Jake Bronstein began a whisper chain that successfully passed
through 59 people, a new world record. With his girlfriend Kristina Hoge
completely unaware of the plan, Bronstein sent the message “Kristina,
will you marry me?” around a roomful of strangers.
After the proposal
passed through 59 people, a random stranger whispered the message in the
ear of a completely shocked Hoge. She accepted onstage in front of a jubilant, tearful crowd.
Bronstein set the record on July 14, 2009 at a World Record
Appreciation Society event in New York City. Dan Rollman and CoreyHenderson were present to witness the feat.
