49 Carrots Dance For Marriage Proposal


QINGDAO, China, Aug. 11 (UPI) — A Chinese man surprised his girlfriend by proposing marriage after he and 48 friends performed a dance routine while dressed as giant carrots.

Pan Kun recruited friends to join him Saturday for the dance in the city of Qingdao’s Aofan Square and his girlfriend, Zhang Xinyu, initially thought she was only a spectator and called her boyfriend to tell him about the spectacle, the Wall Street Journal’s China Real Time blog reported Wednesday.

However, Pan unveiled himself after the dance, to the theme song of Jiangsu TV dating show “If You Are the One,” and asked Zhang to be his wife.

Zhang accepted the proposal while a crowd cheered for her to “Marry him!”

The blog said local media reports indicate the stunt cost Pan $15,600.
