Ohioan uses TV commercial to propose to girlfriend

An Ohio man has used a TV commercial to make a pitch for marriage, delivering an on-air proposal to his girlfriend.

David Jones told Dee Horton to watch a midday newscast on Cleveland's WJW-TV because he said he was going to appear in an ad playing a superhero.

Horton and co-workers tuned in Thursday at a hair salon in suburban Medina (meh-DY'-nuh) but saw Jones in a message asking, "How about you and I show the world what true love is all about?" He pulled out a ring and proposed.

The TV stations had cameras in the salon as Jones popped out in person. The couple embraced as his bride-to-be said yes.

Jones works in video production and says he wanted to propose in a way they'd never forget.
