All he wanted to do was share his big moment with as many eyeballs as possible. He was supposed to pop the question during the Super Bowl during a commercial, but when the spot was yanked, the guy behind settled for having the ad run tonight during the popular show "Veronica Mars", his dear one's favorite program.

"JP" explained it a little on his site yesterday before he popped the question:

At various times over the past month, I was anywhere from 99.99-100% certain this would happen. I flew out to a major advertiser's headquarters, toured around, met a huge team of very supportive folks, filmed a commercial and was all set to go when they pulled the plug at the last minute. There were even more advertisers who wanted to make this happen, but with the late date, we had almost no chance to get another ad filmed in time. I did end up making my own homemade version, which CBS said they might air independently (simply because they knew it had generated so much buzz). As late as Sunday morning, we had word that CBS might air it during or right after the game, but in the 2nd quarter, they called to say it was a "no."

After the jump watch the video of JP's girl watching the ad on tv last night, and see her reaction.
