When Nicole walked up to watch a street performer work his magic on a Las Vegas street, she had no idea that she was about to become the main act.
Nicole, some friends and her boyfriend James had flown in to Vegas from Germany for a vacation. But unbeknownst to Nicole, James had called up Rob Anderson, a YouTube-famous street magician, to help him propose to his girlfriend. Together, they came up with the elaborate plan of “randomly” stopping her on the street and asking her to take part in a magic trick. Brilliant, right?
Street performers are pretty common in Vegas so when Anderson approached Nicole, she obviously thought nothing of it. Her friends encouraged her to go along for the ride and she did — hook, line and sinker.
She was none the wiser when Anderson started to perform a ring trick, cleverly distracting her by asking her questions about her boyfriend, while James himself snuck up behind her.
The only clue he gave her as his assistant blind folded her was “on the count of three the blindfold will come off and you won’t believe your eyes.” Cue the drum roll.
Of course when the blindfold comes off, she’s blown away. There’s James and he’s holding on to a different ring — an engagement ring to be exact. Although she doesn’t notice at first.
Through teary eyes she said yes and needless to say, the two will be boarding their plane back to Germany no longer as boyfriend-girlfriend, but as an engaged couple. Now, isn’t that magical?
