For many people, marriage proposals are a big deal. Some even spend thousands of dollars in order to stage a remarkable and memorable surprise in their bid to persuade their partners to say yes.
But if there is true love, the grandiose and the luxury of an expensive marriage proposal doesn’t matter. This fact is proven by a lovely couple from South Africa who got engaged in a Kentucky Fried Chicken store. With only around 20 people as witnesses when the soon-to-bride said yes to the soon-to-be groom, the moment was undeniably magical – even with the absence of all the theatrics.
Of course, other customers who were in the KFC store during that time took snapshots and videos of the wonderful moment. And as expected, it immediately went viral.
The story has been picked up by thousands of people who admired the deed, with many wishing the couple best wishes. So when a girl on Twitter decided to ruin the moment for mocking the proposal and calling them “low-class,” something even more wonderful happened.
KFC came in for the rescue! The popular fast-food chain offered to pay for the wedding of the couple. In the official Twitter account of KFC South Africa, the brand asked netizens for help to locate the couple because they have a “gift” for them.
“Mzansi, please help us find this beautiful couple, re batla ho ba blesser DM us any leads, there might be a Finger-Lickin’ Good surprise in it for you too. Batho ba Vaal re thuseng! We love love #KFCProposal,” they wrote.
