A wedding proposal is one of the most memorable moments for any couple but there are proposals that go wrong — and some could lead to dangerous situations.
Just like this couple has experienced — when an uninvited guest interrupted the boyfriend’s romantic proposal on a safari, his future wife ends up in a neck brace because some non-compliant giraffe tries to decapitate a woman.
Bride-to-be Montserrat Cox was smiling from ear to ear as they are feeding giraffes on a safari when her boyfriend got down on one knee to pop the big question in a romantic setting, as she gleefully accepted and placed the engagement ring on her finger one of the giraffes the two had been feeding nudged Cox’s elbow and proceeds to give Cox a headbutt that wiped her out.
A video that Montserrat Cox published on TikTok on Wednesday, with a clip aptly played out to the TikTok favorite 1964 track Remember (Walking In The Sand) where people use the “Oh No!” part as sound when posting something that goes wrong.
The video has been viewed online over 2 million times. It’s entertained millions online with the giraffe’s hilarious timing.
Following a smacked down by the giraffe, Cox was left in a neck brace for days after but still feels it was “the best proposal ever.”
“Had to wear a neck brace for the next few days,” she detailed in the caption.
However, Cox claimed that even though her neck hurt for a few days, she was “so happy [she] didn’t notice,” indicating that it didn’t have much of an effect.
“It’s not a sign of anything,” she declared in a comment. “We have been very happy together for seven years. The giraffe was just being a giraffe.”
In a behavior known as “necking,” male giraffes have been observed swinging their heads violently in an effort to assert their authority and, as a result, increase the likelihood of mating.
