This man’s proposal to his girlfriend involved a helicopter, a football field, balloons, fireworks and a new car – taking things to a whole new level of OTT.

Kiwi fitness mogul and social media star Josef Rakich has set a new standard when it comes to organising the ‘perfect’ proposal for his girlfriend Mary Ammattii.

After organising a helicopter ride for his blindfolded partner, which landed in Eden Park in Auckland, New Zealand, he lead Mary to a giant pink box set up in the middle of the field.

Taking the blindfold off, Mary pulled on the ribbons and as the box fell apart to reveal a stream of pink balloons and a custom pink Range Rover.

But that’s not all: “Will you marry me?” was stamped across the pricey car’s windshield.
