Traditionally, the formal dance features a prom court of nominees for the Prom King and Prom Queen naming ceremony in which popular and well-liked students are elected to represent their classes. Prom attire includes gowns or formal prom dresses for girls and tuxedos or suits for boys. Dates often also wear matching corsages and boutonnière flower arrangements pinned to their chests or on their wrists (girls). Prom dates may be romantic sweethearts or platonic friends, and LGBT students may take same-sex prom dates. Groups of friends often travel together to and from the prom in stretched limousines rented for the evening. The actual event typically has a DJ or band playing music for students to dance to.
Sometimes, the big night also includes celebrity prom dates. Or even cardboard cutouts and inflatable prom dates. This is going to get weird.
Area Teen Scores Porn Star Prom Date
Nevermind that every girl who has ever been in a porn has been called a "star." Mike Stone, a senior at Tartan High School in Oakdale, MN, would take any naked girl he could get. In February 2012, Stone began bombarding singers, models, reality TV stars, Kardashians, Playboy Playmates, and porn "stars" to pop that big question: "Will you go to prom with me?" He reportedly asked more than 200 low-level celebrities, wooing them with such promises as:
i have dinner hotel and ill give u a massage to.How could you say no to that? His exhaustive efforts eventually paid off - kind of. Los Angeles-based adult film entertainer, 19 year-old Megan Piper agreed to be Stone's date, but unfortunately for the hopeful teen, his school said Piper's attendance would be "inconsistent with two school district policies." No word on whether he still gave her that massage.Source
Cardboard Tim Tebow Attends Iowa Prom
None of the boys at Kingsley-Pierson High School in Kingsley, Iowa, were good enough for senior Rachel Bird. She had her eyes set on just one date for the prom, Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow. When her Tweets to the New York Jets quarterback went unanswered, Bird took the matter into her own hands at Staples, who printed her a life-sized representation for just under $20. After the prom, Bird said:
He was a cheap date, and when I asked him to stand in a corner, he did. I don't think it even hurt his feelings.Source
Inflatable Prom Date Light on Her Feet
It was a scene straight out of one of those high school movies you saw before you really understood the jokes. High school senior Peter Barner's prom date was cooler, easier, and more flexible than most other girls. The blow-up doll kept quiet all night and let her date take the lead. Barner said:
Believe me, we had fun before, during, and after prom!Source
Justin Bieber Shows Up to Prom Stiff, in Tux
Heart throb dream date Justin Bieber was hard to reach for Kristin Schubert, a senior at Grand Valley High School in Parachute, CO. She tried to contact him through his record label to ask him to prom, but her pleas for him to accompany her to prom went ignored. Not to be deterred, Schubert obtained a life-sized cardboard of the Biebs dressed in a bowtie and black vest. The couple received a great deal of attention and applause as they joined the grand march at the prom and danced to Bieber Fever's new song, "Boyfriend."
