Teen Asks Emma Stone To Prom With Epic “La La Land” Video
This "promposal" is going to be hard to top!
When it comes to “promposals,” epic is an understatement for the newest one to grace the internet.
Phoenix, Arizona, high school junior Jacob Staudenmaier recreated the opening scene of the film “La La Land” to ask one of the movie’s stars, Emma Stone, to prom. With the help of a lot of friends, he used his passion for filmmaking to create the musical invitation.
“I saw ‘La La Land’ and loved it a lot,” Staudenmaier told ABC News. “It was one of my favorite films and I’ve always liked Emma Stone as an actor and I guess that spawned the idea of maybe asking her to the prom.”
For the promposal, Staudenmaier rewrote the words to the song “Another Day of Sun,” changing the lyrics in an attempt to convince Stone that she should be his prom date. Here’s a snippet of what the clever teen came up with:
“Jacob Staudenmaier is my name/ Emma Stone if you came/ I think I’d lose it, Go insane/ We’ll have to see…I hope you’ll want to come on down/ I’ll see your face and think of how/ I got so lucky.”
