thought this will make her feel comforted on the other, she is mourning and not in her senses (vulnerable) and needs the space to grieve ‍♀️"


"Same here like the timing is so off. Switching of moods from 0 to 100 won't work here."


"Public proposals put women under pressure already but this level of pressure is even worse. At her lowest you still want her to make life time decision but as long as they are happy I guess."

Earlier, Briefly News reported that a man’s “far from perfect proposal” left South Africans both stunned and embarrassed on his behalf.

A video shared on social media by @Madame_Fossette shows a couple standing in a queue at McDonalds as they await their food order before the man whips out the engagement ring as the jam-packed store looks on in curiosity.

Although the couple is not audible within the clip, the woman is seen evidently annoyed with the man’s gesture and turns her back to him as he continues to hold the ring in its box.
