Terrified girlfriend Alexandra thought she was just going out for a car ride with her boyfriend Vlad Lungu and was clearly not expecting the ‘police ambush’.
Vlad was driving the car and she was sitting in the passenger seat as they drove down the quiet street in his native city of Brasov in central Romania.
Three friends dressed as policemen and wearing balaclavas were waiting for them next to a fake white ‘police’ van. They stopped the car and announced that they were going to carry out a search.
Alexandra was then pulled out of the car and forced onto the tarmac. Her face was shoved against the ground and her chin can be seen pressed on the asphalt.
A ‘police officer’ shouts: "Do you know this man?! Do you know what he has got in the boot?!"
The girl looks confused and terrified and does not say a word. Finally, the policeman grabs her by the neck and takes her round the back of the car, presumably so that she can look inside the open boot.
But just next to the back of the car, Vlad is waiting on bended knee and ring in hand.
After realising that it was all an elaborately-planned wedding proposal, Alexandra takes a few moments to recover from her fright and looks close to tears.
After several seconds of laughter, Vlad eventually asks: "Will you marry me?" and Alexandra nods and quietly says: "Yes."
The entire scene was recorded by another friend and posted on social media where it got almost 1 million views in just a few days.
