Within hours, the couple was identified by KFC as Hector and Nonhlanhla.

A video of the proposal was shared to Twitter, where it nearly immediately went viral. The couple were having lunch at KFC when the man chose to go on his knee and put a ring on it.

Inspired, no doubt, by a good old love story, South African social media users are rallying behind a couple after a video of their proposal at a KFC outlet went viral. They wrote: "We just could not resist all this Lovin".

"These honeymoon destinations look far. We got you", tweeted South Africa's official Audi account. "The soft drinks for the wedding are on us!" tweeted Coca Cola South Africa.

The couple also said that while they appreciated the support from everyone, they were, however, asking to be given a moment of privacy to "take it all in".

This one of many proposal videos that have surfaced on social media in recent times.

Other brands; Sun City Resort, Siwela Wines, Castle Lite, Tsogo Sun, Puma, and Huawei among others were joined by personalities such as DJ Fresh, Ami Faku, Precious the Planner, Zakes Bantwini and Donald who also pledged gifts and offered their talents to make the wedding day special.

His proposal, around a table complete of Kentucky Fried Chicken was captured and posted to social media.

The company has since confirmed that the search is over: "South Africa, you guys are awesome".

Aware that wedding planning can be somewhat stressful, Sony Movies took to Twitter on Friday to offer the couple movie tickets and popcorn to help them unwind.
