Malaysian proposal video wins hearts worldwide


KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) -- After watching an emotional video of Malaysian Timothy Tiah propose to his girlfriend, "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest hailed it as a heartwarming coda to 2011. Singer Christina Perri confessed that it made her cry.

Celebrity endorsements have helped the creatively crafted clip rack up nearly 4 million views online within a week.

The video has turned Tiah and his now-fiancee into unexpected role models for numerous young romantics worldwide.

The 27-year-old Internet entrepreneur told The Associated Press this week that it was a surreal twist for him because he has long been allergic to the idea of marriage.

The video shows Tiah surprising his girlfriend at an Italian restaurant in Kuala Lumpur.
