Clever Guy Uses 'Share A Coke' Coca-Cola Bottles To Pop The Question

Call him a man in love, and he'd say you were right. Donnie McGilvray said "I asked my girlfriend, Eloise to put the milk away in the fridge and this is what she saw."

 

Coke bottle labels read; "Beautiful Eloise Will You Marry Me."

 

To top it off, below the bottles in the fridge was a bunch of red roses.

 

Donnie posted the fridge picture on  the Coca Cola Facebook page, adding: "Thanks Coca-Cola for all the help..........she said yes!!!"

 

By yesterday the 'likes' total was over  1.2 million. There were also more than 15,000 comments the vast majority (although not all) flattering.

 

Many comments suggested that Coke pay for their wedding.

 

A day after the proposal, Coca-Cola responded to the photo with an image congratulating the newly engaged couple.

 

BuzzFeed contacted Coca-Cola and McGilvray to confirm whether the image was deliberately manipulated or the labels were made especially for this proposal.

 

Coca-Cola confirmed that Donnie ordered the bottle labels using the personalized label page. Coca-Cola said "All of us at Coca-Cola would like to extend our

 

huge congratulations to Donnie and Eloise on their engagement. "We hope they share a very happy life together and will be sending them some special

 

congratulatory bottles to celebrate."
