The grand effort was all so Jacob Staudenmaier could ask Emma Stone, who took home the Best Actress Academy Award for her role in the musical, to his prom.

To make the video, Staudenmaier first tried to replicate the Los Angeles freeway gridlock from the film's first sequence in the parking lot of his school, Arcadia High School in Scottsdale.

"I saw La La Land and it was one of my favorite films of the year," he told Inside Edition. "When I found out that Emma Stone was from Arizona, I felt that it would hold more relevance to her and to me."

It should also be known that Staudenmaier resembles Stone’s La La Land co-star, Ryan Gosling, and even sings like him.

He got his fellow classmates to help out with the video as extras and film crew.

"Without everyone's help I wouldn't have been able to do it," he said.

The high school senior, who hopes to one day become a filmmaker, has not yet heard from Stone.
