A video of the incident has gone viral on Instagram, showing a man proposing to his girlfriend in the middle of the street after staging a false gunpoint robbery. The footage begins with a red automobile approaching an intersection before a pedestrian and two men on motorcycles block its way. They demand that the couple sitting inside the car step out, while one of the men points what appears to be a concealed weapon at the woman. Two gang members then force the male to his knees, holding the woman in front of him. In a wild plot twist, the men stop shouting and the kneeling man takes out a ring to propose to his fiancée, eliciting applause. After discovering it’s a joke, the woman hits him repeatedly as he places the ring onto her finger. The couple then embraces and kisses to celebrate their engagement, as his accomplices cheer them on.
