We Knew It Was A Hoax!! Called It!

| Filed under: Tech Talk

Awwww! This is kind of disappointing! But expected!

A little while back we posted this charming little video of a man proposing to his girlfriend (above) using a variety of synchronized iPhones and a MacBook Pro, and even then we speculated about its authenticity!

Today, however, it's been confirmed that the clip is a hoax, and was made to promote Thinkmodo, a business venture specializing in discovering the marketing potential of viral videos!

Thinkmodo founder Michael Krivicka reveals:

“Since viral videos are both art and science, we wanted to merge both elements to introduce predictability to the videos’ success. As part of our ’study’ we staged an elaborate marriage proposal in Central Park and fused tech and romance to see how well each would be received if merged. Would men be drawn by the awesome iPhone app (which unfortunately doesn’t exist) or would women cry and wonder why Frank threw the ring (which was never in the box)? Since our video was covered by outlets like Glamour as well as CNET, we learned that, contrary to conventional wisdom, content can be made to appeal to both sexes without lessening the appeal to each.”

Inneresting!

But we have to admit, we doubt that anyone really took it seriously!

A lot of factors didn't add up at the end! But at the end of the day, it was still cute and romantic!

What do U think?? Did U think it the video was legit?

    What was elaborate about this? A band (a crappy one) came and played one song and he threw a ring….seems simple to me.

    i didnt watch the video yet, but everytime these ipads iphones and such show people doing "cool" things with their phones, such as making it look like they are drinking a beer from it or something wacky like that, i always think, do people actually do this??? seriously……….

    ONLY A MORON (LIKE YOU WERE) THOUGHT FOR A SPLIT SECOND THAT THIS THING HAD ANY SEMBLANCE OF REALITY. YOU THOUGHT IT WAS REAL AND JUST ABOUT EVERY COMMENTER ON THE POST THOUGHT IT WAS ONE HUGE CROCK OF MADE UP SHIT. AND IT WAS.

  10. 10

    never thought it was real…. it was super cheesy and fake from the beginning.



  11. 11

    Maybe you should fact check or you know, not post things before seeing if they are real or not. What a concept right?



  12. 12
