Albany Man Proposes in Super Bowl Commercial
Did you catch the surprise proposal commercial during the Super Bowl? You may have missed it if you weren't in the Albany area.
Chris Garguilo proposed to his girlfriend Kourtney Myers after winning a contest at a local jewelry store. "I wasn't even going to enter the contest but changed my mind a few days later," says Chris.
Good thing he did because he won. Chris says he taped his proposal a few days before the Super Bowl and then had to plan a party for the big day. "They told me the ad was going to air at 7pm and it didn't come on until 8. That was the longest hour of my life."
When the commercial finally played Chris dropped to one knee. The look on Kourtney's face when Chris proposed wasn't just for TV. "I was absolutely surprised," says Kourtney. "I'm still in shock."
Kourtney and Chris have been together 5 years. "We met in college and have been together ever since."
The happy couple is looking at a 2018 Summer wedding. "The wedding is going to be easy compared to this," says Chris.
