A video emerged on social media showing a man proposing to his girlfriend in the fast food franchise.

The video has warmed many South African hearts, but others took a swipe at the proposal, with some calling South African men 'broke.'

The video was filmed by a bystander. KFC shared the video and asked Twitter users to help them trace the couple.
