HIALEAH, Fla. -- A drive-by marriage proposal resulted in a happy ending on the Palmetto Expressway Thursday afternoon.
Scott Saidel proposed to his girlfriend by displaying, 'Marle, would you marry me?' on a Mini Cooper billboard display beside the highway.
"I'm a huge car fan and I'm a huge Marle fan, so yeah I would say they're two of my big loves," Saidel said. "It's sort of a sign of what's to come because my life revolves around cars and I guess hers is going to also."
The Mini Cooper billboard usually displays snappy messages like, "Take the longcut" to promote the vehicle.
We’ve always ranked electronic signage slightly behind sky-writing and slightly ahead of singing telegrams in terms of classy engagement stories. We haven’t decided if the highway-side electronic sign proposal is classier than the sporting event electronic sign proposal. We’re leaning to the sporting event proposal, the crowd goes ape-shit and there’s always a chance for her to say no. That’s reality TV drama.
