Trying to pull off a grand romantic gesture in front of a crowd of strangers is risky business – as this unfortunate man is only too aware.
The unnamed man was filmed proposing to his apparent girlfriend in the middle of a food court in Brazil, as a violinist serenaded her.
But he did not get the reaction he hoped for – with the woman shaking her head at him before walking away.
The video begins with the violinist walking towards her while playing a romantic melody.
The suitor then appears with a large bouquet, as well as what appears to be a wedding ring.
He then gets down on one knee, as the violinist continues to play in the background.
Seemingly unimpressed by the stunt, the woman appears to say something angrily to the man before storming out of the food hall, with her friend going after her.
The violinist, apparently unsure as to what to do, carries on playing as other customers in the food court sympathetically break out into a round of applause.
A member of the public tries to comfort the man before he leaves the food court.
