Best boyfriend ever Nick Bastress proposed to his girlfriend on Sunday by filming a commercial that played during the US versus Portugal game.
Bastress wanted to shock his girlfriend, Nicole, with the proposal, so he created this 30-second clip and had it play during the high-profile soccer game. He enlisted the help of an advertising agency, which helped him develop ideas on storyboards.
Nick told ABC,
I work for Time Warner, helping companies share their stories through TV commercials. ‘I could throw this together,’ I thought.
The ad shows Nick promising Nicole that he’ll have dinner ready for her every night, clean the house and play with her cat, even though he admits he’s more of a dog person.
Nervous that his girlfriend would accidentally miss the proposal and run to the bathroom by mistake, Nick told Nicole that he was an extra in some commercial and he wanted her to see. When Nick’s proposal commercial finally came on, she was absolutely speechless. She didn’t even cry like lots of women do when the love of their life pops the big question.
She didn’t cry because she was so shocked. I mean this girl will cry at a 30-second Google commercial, but she was just too shocked.
Nicole can’t wait to see how Nick plans on keeping the house so clean.
