A woman who discovered an engagement ring inside her boyfriend’s Crispy Chicken Deluxe sandwich from McDonald’s turned down the offer of marriage, incredulously telling him between tears and gasps of laughter, “You can’t ask me to marry you with a chicken sandwich.”
On his own YouTube channel, Michael Joseph explained why he did it. “She joked for months about how 10 years down the road I would probably propose to her in a chicken nugget box, so I thought she would love when I surprised her this way.”
When the moment finally came, however, his girlfriend of two years was more shocked than impressed.
“This isn’t a joke,” she says, moments after he slipped the ring onto the wrong hand. “I know everything is a joke with you, but this isn’t a joke… You just asked me on a bun?”
In an interview with radio station 93.9 MY FM, Michael admitted that his setup had been a “doofus move” and that they would remain a couple, hopefully with a better proposal in their future.
