Have you been wondering who the mystery guy was behind plans to pop the question to his girlfriend during a SuperBowl commercial last Sunday? Now you know – search marketer Rand Fishkin.
Rand’s plans for the SuperBowl announcement didn’t happen, so it was backup plan time — a commercial during one of her favorite shows last night, Veronica Mars. And yeah, he got a yes :)
You can see Rand’s proposal on video here:
Geraldine’s incredibly surprised (and somewhat hyperventilated reaction) is video here:
How Rand’s kept her from figuring it out all this time is amazing. Rand answers some questions about the entire proposal plans here, including how the original plan to have a commercial during the SuperBowl almost happened to the point of filming a commercial, until the advertiser plugged the plug at the last minute. The Seattle PI has a great rundown on the story here.
