Most Aussie proposal imaginable at the Ashes

PEOPLE dream about popping, or being asked, the all important question in a truly romantic setting. Atop the Eiffel Tower or in a hansom cab ride around Central Park. This guy had other ideas.

During day two of the first Ashes Test at the Gabba, Michael Langridge and his girlfriend - now fiancee - Tori Roebuck were enjoying the cricket from the comfort of the pool deck.

Langridge decided the setting was an ideal time to bend the knee and pop the question in front of the thousands in attendance.

Wearing only a pair of green and gold budgie smugglers you do have to ask yourself, just where was he hiding the ring?

Of course, nothing screams Australian romance like being soaking wet in a pair of speedos at the cricket.

Thankfully for Langridge the answer was yes and he wasn't left hanging on the side of the pool.

Despite the happiness shared by the couple and the surrounding crowd, social media was its usual self and quickly tore the proposal apart.

All we know is attempting a proposal in front of a packed house at the Gabba, in those speedos as well, is a ballsy effort and we tip our cap to the brave man.
