Darth Vader helps metro Detroit couple get engaged at Motor City Comic Con

NOVI, Mich. (WXYZ) - A metro Detroit man at Motor City Comic Con got some help proposing to his girlfriend from the Sith Lord, Darth Vader, at Motor City Comic Con in Novi on Saturday.

Doug Thurau from Hazel Park had set up the surprise to propose to his girlfriend, Mari Kaskorkis, from Troy, because he said he needed to do something she wouldn't expect.

So, on Saturday afternoon at the Suburban Collection Showplace, Stormtroopers took Dough and Mari into custody with their hands behind their head.

Shortly after, Darth Vader showed up, forced him to get down on one knee, and that's when he pulled out the ring.

We're happy to report that Mari said yes! She also told us she did not see the proposal coming.
