Dancing carrot proposes marriage in China

If your girlfriend’s favourite colour is orange and you want to propose, maybe dressing yourself and 48 friends as giant carrots is the best way to get her to say yes.

According to Chinese news reports and photos posted online, that is what one lovestruck Chinese man did recently for China’s Valentine’s Day in the centre of the eastern city of Qingdao.

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 peeled away his disguise and proposed. Shoppers shouted “marry him, marry him,” and she accepted.

The reports say the proposal took him three weeks to plan and cost 100,000 yuan ($15,000).
