Super Bowl Proposal

One lucky girl is about to get a big time proposal. Her boyfriend started out months ago trying to raise more than $2 million via website donations. The reason? He wanted to propose to her in a Super Bowl commercial.

After failing to raise the necessary funds, the groom-to-be decided to take a different approach: sponsorship. His proposal, if aired, will now feature product placements to cover the cost of the commercial. In addition, he signed up his future fiancée to appear on several talk shows the next day. Let's hope she says yes!

Should he go to such extremes? Do the sponsorships take away from the romance of the proposal? Are they in it for the hype?

Some skeptics doubt the surprise factor in this "public declaration of love". How can one guy meet with Fortune 500 companies, television producers, and publicists to create a proposal without his girlfriend suspecting. Perhaps she actually is in on the plan and it's all a big sham. Being the romantic that I am though, I'm hoping to see this guy get down on one knee on February 4th.

Now if only he could pass some of his creativity on to other men. ;)

UPDATE

Unfortunately, the not-yet-named Super Bowl proposer was unable to get his proposal aired during the big game. He's now moved on to a backup plan and his proposal will be aired (locally) during an upcoming episode of his girlfriend's favorite TV show, Veronica Mars. How many guys would go to such extremes to get their proposal on TV? I'm still wondering how he managed to keep this entire thing a secret from his girlfriend.

UPDATE #2
