A Russian man faked his own death in an unhinged marriage proposal stunt.
Alexey Bykov hired a filmmaker, makeup artists and stuntmen to create elaborate car-crash scene — fit for a film.
He planned to meet his girlfriend Irena Kolokov at the site. When she arrived, she saw him sprawled out on the ground covered in blood.
“When I arrived there were mangled cars everywhere, ambulances, smoke and carnage…a paramedic told me he was dead and I just broke down in tears,” Irena said.
“I was so cross,” she said. “I almost killed him again, but for real this time.”
But soon after, she said yes and posed for engagement photos with her fake blood-soaked fiancé.
