IN what has to be one of the most original marriage proposals ever, a man in Murcia was filmed emerging from a coffin, dressed as Darth Vader, and singing an Elvis song to his would-be fiancée. 

The bizarre footage, which quickly went viral on social media, included a moment when the man, who had been carried into the scene in the coffin by four other men, held up a chalkboard on which was written in Spanish: “I hope she says no”. 

The soundtrack to the whole scene was provided by a full band, who played, among other tunes, the “Imperial March” from the Star Wars saga.
