So imagine how this guy felt when he popped the big question to his girlfriend...and she doofed him over the head with a guitar before walking off!
The man was strolling through a crowded a shopping centre in India when grabbed the microphone from some busking musicians.
In a video clip, he tells his girlfriend: "You're my sweetie pie, my everything and I know you find this cheesy but I want everyone to know, you make me really happy."
But instead of being bowled over by his romantic gesture, the girl begs him to stop. Undeterred, he bends down on one knee - and then she lets her true feelings really show.
Grabbing a small guitar, she bashes him over the head and storms off. He, meanwhile, is left lying on the floor.
But is he...? Many viewers have cast their suspicions that the video is a hoax, filmed only for a laugh. We can't help but notice the fantastic bit of advertising for Bournville too...
