In terms of failed proposals, this one is pretty much an exemplary example of everything no to do.

Here's the setup. Daniel propped signs up along the road away from his girlfriend Alex's house to read "Alex. Will. You. Marry. LOL Jk. Go To. Prom. With Me." after which he would hand her the final sign which was a "?". Except that Alex missed the first sign, and then saw the rest of the signs and thought they were the worst thing ever.

And believe it or not, things then got worse.

This is painful and brilliant all in one.
