Rand Fishkin’s Belated SuperBowl Proposal Gets A Yes
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 :)

Geraldine’s incredibly surprised (and somewhat hyperventilated
reaction) is video here:
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.
