Last Saturday, Levi Bliss and Allison Barron, a couple from Nevada, got engaged. The couple had been together for more than two years when Levi decided to pop the big question, to which Allison happily agreed. But their proposal took a hilariously unexpected twist when Allison’s dad Jake popped up in the background holding up a sign telling his daughter to “Say No” as Levi got down on one knee. Jake had been waiting with the sign at the top of the hill, much to the surprise and delight of both Levi and Allison.
Fortunately, Jake’s masterful trolling was not the result of any actual ill feelings he harbored toward his future son-in-law. Quite the contrary. As Allison told Buzzfeed News, her father and her future husband are “very close,” and they’ve developed a real bond during her two-year relationship with Levi. In fact, Allison said that her dad pulling a prank like this shows just how much he sees Levi as a part of the family.
My dad had other ideas..
“This is really just my dad’s personality,” she said. “We have a very close family and so he’s made little jokes like this before.”
Thankfully, this incredible display of dad trolling was caught on camera. Allison uploaded the photos of her engagement, along with her dad’s sign, on her Twitter account with the caption “My dad had other ideas…” and they quickly went viral. They’ve been retweeted more 65,000 times in just five days and have received over 200,000 likes. Allison said she never expected the photos to go viral but is extremely happy that everybody is getting to see the best day of her life.
“You always see little things like this blow up on Twitter and now it’s me,” she told Buzzfeed. “It [has] also been one of the best days ever, so I really get to just keep reliving it!”
