A friend of mine sent me a link to the SuperProposal. It’s the effort of some guy to get a corporate sponsor for his proposal to his girlfriend during the Superbowl.
The Goal – To Propose to My Girlfriend on National TV During the 2007 Superbowl in Miami
The guy wanted to raise enough money to buy an ad, and was asking for contributions, but only hit the $100k mark (versus a $2.5 million ad). So now he is hoping a corporation will help him out and he’s going to donate the dough already raised to charity. So he gets credit for this grand romantic gesture, and also gets credit for this grand philanthropic gesture.
On behalf of men everywhere that a) now feel inadequate for their own minor league proposal b) feel guilty because the most generous thing we have done lately is pre-order girl scout cookies, and c) also have to face a wife who says “why can’t you be more romantic like that guy”, I hope and pray that someone kicks this guy really hard in the junk.
