Coca-Cola Proposal Reminds Us Just How Sweet Love Can Be

Posted: Updated:

Frank O'Hara famously wrote a poem titled "Having A Coke With You" that perfectly captures how sweet love can be -- just like this marriage proposal.

Donnie McGilvray‎ proposed to his girlfriend using nothing but the new "Share a Coke" coke bottles. He then posted the proposal to Coca-Cola's Facebook page, explaining, "I asked my girlfriend, Eloise to put the milk away in the fridge and this is what she saw."

"The 'ice' was in the glass," McGilvray wrote. "Thanks Coca-Cola for all the help ... she said yes!!!" The Facebook post has so far garnered over 1.1 million shares.

Naturally, this is how Coca-Cola responded:

It's just like O'Hara wrote: "Having a Coke with you is even more fun than going to San Sebastian, Irún, Hendaye, Biarritz, Bayonne or being sick to my stomach on the Travesera de Gracia in Barcelona."
