Manhattan, New York, United States / July 14, 2009
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.
