Teenager Jacob Staudenmaier from Phoenix has collaborated with dozens of his classmates and teachers to create a 'prom-posal' video, inviting Emma Stone to be his prom date. The video consists of an elaborate La La Land parody with the opening song from the movie, for which Stone received an Oscar for 'Best Actress in a Leading Role'. It features a crowd pleasing dance number in a traffic-filled Los Angeles highway.
Staudenmaier mentions the fact that Stone grew up in Scottsdale, in the lyrics of his prom date request.
He said that asking Stone to attend prom with him began as a joke. He does have a backup date in case she doesn't see the video, or declines his date request.
