(Video) A Kid Asks a Girl to Prom in Front of 2,000 People, and Gets Shot Down

A high school senior in New Jersey named Patrick Smith asked a girl to prom in front of 2,000 people at some sort of pep rally in April. And now the video of it that his friend posted is going viral, because she REJECTED him.

He was holding a microphone, and when she said she already had a date, the whole crowd reacted. Luckily they’re still friends, and he found another date. Apparently getting shot down didn’t turn him off of the whole elaborate prom-posal thing though.

He asked the other girl by showing up to her house with a giant sign.
