(Orange) — A Russian man wanted to see if his girlfriend really did love him to death – so he faked his own demise in a bizarre proposal. Alexey Bykov, 30, from Omsk, hired a movie director, stuntmen, make-up artists, and even a script writer to stage a bogus car crash. He then arranged to meet girlfriend Irena Kolokov at the crash site so she would be convinced he was dead. “We’d arranged to meet at a certain place but when I arrived there were mangled cars everywhere, ambulances, smoke, and carnage,” said Miss Kolokov. “Then when I saw Alexy covered in blood lying in the road a paramedic told me he was dead and I just broke down in tears.”. But the supposedly ‘dead’ Mr Bykov then jumped to his feet and proposed to Irena still covered in fake blood. “I wanted her to realise how empty her life would be without me and how life would have no meaning without me.
I love Alexey’s whole game. Pretending you’re dead to show your girlfriend how empty and meaningless her life would be without you? And admitting that to the international news? Brilliant, cocky, awesome. All of it. But here’s where you messed up, Alexey. Of course your girlfriend is gonna cry right away. That’s a no-brainer. Ever heard of a long con bro? You gotta stay dead for months. Don’t just make her cry a few crocodile tears then pop up with a smile on your face. Watch your funeral from a vent to see what she says about you. Follow her around for a while to see just how long she cries for. Make sure she doesn’t start fucking your best friend. How else are you gonna know you can trust her? This is like faking your death before proposing to your girlfriend 101 stuff. Did you sleep through that?
