Guy’s Promposal in a Pikachu Costume is So Cute It Sickens Me

Sometimes simply going up to someone and asking them out to prom isn’t extravagant enough, which is why this student chose to ask a girl out in public while wearing a massive Pikachu costume.

 

Jett Hwang, the high school student who posted the video and organized the “promposal,” surprised the girl he likes with the help of his friends who stood behind him during the surprise, holding up balloon letters spelling out the word “prom.”

Asking someone out in the most extra way is becoming a popular trend among high school students. Last year, a female senior student at Stillwater Area High School asked Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson out to prom in the most amazing way imaginable. Sadly, he couldn’t make the special event, but he did give her something that would make her the talk of her school for the rest of year: a rented out 232-seat theater just for her, her friends, and her family.
