Parokya ni Edgar frontman Chito Miranda has proposed to girlfriend Neri Naig and she said yes.
The proposal was quite elaborate, involving several people, a camera crew, makeup artists and even a pyrotechnics team.
The moment was documented on video and had since been uploaded on YouTube by Miranda himself.
Miranda directed fans to the site by tweeting, “This is how I proposed to my girlfriend,” and including a link to the video.
In the video, the singer is seen explaining his plan to the camera crew.
“Ito ang kuwento noon, okay? I came up with a story na kunwari may music video kami na iso-shoot for (the band) Typecast… It’s a front kumbaga, para hindi siya magtaka,” he said, noting there would be a camera set up, sound crew and a projector,
“Ang sinabi kong background niya…the back story of the video is naka-pang-farm siya, parang breezy na damit, naka-boots siya, parang farm girl, alam mo ‘yong parang naglalaro sa mga pelikula…mga fairy, ganoon na tipo. Maglalakad-lakad siya dito, tingin-tingin sa garden na maganda,” he narrated further.
As seen in the video, the proposal started with Naig being instructed to walk towards a projector that suddenly flashed the words: “Ako na siguro ang pinakamasuwerteng lalaki sa buong Cavite.”
Seemingly confused, Naig turned around to see Miranda walking towards her with a bouquet of flowers.
The two hugged and started crying.
On the projector were the words: “Dahil mapapangasawa ko na ‘yung pinakamagandang babae sa Eastwood…kung papayag siya?”
Miranda went down on one knee, kissed Neri’s hand, and opened the box with the ring and said, “Ayaw kong sabihin na I love you lang talaga. Will you marry me baby?”
Naig uttered a simple “yes” and fireworks were set off.
