Road Dispute Gone Sour Ends in Romantic Proposal (Video)

Though most Russian girls are into fairy tale romances, some men have different ideas about what it takes to make a woman go weak at the knees, a viral video has shown.

A YouTube video showing a Russian man's — slightly intimidating — interpretation of a marriage proposal has gathered more than 6 million views online since it was uploaded on Tuesday.

The video shows a gang of Russian motorcyclists getting ready to beat up a young driver in front of his girlfriend's eyes in what seems like a road dispute gone wrong.

Tensions run high as the driver repeatedly gets pushed onto the bonnet of the car, causing his girlfriend, who up until now remained in the driver's seat, to get out of the vehicle and bravely confront the assaulters.

Accompanied by a sudden change in soundtrack — from Rammstein's "Feuer Frei" to Robbie William's "She's The One" — events then take on a surprising turn...

Watch the video here:
