Want $10,000 worth of jewelry? If you’re engaged (or even if you’re not, shhh, I won’t tell), Ross*Simons, an internet jewelry retailer headquartered in Rhode Island, is holding a contest geared toward future brides and grooms whose proposals didn’t quite go as planned. They are looking for funny, insightful, serious, awkward, poignant, and, above all, entertaining home videos in which newly engaged couples re-enact their “Proposals Gone Wrong.” Couples can also send in their actual proposal videos!
This contest is dedicated to the brave souls who have seen the abyss of a botched proposal and lived to tell the tale, even to laugh about it. Take a look at the current entries to see just how rough the going can get. And if you think you can top them (or bottom them, we suppose,) enter your own video. Our team of judges will review the entries, and if they think yours is the ultimate proposal gone awry, you could win a $10,000 shopping spree at Ross*Simons.
Below is one of their example videos…though I do hope that the videos real future brides and grooms send in won’t be as utterly depressing…
If any of you folks enter the contest, let me know!
