In a crowded field of high-production Super Bowl messages, one man is hoping his "Will you marry me?" stands out -- if he can finagle a way into the game.It could be one of the more memorable Super Bowl spots if the hopeful groom, who goes by the nickname J.P. to protect his identity and not blow the surprise, can find an advertiser to sponsor him.

Web marketing

The idea of proposing to his girlfriend through an ad on the biggest TV event of the year came to J.P. during the summer, and since September, he's been chronicling his quest on MySuperProposal.com. Inspired by Alex Tew, the 21-year-old Brit who sold a million pixels on his home page for $1 each, and Kyle MacDonald, who successfully traded up one red paper clip until he had a house, J.P. thought he'd try to raise the $2 million-plus needed to buy ad time.

He's at only $100,000, so he's all but ditched that plan, instead trying to find a marketer who will put him in an ad. (He's donating any money he raises to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital in Nashville, Tenn., he said.)
