Minnesota teen seeks porn-star prom date

Shares

Mike Stone is a simple kid with a very special dream. He wants a porn star to go with him to his high-school prom. Any one will do. (Stone’s not very discerning.) His courtship plans: spam every porn star he can find on Twitter.

We stopped counting how many he’s tried to contact, but it’s easily in the hundreds. The hopeful high-schooler, who describes himself as “AWESOME” in his Twitter profile, has sent out about 600 Tweets in total. Most of them are date requests.

In a typical message, Stone wrote to Cherie DeVille: “may 12 is my high school prom and i want to ask u to be my date i have dinner and hotel and a personal massage.”

She said she was too old for him. (Stone has said he’s 18 in response to inquiries about his age.)

The daring teenager from Oakdale, Minnesota became the darling of Twitter Saturday thanks to a front-page post on social news site Reddit.

Some call him a hero, some a legend. Others are calling him a creep.

“Dump the bit about the hotel room and massage. You go from kid trying something cute to total creeper when you say that shit,” Twitter user Mike Roads wrote.

No one’s said yes. (“Absolutely not. totally inappropriate,” Dana DeArmond told him.)

One actress did show what can best be described as hesitant interest, however. “[I don’t know,] his school will think I'm a pedophile,” Gia Steel, a self-described “sexy freak” wrote.

“No they won't,” Mike replied.

He may not win over the likes of Steel with that kind of calm eloquence, but at this point it’s pretty much inevitable he’ll get that “yes”—what with the entire weight of the Internet behind him and all.

It’s also pretty much inevitable that his school will say “no,” as Steel anticipated. We’re expecting a nationwide Internet buzzkill first thing Monday morning.

Until then: Godspeed, Mike, as you forge forward on your mad porn-star spamming quest.
