How was your Valentine's Day? Probably better than this guy's. At least, that's what these passersby were thinking...

Posted on YouTube just before the day of love, this Valentine's Day proposal prank video -- in which a man asks his "girlfriend" to marry him whilst surrounded by a mass of strangers, only to have her turn and bolt -- has garnered nearly five million hits. Watching the priceless reactions of the various people on the spot is just... well, priceless.

Kudos to the video's actors (who are an actual couple); this might be one of the best prank videos we've seen in quite some time.
