If you're not going to stage an epic promposal asking your chosen someone to prom, what's the point of even going, right? In the race for the biggest, grandest, most romantic gesture, high school student Jacob Staudenmaier has recreated the opening scene from a little movie called La La Land. Which makes perfect sense, since the person he's asking to prom is Emma Stone.
Staudenmaier, who attends Arcadia High School in Phoenix, Arizona, posted the La La Land video he made (with the help of a bunch of other people) to Twitter, where it's been viewed over 70,000 times.
So did Emma Stone say yes? Or no? Or anything to Jacob Staudenmaier at all? Has she even seen the video? Speaking to USA Today, Staudenmaier said, “I haven’t heard anything specifically from her. I’ve heard a rumor and sort of a confirmed truth that her mom has seen it. I assume at some point it will get to her.”
Asked whether he had a backup plan, Staudenmaier told USA Today, “I have this girl that I know that says she’d love to go. Even if Emma says yes she said she would be completely fine with that.” So either way, he's all set.
