Man proposes to childhood sweetheart with fake music video in viral clip



A man proposed to his childhood sweetheart in epic fashion.

Sam Maccarone proposed to his girlfriend of 15 years years while pretending to shoot a music video for his cousin.

The couple met when they were just 10 years old and made their relationship last through high school and college and now they're based in Hoboken, New Jersey.

Sam pretended that his cousin needed help looking for a couple to star in his music video, when really the cameras were documenting the build up to the big moment where he popped the question in front of their friends and family.

"Little did she know, I had been setting up a surprise for her," he tells the camera before embarking on his proposal journey, which was shot around Philadelphia.

The clip has since amassed more than 2.5m hits on You Tube in recent days.
