Send an Instagram video to @pizzahut or tweet @pizzahut a Vine tagged #CommitToGreatness by Feb 21st describing their greatest proposal ideas.

Men and women alike have already started sharing their videos:

While this is a fun stunt, we hope brands getting onto online dating sites doesn’t become a new trend. It’s already hard enough to sort through the riff raff on OKCupid, amiright?
