Between their Snapchatting, Nae Nae-ing and dabbing, the youths of today are plotting elaborate public stunts to ask one another to the prom. Involving animals, flashmobs, and various forms of choreography, these kids put more effort (and money) into their "promposals" than they ultimately will with their marriage proposals, mostly because they've already achieved their moment of viral fame. Here are some of the most over-the-top promposals that were probably a bigger deal than prom night itself.

1. The Chuck Norris cameo. 

So Chuck Norris helped a girl at my school ask someone to prom...
His tears cure cancer. Too bad he's never cried.

A picture of Harrison Ford would have been easier.
