Yes, we found the CRAZIEST promposals EVER SEEN. Secretly, around America, THOUSANDS of high schoolers are, no, not studying. They are working on something much more important. The promposal. 

But, when did the concept start?  A few years back, (he said with extreme sarcasm) as I was getting ready to ask a girl to my prom in Worcester, (pronounced “Wista”) I would have never dreamed of involving: a $200 budget, others, multimedia, 300 balloons or infrastructure. Asking a girl, involved just seven simple words: Hey, want to go to the prom? That was the extent of the event. That is not the case, today.

The Rise Of The Promposal

Today, the promposal is a rite of passage for high-schoolers, seeking a moment of fame, that becomes their legacy, that lasts beyond their high school years.

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

Asking someone to prom is almost as old as prom itself. But as the act of asking grows more and more elaborate the phrase “asking someone to prom” is no longer sufficient. The portmanteau from prom and proposal is a fairly recent creation apparently only dating back to 2011. It’s a fun new word used to refer to the surprising ways people are asking dates to prom. 

What this article didn’t mention, was right around 2011, the beginning of the promposal, coincided with the beginning of social media. What good is a promposal, if you can’t show off your brilliance around the globe on the world wide web? By the way, why didn’t anyone tell us how ridiculous we looked, in my ruffled shirt, the CANE, and last but not least, the TOP HAT? Only one person can rock a top hat. That would be Slash, from Guns and Roses.

So, let’s take our journey to find the CRAZIEST promposals EVER SEEN!
