Surrounded by red plastic chairs, a man in a KFC branch in South Africa bends down on one knee. The crowd around him claps and cheers as he slides a ring onto his partner’s left hand. The woman, who is seated alongside a portion of golden fries, wipes away tears of joy as she perhaps mentally ticks becoming engaged off her bucket list.
There began South Africa’s very own fast-food fairy tale.

A video of the KFC proposal was taken and shared to social media by a surprised observer, identified by KFC as Kateka Malobola. His impromptu recording has since been viewed over 1.4 million times on Twitter. On Thursday KFC publicly thanked Malobola for “capturing the beautiful moment” and sharing it with the world. Then it appealed for help finding the couple.
With a little help from two viral hashtags: #KFCProposal and #KFCWedding, the couple were soon identified as Bhut’ Hector and Nonhlanhla.
With almost 300,000 tweets about the happy incident, South Africans united in their efforts to give the newly engaged couple the best wedding ever. While some strangers offered to help design wedding invites, others said they would make traditional wedding outfits for the pair.
Ayyy congratulations to the lovely couple. I know you’re breathing easy. Wanna gift you guys two VIP tickets to the Africans Unite Concert on November 24 in South Africa. #AfricansUnite #KFCProposal #KFCWedding @KFCSA https://t.co/4sjTKDK5mp pic.twitter.com/cuyHL2Ahjq

A spreadsheet was even created to keep track of the Internet’s collective acts of kindness. On the list? Tents, sheep and formal shoes.

Then the brands got involved, offering free transportation, food and drink for the couple’s big day and their upcoming honeymoon.
“These honeymoon destinations look far. Someone needs to drive them there. We got you,” tweeted South Africa’s official Audi account.
“Just like your chicken and our Coke® are the perfect pair, and we’re all for bringing people together. The soft drinks for the wedding are on us!” tweeted Coca Cola South Africa.

Let’s do after the wedding. We’d like to sort out December clothes for their children, school uniform & stationery for the new year. We’d also love for them to get our VVIP Experience as part of the honey moon trip to Cape Town. #KFCProposal #KFCWEDDING #SeeYourvibe https://t.co/z6HTTC8De2
