The One With The Proposal.
At the moment, London’s Haggerston Park is hosting Comedy Central’s FriendsFest, “the ultimate celebration of the world’s greatest TV show.” There, people can meet cast members, and hang out at Monica and Chandler’s apartment, among other things.
When London-based Krunal Desai found out about the event, he knew that was the perfect place to pop the question to his long-term girlfriend, Radha Patel, who is obsessed with the sitcom. He says: “We both absolutely love ‘Friends’, and Radha can’t go to sleep without watching the show. We even had a short break in our relationship, leading people to call us the real life Ross and Rachel.”
The groom-to-be adds: “When I first saw the apartment, I actually thought that this would be the perfect place to be proposed to. Nothing could top this proposal, it was awesome.” He planned the entire thing with the help of the FriendsFest team, who kept the sets empty when the couple was visiting.
Desai got down on one knee, and his girlfriend of 11 years said yes, of course. The bride-to-be notes: “As Phoebe would say, he’s my lobster!”
Comedy Central UK posted a video of the happy moment, with the caption: “Oh. My. God. It’s a #FriendsFest proposal!”
