Teen Rents a Helicopter In Latest Extravagant Promposal
Over-the-top “promposals” are the latest trend among high school students issuing invitations to the big night.
Brent Rivera, who at age 18 has his own YouTube channel with eight million followers, whisked away his date on a helicopter ride.
Flying high, Rivera pointed down below to show dozens of people holding umbrellas forming the all-important question: “Prom?”
“Oh my God, yes, I will go to prom with you!” exclaimed his date.
“There's a lot of pressure with promposals, especially these days. I knew I wanted to do something with a helicopter. I didn’t know it was going to turn out that good,” said Rivera.
In another outrageous promposal, a drone helps capture a moment straight out of The Bachelor.
“Will you accept this rose and go to prom with me?” a teenage Texas boy asked a girl.
She said yes. “I was very excited, very surprised,” she said.
In Chicago, a high school dance troupe helped a teen with his spectacular promposal in a packed gym. His would-be-date to the prom was brought to tears before saying yes.
“I was so overwhelmed . It was beautiful. I loved it,” she said.
“I was nervous. My heart was racing,” he said.
Even some former presidential hopefuls rode the promposal wave.
"Hey Nico, it would be 'kay-sick' if you would go to the prom with Julia,” John Kasich said in one video.
In another, Ted Cruz helped out a boy with his proposal. “Sarah Beaver, would you Cruz to prom with Alex Canney?”
