Following upon the heels of pioneers like Million Dollar Homepage and half a dozen other web appeals to help a fella get over thru our collective support, an enterprising groom-to-be, who will only identify himself as J.P., is attempting to recruit corporate sponsors for his planned marriage proposal as a $2.5 million Super Bowl ad.
The anonymous digital entrepreneur has set up a website to promote the effort - and the site itself has already raised about $74K toward the project. J.P. says he is donating all money raised to a children's hospital.
J.P.'s marriage-proposal-as-an-ad project has been pitched to marketers including diamond retailers and Las Vegas hotels. The stunt has thus far landed J.P. on five radio stations and "Inside Edition" is reportedly planning a mention of the project.
