One of the best and most memorable moments of high school for many was prom — the formal dance that ended the school year with a grandiose bang. Second to the night itself was definitely the actual prom proposal. Some of us went dutch with a gal pal, some of us rebelled and skipped out on the function, and some of us went the traditional route with a simple, “Want to go to prom?” from a guy friend or boyfriend.
But deep down inside, it’s safe to say we all dreamed of a picture-perfect movie-inspired proposal from the hottest guy in school that never came to fruition. However, that was then and this is now, and this younger generation has taken prom proposals to the next level.
One young man went above and beyond this spring to make sure he had a certain girl by his side at prom this year. This high school student, who goes by the Twitter handle @Global_Greg, called on the entire student body to release banners that spelled out the word prom as Beyonce’s “1+1″ played and he emerged from a box with a bouquet of flowers.
Determined for a response of yes, Greg confidently stressed down a red carpet to a curly-haired young lady who was clearly stunned by his gesture. Once he reached her, he got down on one knee and asked her to be his date. Smiling, the young lady said yes, and the two hugged and kissed as all the students clapped and cheered.
Press play and watch the viral prom proposal that has everyone teary-eyed and reliving high school moments.
