Romanian ambush proposal misfires badly

A man in Romania has delivered a shock proposal to his bewildered girlfriend.

Instead of getting down on one knee on a romantic beach, he staged a fake ambush proposal - and asked his friends to dress up as masked hijackers wearing balaclavas and stop their car.

In the video clip, the masked friends pulled the girl from the vehicle and shoved her to the ground.

One shouted, "Do you know this man? Do you know what he has in this boot?"

They then lead her around to the boot where her boyfriend was waiting on bended knee with a diamond ring.

Despite by being upset and confused by the unconventional proposal, the girlfriend said yes.
