Man dresses up as carrot, proposes to girlfriend

August 10, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
A man in China and 48 of his friends dressed up in giant carrot costumes to propose to his girlfriend.

They surrounded the woman at a shopping square in Gingdao. As bemused shoppers - and his girlfriend - looked on, the man spoke into a microphone inside his costume about their first date six months ago.

He then took off his carrot top, got down on one knee and proposed as the crowd yelled "marry him!" She accepted.

The proposal took three weeks to plan and cost about $15,000.
