The Kansas City Chiefs learned how to put a Super Bowl ring on it a couple years ago. Now one of their fans is set to do the same with a different kind of ring.
The Chiefs shared a video of Toby Kostner proposing to his girlfriend, Briana McAllister, with a ring pop shortly after announcing the selection of offensive lineman Trey Smith from Tennessee. She quickly nodded yes on stage from the NFL Draft festivities in Cleveland.
The ring pop is a nod to the Marvel movie “Deadpool” in which the titular actor played by Ryan Reynolds proposes to his girlfriend with a candy ring. The Chiefs fan referenced the proposal scene from “Deadpool.” McAllister and Kostner live in the Cleveland area, according to a Chiefs spokesperson, per a report from KSHB-Kansas City.
Reynolds responded to the video, making a joke that he though Kansas City was partial to Ant-Man. Paul Rudd, who is a Kansas City native, portrays Ant-Man in the Marvel movies.
“I thought everyone in KC was an Ant-Man fan. Congrats to the happy couple!” Reynolds said.
