Detroit Lakes, MN (WDAY TV) -- If getting down on one knee isn't nerve-wracking enough, imagine a proposal that everyone in town can see. In Detroit Lakes this weekend, a man asked for his girlfriend's hand in marriage on a billboard along Highway 10.

When it's time to pop the question, you have to do it right. So, Colin Buschette decided to propose to his girlfriend, Brittany in a BIG way!

Colin: "I did not want it have it up early at all, in case one of her friends saw it and called her, like, 'hey, I saw the sign,' or something."

His brother-in-law works for a billboard company, and his family put this sign up Saturday morning on the East end of town.

Colin and Brittany went for a drive.

Colin: "We were driving down the highway, and we stopped. She was just wondering what we stopped for and I pointed to the sign."

Brittany: "So, I looked up, and there it was. I just sat there and screamed for five minutes. Then he was like, "Well..?" and I was like, "Well, duh, YES!"

A little addition to the billboard, and it was official.

Brittany says she's surprised Colin went with such a public way of proposing.

Brittany: "We went out with some friends last night, and they were like oh my God, it's the billboard couple!"

Their billboard will stay up for about a week, sharing their big news with everyone that passes by. Colin and Brittany both live in St. Cloud. He is originally from Detroit Lakes.
