Nov. 3 (UPI) -- A British man proposed to his girlfriend by taking her to a movie theater where he had secretly arranged for his proposal video to be shown before Thor: Ragnarok.

Craig Tampin said he took his pregnant girlfriend of three years, Danielle Shaw, to a movie theater in Newcastle, England, on Nov. 1 to take in a screening of Marvel's latest super hero film.


A video recorded inside the theater shows the crowd reacting with surprise when one of the trailers shown before the film turns out to be a video of Tampin.

The recorded message features Tampin proposing to Shaw, first in her native Welsh and then in English.

Tampin said Shaw accepted the proposal.

"I think it went better than I could have hoped," he said. "I was getting more and more nervous as the time approached though. I was thinking; 'Why have I done this?' I don't really get nervous but that is the worst I have ever been. But it was more perfect than I could have imagined."
