Promposals have gotten pretty elaborate, but not all of them go smoothly—and that’s totally OK. Daniel Pena takes us along with him in his car for what he thinks is going to be a cute and typical prom proposal…but things take a turn for the unexpected super quickly.

The car ride begins normally. It’s casual, a little awkward, pretty much your average high school date. We watch Daniel and his date-to-be turn the car around and head out for what she thinks is an informal get-together. But then, when he points out the signs along the road (they spell out “Alex. Will. You. Marry. LOL Jk. Go To. Prom. With Me.”) she doesn’t react at all the way he thought she would.

Is it weird that I think it’s cuter that it happened this way? You can see how much they really care for each other, even if it’s not picture perfect. After the camera cuts, they’re together, holding coffee having clearly worked out the snafu. She said yes–of course. Let’s hope the actual date goes a little more smoothly!
