Proposal Prank With an Unexpected Ending
Occurred on August 10, 2017 / Hollywood, California, USA
Info from Licensor: "I spent a month fooling my girlfriend, Hannah, into thinking she was getting an exciting job from a Saudi Arabian film company. I made up an email address and a character named 'Jarta al-Kor.' 'Jarta' scheduled Hannah for a live interview. At this interview, he introduced his assistant, Neena. Neena was actually me, dressed up in a full coverage burqa. Jarta had Hannah draw Neena from memory 3 times in 3 different poses. During the final pose, I removed the burqa and brought out an engagement ring. Jarta informed her, sadly, that she would not get the job. She turned around, expecting to see a lady in a burqa, but saw me. I proposed, but she seemed confused. She began to politely reject me, saying this is not what she wanted. Flabbergasted, I began to think this was a rejection. Suddenly, she busted out a ring of her own and proposed to me. It turned out she was expecting me to mess with her, so had been carrying a ring around for 2 months in her purse, waiting for the moment to strike. This happened in Hollywood, CA."
