Guy Fakes His Own Death to Make Girlfriend See Life Would Be Empty without Him

In what may very well be the worst wedding proposal in history, a Russian man hired a whole film crew to stage a deadly car crash and see if the woman he wanted to marry really loved him to death.

Most people already know, or at least think they know the person they want to marry truly loves them, before they pop the big question, but 30-year-old Alexey Bykov, from Omsk, Russia, wanted to make absolutely sure. Instead of taking the easy route, like making his girlfriend Irina take a lie detector test, he decided to fake his own gruesome death to see what her reaction would be. So the young Russian hired a movie director, stuntmen, make-up artists, and even a script writer to stage a car crash in which he lost his life. They made sure everything looked as realistic as possible, by using crashed cars, smoke, ambulances and carnage, so the poor girl didn’t for a minute think she was the victim of a very creepy prank.

Once all the details of his plan were discussed with the film crew, Alexey arranged to meat Irina in a certain place, only when she arrived she found mangled cars and her beloved’s body lying on the road all covered in blood. A paramedic told her he was dead and she immediately broke into tears. Once the “romantic” prankster got the reaction he was waiting for, he got up from the pavement and proposed. You can imagine Irina’s reaction, can’t you? Well, although she admits at first she “almost killed him again, but for real this time”, in the end she accepted to be this crazy man’s wife for the rest of her life.


Asked why he planned such a macabre wedding proposal, Alexey Bykov said: “I wanted her to realise how empty her life would be without me and how life would have no meaning without me.” Very romantic stuff, I must say. He did promise this was the last time he pulled such a stunt.

    This guy is a nut case. If i were her, i wouldn’t even think of marrying him. What if his future wife had some sort of heart failure? Would he be sure then that she loved him? this guy has a low self esteem to require all this assurance.

    I agree with the previous commenter… This was way too weird and messed up. She should have ran as he has issues; this was not romantic at all. To remember this she will remember he faked his own death and when I realized he wasn’t dead I said yes lol
