A teen brought a cutout of Michael B. Jordan to prom as her date
There's nothing wrong with going to prom solo, but high schoolers will go to impressive lengths so that they don't have to go it alone.
When high school senior Audeva Agyeman couldn't find a date to her high school prom, she took matters into her own hands. Agyeman, who attends St. Hubert's Catholic High School for Girls in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, made her own dream date by creating a life-size cutout of her celebrity crush, Michael B. Jordan — and the pictures of the dream couple are truly amazing.
"I asked my friend Tyler, but he couldn't come because of college stuff," she told INSIDER. "My other friend Dillon was going with someone else, and everyone else said no because 'Why would I go to an all-girl school prom?'" Agyeman said that she was inspired to bring the cutout to her prom after previously made a life-size cutout of Zendaya for a friend.
Once she got the idea, Agyeman had a hard time narrowing down what celebrity she wanted to bring as her date.
"My options were Chance the Rapper or Michael B. Jordan because both are FINE," Agyeman, whose Twitter display name is Mrs. Chance & B. Jordan, said. "I think the main reason I opted for Michael is because of his recent rise up because of 'Black Panther.'"
So how did it go over? "It was great," she said of her prom night. "People interacted with him like he was real and asked about his movies. And so many people asked for pictures."
People online were obsessed with her date, too. Pictures of Agyeman and the cutout of Jordan have been retweeted more than 3,000 times. And her creative date made it to The Shade Room— where Jordan himself applauded the teen's efAnd although Jordan was a backup choice for Agyeman, it seems like she got the prom of her dreams after all. "It's all really exciting and unexpected," she said. "I fell and cried in school when he replied [on The Shade Room]. I wanna go on 'Ellen' and meet him." forts.
