Twitter helps teen land prom date with porn star

Shares

In the 2004 comedy The Girl Next Door, Emile Hirsch plays a bored high school senior who unknowingly befriends an ex-porn star whom he brings to prom.

Hirsch’s character was the inspiration for 18-year-old Mike Stone, who has spent the last month tweeting at dozens of porn stars and rappers asking them to his own prom on May 12. He has found most of the women using Twitter’s suggested friends feature and has messaged the likes of former porn star Jenna Jameson and rapper Kreayshawn.

“I was just thinking of doing something new,” Stone told the Daily Dot with some apprehension. (Neither his parents nor his school are aware of his efforts.) “I was like, let’s try it out and see if it works. I just think they’re really cute and I wish I had one for a prom date.”

After more than 600 tweets, Stone has received at least one yes from porn star Megan Piper, who said she would attend as long as he paid to fly her from Los Angeles to Oakdale, Minn., for his prom at Tartan High School. Stone has admitted on Twitter to not having any money for such an expense and has been asking people to help him raise funds.

Before prowling Twitter for a date, Stone says he asked a slew of girls from his school but was turned down “because all the guys that I know are already going with them,” he said.

Stone was the subject of a top post on social news site Reddit over the weekend, propelling him to Internet fame. He collected more than 750 Twitter followers almost overnight, and some of his friends have taken to Twitter to support him.

“They just say try your best and hopefully someone will say yes. I think it’s kind of nice that I’m getting responses back. I was actually thanking people who are cheering me on and telling me to keep on with it. They keep telling me I’m a legend and a hero.”

If Stone is able to land a date via Twitter, or finds the funds to get Piper to Oakdale, he’s fairly certain she’ll be able to get into the prom without a problem, he said. But if something does come up, Stone has a plan.

“One of the teachers who works at my school is a security guard,” Stone said. “He was telling me, if I brought a girl from a different school or anything, he would help me out and let them in for free.”

At the top of Stone’s prom date wish list are adult film actresses Eva Angelina, Madelyn Marie, and Bree Olson, who rose to fame after actor Charlie Sheen made her one of his live-in girlfriends and “goddesses.”

Let’s hope this teen drama has a happy ending.
