Prom season is upon us, and one teen figured out how to summon a celebrity date in a pinch: Bring a cardboard cutout.
A girl named Dee found herself dateless to her junior prom last weekend after “procrastinating and waiting til the last minute,” so she got a little crafty. Armed with a printer, some cardboard, and a lot of patience, the high schooler was able to build her own life-sized cutout of Black Panther‘s Michael B. Jordan to accompany her to the dance. She chose a photo with a red carpet-ready pose, and honestly the pair’s outfits match well.
It looks like Dee had a friend assist her in carrying her cardboard Jordan across the parking lot, which is the true definition of friendship. And while the entire crafting process might have taken three hours, these pics are definitely worth it:
After not being able to get a prom date from procrastinating and waiting til the last minute, i spent 3 hours making my sexy prom date. I got on @TheShadeRoomm but now i need to MEET my man @michaelb4jordan @TheEllenShow pls help. RT FOR #GetDeetoMBJ pic.twitter.com/9y7Kt4MwsJ— Mrs. Chance & B. Jordan (@uhdeevuh) April 17, 2018
News outlets have started to pick the story up, and now Dee says her ultimate goal is to “MEET [her] man.” She even tagged the Ellen show and Jordan himself in her tweet.
Shoot your shot, Dee.
