That Uke died in the line of duty...

I shed a single "manly" tear in silence.

Oh, snap! I just bought that uke on EBay. Ad said " gently used".

Look for my UU luthier's lounge thread later this week: how to remove skin and blood from a crack.

If unoriginal Mr. Cliche threw the book at me, I'd strike him down like a bad habit, too.

Been said before, but It's just some beater uke.

It's only been three months and he's already proposing? And in such a horrible way? He's obviously not paying attention to the look of dismay on her face.

I think I might have done the same thing except I would have spared the ukulele and reached for the guitar.

I just like the look on the guitar player after she decks him.

"Uh.. so am I supposed to keep playing?"

Perhaps more importantly, what kind of strings are on it?

When I saw the short clip, I felt sorry for the guy and figured the woman was a jerk. It pays to get "the rest of the story" though, because while watching the whole clip, I was trying to reach in the monitor and beat her to it.

The train should have run into him, would have saved a uke from a disastrous fate, and the guy probably would have gotten a Darwin award. What a stupid way to propose.

Ha! Exactly my thought. That was too perfect.

Was it all staged? The train, with its saying. Not one person rushed to help him, not even the camerawoman.

It's typical when something happens for a camera person to brief "look away" with the camera, which is a human instinct. It happens in most unstaged fail videos. Here, no one aided him in much time after the hit.

The musician didn't even pick up his uke. When his uke hit the ground, it made a sound slightly, but also sort of bounced. Even the tacky conversation and lead up...who speaks like that?

My guess: Oscar nomination.

According to the Daily Mail, it is indeed a "staged" advertisment: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2403163/Disastrous-marriage-proposal-actually-advert-Cadbury-Bournville-chocolate.html

I figured it was staged, I don't know any uke player that would have let a stranger just grab their uke from them so easily.

Some things just appears staged.

Other things do not:
