Social media has revolutionized how we communicate. We can speak with friends and family across the country or around the world through a keyboard. Rather than communicate a life event through mail or over the phone, we can instantly share the news with our friends and family with the click of a button.
It’s hard to escape an engagement or pregnancy announcement while scrolling through Facebook or Instagram. It can be exciting to share such a major life event in the matter of an instant, and your self-confidence will soar as the “likes” and comments start to pile up. One Facebook user took this social media attention to the next level, and it’s hilarious.
Zach was excited to propose to his girlfriend Somaly, and he couldn’t wait to share the news with the rest of the world. He took to Facebook and posted a picture with Somaly sporting her new, sparkly engagement ring. Zach wasn’t expecting the amount of attention and support he would receive for sharing this special news. He decided to test his luck and garner more internet fame the best way he knew how.
Zach decided to propose to a second girl to gather more likes on Facebook. He claimed that “so many of you liked my post that I went ahead and got engaged a second time!” He wasn’t quite done yet though, and he was ready to kick things up a notch.
Zach’s hilarious scheme didn’t end at a mere two engagements. He decided to capture his next three engagements for the world to see, proving that he isn’t scared of commitment, even in multiples. Somaly’s reaction is not so enthusiastic, as you can tell from the background of all of Zach’s random engagement photos.
Somaly’s facial expressions are priceless. She goes from emotionally distraught to a menacing blank stare, and at one point she just looks like she has had enough. The internet can’t get enough of this couple’s adorable humor. Although Zach is definitely after the likes, Somaly is a good sport throughout this entire stunt.
Zach and Somaly are couple goals through and through, and we can’t thank them enough for making a spectacle of our need for self-gratification through social media attention. In the age of information traveling at the speed of light, it’s a good idea to slow down and have some fun once in awhile.
Social media posts that portray lavish engagement photo shoots as well as ridiculous and sometimes dangerous proposals make it hard to really think outside the box when it comes to creativity. We can all take a lesson from Zach and Somaly and simply lighten up from time to time. Proposing to multiple strangers might be a stretch, but it’s never too late to pursue social media stardom. Just ask Zach and Somaly, who know how to gather a ton of attention — but it’s all out of love.
