While skydiving with his girlfriend, firefighter Brandon Strohbehn was caught up in an emotional dilemma: Use the opportunity to propose marriage, or to pull a prank?

That’s when he realized – why not do both at the same time?

After jumping together from a height of 12,500 feet, Strohbehn surprised his girlfriend Nicole by pulling out a ring, and then surprised her again by dropping it mid-free fall. The proposal was ruined!

Fortunately, it was just a gag. The real ring was waiting on the ground below, along with the couple’s family and friends.

Nicole said yes, by the way, proving she has a healthy tolerance for this sort of joke. Hopefully the couple that pranks together, stays together.
