A coke wedding proposal using the new “Share a Coke” bottles was one way a guy named Donnie McGilvray decided to propose to his girl Eloise. But was this new method romantic enough to make guy friend’s hate you, or is just plain tacky?
In a related report by The Inquisitr, a skydiving wedding proposal video showed a guy pranking his girlfriend by pretending to drop the expensive engagement ring while in mid-air.
Ever since Coca Cola came up with the Share A Coke campaign people have been using the words on the bottles to spell out everything from baby announcements to other events. But this man decided to take six bottles of Coke, a Coca-Cola glass, a bouquet of flowers and turn his empty refrigerator into a marriage proposal.
The dude even posted the proposal Coke’s Facebook page, explaining how the deal went down:
“I asked my girlfriend, Eloise to put the milk away in the fridge and this is what she saw. The ‘ice’ was in the glass. Thanks Coca-Cola for all the help… she said yes!!!”
The number of likes went into the millions and some comments suggested the Coca Cola company should pay for their wedding. Coke did send out this message, though:
“All of us at Coca-Cola would like to extend our huge congratulations to Donnie and Eloise on their engagement. We hope they share a very happy life together and will be sending them some special congratulatory bottles to celebrate.”
They also created this congratulatory photo:
Of course, not all comments directed at Donnie were so flattering, and some people seemed to think that trolling this unique wedding proposal idea was the only appropriate response. Some Facebook users even thought it was a marketing stunt, but the company confirmed that Donnie custom ordered the bottles spelling out the message all by himself. But the majority of comments seemed to say that the idea was romantic, not tacky. What do you think?
