Alexey Bykov’s fiancee sure can take a joke. He faked his own death and when she was weeping over his body, he jumped up to propose.

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, reports Orange News.


Alexey Bykov planned an elaborate hoax-death in a car-wreck to show fiancee Irena Kolokov what life would be without him.

"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.

Alexey wanted her to realize how "life would have no meaning" without him, according to The Sun.

As Irena sobbed, Alexey stood up and asked for her hand in marriage. But she didn't laugh at the hoax initially.


Alexey Bykov’s fiancee Irena Kolokov thought he was dead, and when he proposed, she said she almost killed him for real — before forgiving him and saying, ‘Yes.”

"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.


The happy couple, after all is forgiven, are engaged!
