I had a friend whose then-boyfriend began his proposal by making her think he was going to break up with her. She'd been crazy about him for years, they finally started dating and a year later, it was still clear to them both that she was much more into him than he was into her. So it was "funny."
Anyway, the way she told the story: He kept repeating, "I don't want to be your boyfriend anymore" until she finally accepted that he was really breaking up with her. As she cried hysterically, he stepped in with a loving "I want to be your HUSBAND." And she joyfully and tearfully accepted the proposal.
As she told me this story, beaming, it was all I could do not to show how disgusted I was. Happily, she eventually grew a sense of self-worth and divorced the guy. She now agrees with me that that proposal sort of epitomized everything that was so farked up about that relationship.


I call these kinds of things "Borat jokes" and I have never found them funny, and I don't how people do (especially if it's just you witnessing the "joke" between people you don't even know). Sure, maybe there's some warped people out there who think this stuff is funny--then go and play your jokes on each other and laugh your asses off. I don't think being humiliated, tricked, frightened, or scammed by someone who knows you is funny. Call me crazy.

The proposal isn't what makes him a douchebag. What makes him a douchebag is that he put that stupid video, complete with the annoyingly bland music, up on YouTube for all the world to see. Does he, and his bride to be, expect the internet to rise up and proclaim the greatness of this proposal, and by extension, this couple? If so, have either of these people ever even been on the internet?

The fact that they put this stupid shiat out there for the world to see proves that they're even dumber than his Wallyesque haircut.

SpiderQueenDemon: Every general-aviation pilot I've shown this to has shaken their heads and predicted the messiest and goriest of divorces.


I'm a pilot and I would never, ever have done something like this, when I was still flying. I appreciate that most people have never flown on small planes. I may have fooled around with another pilot on board, but with passengers, it was nice and easy and no surprises. I always let the passengers know what I was doing and what to expect.

That was great! She's obviously interested because she knows how to read a checklist- which suggests she's not an idiot and likes flying. She also didn't flip out and could work the problem, which suggest he knew she wasn't going to need therapy. It's also a pretty new $300K aircraft so these aren't your average reality show contestants.

It seemed to work for them, and that's all that matters.

Why is he a douche? Anyone have an argument that they can justify, other than 'he frightened her'.

You don't understand what a "Borat joke" is. The victims of a "Borat joke" have their idiocy exposed by the joke. The humour is in the fact that they don't realize their bigotry or prejudice is being exposed and that they can't grasp that Borat is an obvious farce.

This plane thing isn't funny or cute because she was an undeserving target and the 'joke' was too extreme.

That you equate the two is baffling. I'm calling you crazy.

Carth: MagSeven: So I take it that all of you calling him a douche and an asshole watched the video and are just going by his general appearance, right? Because the prank itself, wasn't bad or scary. They both were really calm and weren't panicked. It didn't look like he was trying to scare her, just have a reason to open the manual.

Are you a pilot? Do you know how terrifying it is when controls stop responding or pretty much anything isn't working like it should?


Not a pilot, but I have been a passenger in a very similar situation (no proposal). I'd say the girl in this video handled it much better than I did. But it looks like she never thought she was dying, just trying to resolve a problem. She didn't look panicked or really even mildly concerned until she saw the proposal.

"Can you get out the before-landing checklist and read it off to me?"

That seems like a much better "reason to open the manual" than "Uh, don't panic, but we're out of control and we'll probably crash -snicker-"

jaytkay: She should have kicked him in the balls, told him to shove the ring up his ass and filed a complaint with the FAA to get his pilot's license yanked.

/ I don't approve, in case that was not clear


Because you didn't watch the video.

Like Odd Bird pointed out it wasn't OMG!!!!!! Nose dive as the headline would suggest.

He calmly faked a mechanical issue, Then had her check the manual (where she found his proposal).

And headline is misleading subby. He didn't fake a crash, he faked the controls not working.
