Thanks to the internet, we've seen some really creative and tear-jerking marriage proposals. But sometimes things don't go as planned.

A proposal of a man on one knee, asking for his girlfriend's hand in marriage on a boat in the sea, went horrible wrong when his friend decided to throw the ring at him... and yep, you guessed it... it ended up in the water. 

"Are you stupid?!” someone is heard shouting on the clip.

Thankfully, another friend instantly jumped into the water in an attempt to retrieve it.

The video of the couple (identified as Miles Sueharto and Angelina Zalesova) went viral and received a number of comments, including some which drew the conclusion that the friend was jealous or that he had a crush on Angelina.
