Prom season is almost here, and promposal competition is running high, but we've got a strong contender for winner here. Davis Looney, a high school senior from Texas, asked his girlfriend Cameron to go to the prom with him using a green teapot, just like the one Jim Halpert gave to Pam Beesly in the second season of The Office.
For those of you who aren't familiar with the show, Jim and Pam are basically everyone's favorite TV couple (never mind that the show hasn't been on the air for a few years). In a secret Santa episode, Jim gives Pam a green teapot filled with some of their inside jokes, as well as a letter revealing his romantic feelings for her.
Speaking to BuzzFeed, Looney explained that both he and Cameron are big Office fans, and that the sweet relationship between Jim Halpert and Pam Beesly was their favorite part of the show. So, for his promposal, Looney dressed in a button down shirt and tie (Jim Halpert-style) and got a green teapot. Inside he placed a note reading, "Prom?" and gave it to Cameron.
Davis Looney told BuzzFeed,
Jim was always so creative and clever with his gifts to Pam. I was inspired by his gift to her in the ‘Christmas Party’ episode, and decided to do the same sort of thing with Cameron in the form of a promposal. She’s awesome — totally deserved it.
Judging from the picture in his tweet, Cameron was pretty happy.
And she wasn't the only happy one—Jenna Fischer (who played Pam Beesly on The Office) retweeted Looney's promposal tweet, along with the words, "Well done!"
