9 Hilarious Jumbotron Proposal Fails

Jumbotron proposals

When it comes to staging an elaborate Jumbotron proposal, there is a high potential for something to go wrong. It’s not just that she could say no, which we can all agree would be a total nightmare made worse by thousands of people watching in the stadium or at home. But getting proposed to in a stadium packed with loud fans who are more interested in watching the game than the biggest moment of a couple’s lives and you’ve got a lot of room for failure.

It takes a whole lot of guts to stage a Jumbotron proposal, which in and of itself deserves some sort of acknowledgement. But truth be told, you have to be just a little bit crazy to propose for all the world to see. These guys found out the hard way that a game day proposal isn’t as easy as it looks. There are cheering fans who don’t know he’s gotten down on one knee and can’t get up. There are mascots who want to to steal his thunder, and the camera shot, on the Jumbotron. And, there’s the star athlete whose seeming disapproval of the proposal totally ruins the moment.

Naturally, it’s hilarious to watch. Trust us.
