Worst Fiancé Ever Fakes Own Death to Propose to Girlfriend
Today’s dose of WTF news comes all the way from Russia! The Internet absolutely loves to hear all about elaborate marriage proposals. We sit and watch Youtube videos of lip-dub proposals, awesome movie trailer proposals, even flash mob proposals. I feel bad for lots of dudes out there these days, honestly. With all of these amazing videos going viral, I bet there are lots of girls out there who have some mega-high expectations! Well this proposal from Russia really takes the cake… and not because it is super-sappy and cute. In fact… it’s the total opposite.
You know what’s super romantic? Faking your own death… at least that’s what Alexey Bykov thinks! Bykov, an Omsk, Russia native, was absolutely positive that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with his girlfriend, Irene Kolokov. However, he wanted to be sure that Irene felt the same way. What better way to figure that one out by staging a massively terrifying accident where he “died” at the scene!? Totally normal… Totally romantic…
Bykov hired a stunt man, makeup artists, and a filmmaker to coordinate an elaborate car crash, one that would be fit for any Hollywood movie. He told his girlfriend to meet him at a designated place at a certain time–she had no idea she would arrive to the scene of a horrifying accident. There, in the wreckage, laid Bykov covered in blood. Kolokov told Orange News, “When I arrived, there were mangled cars everywhere, ambulances, smoke, and carnage…a paramedic told me he was dead, and I just broke down in tears.”
Satisfied with her mourning, Bykov jumped to his feet and proposed–still covered in blood and bandages. Kolokov admitted, “I was so cross I almost killed him again, but for real this time,”and really, could you blame her!? Bykov explained, ”I wanted her to realize how empty her life would be without me and how life would have no meaning without me.” Ahh, I uh… I don’t know… Suddenly this dude sounds like a real Creeper McCreeperson in my book. From romantic to off-putting in seconds flat! Well, at least I’M not the one marrying him… God help his fiancé when he decides to celebrate their anniversary… or have kids. Yikes.
