California man disguises himself in a burka for proposal

This is the awkward moment that a boyfriend disguised himself in a burka for a prank marriage proposal that appeared to spectacularly backfire.

Brad Podray, from Los Angeles, convinced his artist girlfriend Hannah Sung that she was going to a job interview for a Saudi Arabian film company.

He turned up ‘in disguise as a conservative Muslim woman’ wearing a full burka – completely hiding his appearance – and pretended to be an actress named Neena.

Brad also hired an actor to play a filmmaker, who tells unwitting Hannah that she will need to spend 10 seconds observing ‘Neena’ before turning around and drawing her from memory.

The final time she rotates, it is not a Muslim woman facing her – but instead her boyfriend Brad holding a ring.

He asks her ‘will you marry me?’ and all she can manage is a surprised shriek.

But as Brad gets down on one knee and tells her that she ‘got tricked’, Hannah immediately gets her revenge.

Rather than accepting his proposal, she awkwardly rejects it leaving her boyfriend looking devastated in the lurch.

However she then reveals that her reaction was in fact also a prank and pulls out a wedding ring of her own.

In the end, the couple agree to marry each other after the bizarre joke war.

The video has now racked up thousands of views from across the globe after being uploaded online.
