A Phoenix-area teen is asking actress Emma Stone to be his prom date with an elaborate La La Land parody video.
Arcadia High School student Jacob Staudenmaier filmed his so-called “prom-posal” in the style of the opening song from Stone’s Oscar-winning film, which features a dance number on a traffic-filled Los Angeles highway. He enlisted dozens of classmates and a few teachers to help with the video.
Stone grew up in Scottsdale, Ariz., a fact Staudenmaier mentions in the lyrics of his prom request.
Staudenmaier says asking Stone to prom started out as a joke. He says he has a backup date in case the actress doesn’t see his video.
