A man tricked his girlfriend into thinking he was going to propose to her by getting down on one knee with a ring box on Valentine’s Day.
Brad Holmes, from Southampton, told his girlfriend Jenny Davies, from Portsmouth, how happy she makes him. He can then be seen taking out a white box from his pocket in the footage which has been seen more than seven million times.
Jenny looks overcome with emotion as Brad goes down on one knee. But instead of asking her to marry him, he leaves her shocked by saying: ‘Will you make me a cup of tea?’
Brad Holmes, from Southampton, asked girlfriend Jenny to stand up, left, and then got down on one knee while his phone recorded the moment she thought he was going to propose to her
Jenny takes Brad’s hand and smiles nervously while Brad tells her that he’s shaking and ‘loves her to bits’
The couple can be seen sitting on the sofa with Jenny watching TV – and Brad flashes the white ring box at the camera without her spotting it.
He then gets up and positions his phone to film the moment, with Jenny asking: ‘Why are you recording? What are you doing?’
Brad then gets down one knee and says: ‘Basically, I’m a bit nervous. Give me your hand.’
Jenny can be seen taking his hand and looking emotional, putting her other hand to her head.
Brad says: ‘You know you make me the happiest man in the world. I’m shaking but I love you to bits, you know that, right?
Brad asks Jenny: ‘I want you to make me the happiest man in the world. I have got a question to ask you’
Brad holds out a white ring box in his hands and it’s all too much for Jenny, who has both hands to her mouth
‘I want you to make me the happiest man in the world. I have got a question to ask you.’
Brad has the small jewellery box in his hands and it’s all too much for Jenny, who now has both hands to her mouth.
There’s more suspense when Brad is unable to open the box.
But when he does, he asks: ‘Will you make me a cup of tea?’
And instead of a big diamond ring, the box contains nothing more than a tea bag.
Jenny appears to be less than impressed – as she grabs the box and throws it to the floor.
But instead of proposing, Brad asks: ‘Will you make me a cup of tea?’ Brad appeared to have a tea bag inside the box usually reserved for an engagement ring and Jenny throws the box to the floor
Jenny storms out of the room while swearing at Brad who is laughing the video which has been viewed 7.7million times on Brad’s Facebook page
She storms out of the room screaming: ‘Are you f****** joking.
‘You horrible little ****.’
Since the video was posted yesterday, it has been viewed 7.7million times on Brad’s Facebook page.
Brad, who shares videos under the name Brad’s Dad and often pranks his father Stephen Holmes, has 400,000 people like his page but even some of those were shocked by the prank.
Zlatko Georgevski posted: ‘That was not cool bro. That’s one thing you don’t do to get likes or laughs. I’ll be surprised if she didn’t leave you after that.’
While Joanne Rowland jumped to Brad’s defence, she wrote: ‘Everyone jumping on the band wagon that this is so wrong, worse thing ever, she knows what he’s like!
‘That’s why she loves him, I’m a woman and I think it’s funny. She probably laughing now anyway.’
