In case you were not aware, "promposals" are thing now. Gone are the days of casually asking someone if they want to go to prom with you at their locker, and teens are now coming up with elaborate schemes to ask their dates out.

According to Buzzfeed, Marlen Williams, a high schooler from Texas, handmade this cute basketball-themed sign to ask out his date. Aw, that is so-- wait. WTF does it say?

"You'll run the I'll be 1 I'd love 2 to take a shot at prom #12 with you."

If you are just staring at the confusing sign like it is one of those optical illusion images that will reveal itself if you look long enough, you are not alone.

Twitter pretty much had a field day guessing what the sign is meant to say.

Someone tried to break up the sign to decode it, but Marlen confirmed that tweeter was incorrect.

Others edited the sign to "fix it."

But in the end, the girl ended up saying yes to this confusing promposal, so all's well that ends well, I guess.

What do you think the sign says?
