The selfie that turned into a surprise marriage proposal

Cue the tears

We'll forever be suckers for surprise marriage proposals that go viral, and we see no shame in crying happy tears for total (engaged!) strangers. This proposal sees the concept of a selfie played out cleverly, as it perfectly captures the look of shock when that crucial question is popped.

Lisa May's boyfriend tricked her into posing for a smiley snap, and then came that famous old trick - oopsy! I've put it the camera on video mode. Little did she know that he was lining them up for the winning shot, and we love her wide-eyed look when she sees him get down on one knee (see above).

Then come the tears - for them AND us - because we're all big softies, really.

The video has already raked in over 2.5 million views, and we can't say we're surprised. It's an adorable reaction. Are there any surprise proposal videos that turned you into a snivelling mess? Let us know by tweeting us @ELLEuk
