Teen asks Emma Stone to prom in 'La La Land'-inspired video

Share

There was no word as of Tuesday night as to whether he had received a response.

"I saw La La Land and it was one of my favorite films of the year", he told Inside Edition.

At press time, Staudenmaier's unique prom proposal has almost 6,000 likes and 3,000 retweets, with interview requests from major networks such as ABC and FOX pouring in by the dozens.

Studenmaier, 17, invited the actress to be his date to prom in the most charming way ever.

So he asked her to prom.

While Jacob isn't necessarily the best dancer (or singer, as he admits in the video), I still give him an A+ for effort, simply for having the guts to upload the video online for all to see. "I didn't want it to just be me standing with a prom sign".

Now that Emma Stone's won her very first Oscar for her role in La La Land, it might be time to set her sights on a new distinction: Prom Queen.

By the way, if she doesn't respond, or declines the invitation, Jacob has a backup prom plan.

Until then, we'll keep our fingers firmly crossed for you.

"People say I look like Ryan Gosling, and maybe that's a bit far-fetched", he sings. "I love watching anything and everything". But Staudenmaier and his friends shot the scene at a parking lot. Here's to hoping you make every other guy at your school jealous.
