A woman has shared a video from an unwelcome admirer who sent her a photo montage featuring her own selfies and a snap of him in a Cookie Monster costume.
The male calls Emma Miller his ‘cutest princess’ as computer-generated petals cascade down the screen to a backing track of Patrick Swayze’s ‘She’s Like The Wind’.
The young woman, from Kilwinning, North Ayrshire, tweeted the tribute, writing: ‘Av had many admirers but never had anything like this sent tae me.’
The video has now been viewed nearly 300,000 times and has attracted hundreds of comments from those who found it hilarious, with one person suggesting the sender was a ‘comedy genius’.

Police Scotland advises that users of social media consider picking user names that don’t reveal their actual identity, date of birth or where they live.
Officers recommend setting profiles to private so that only friends can see what’s on the profile.
This limits the likelihood of strangers getting in touch. Users are also advised to limit the amount of personal information revealed online.

The man in that case described Ciara Welsh, from Glasgow, as a ‘piece of meat’ before admitting that he was being ‘creepy.’
She recorded the voice messages sent to her on Facebook and uploaded them to Twitter where it racked up more than 400,000 views.
