8 Stars Who Were Asked to Regular People’s Proms in the Most Hilar Ways
Somewhere in the middle of the school year, the excitement for prom season begins to die down and transforms into full-blown terror. Should you go? Should you just stay home? What should you wear? How are you going to get there? And, most importantly… who are you even going to go with?!
For some, this decision is super easy. If you’re one of the lucky ones who have a high school sweetheart (or a BFF you’ve agreed to go with years ago), it’s pretty much a no-brainer. But for most high school students, this is not the case at all, and they’re left with just one other option: Emma Stone. (Well, not exactly) Allow us to explain…
Over the past several years, there’s been an ongoing trend of superfans inviting their celeb crushes to prom. It’s actually kind of genius given the often-miraculous nature of the Interwebz. Plus, if you manage to ask in such a way that sets off a viral Internet super-storm, you may just get a response back from your celebrity soulmate (and maybe even score a date)! Here are some of your fave stars and the super creative and funny ways they were asked to prom by regular teens just like you:
The most recent viral "promposal" to hit the Twitter-verse in recent years was created by high school junior Jacob Staudenmeier of Phoenix, Arizona.
In just two days, Jacob's tweet, which features a video of him and his friends recreating the opening scene of La La Land, reached almost 20k retweets and over 40k likes. The video is pretty much spot-on, with Jacob and his classmates dancing and singing to his own original lyrics in the middle of a traffic jam in the school parking lot.
Sadly, Emma's unable to make it, but she called his stunt "the greatest proposal I've ever received."
"I can't tell you what an honor that was and how much I smiled throughout that beautifully orchestrated video," she wrote. "I'm in London working, but I hope you have the best time at prom and I'm grateful you thought of me."
