An American teenager has attempted to invite Hollywood megastar Emma Stone to his school prom by re-creating in detail the opening sequence to La La Land.

17 year old Jacob Staudenmaier re-wrote the words to the movie’s song ‘Another Day of Sun’, and persuaded some of his schoolmates to assist him in trying to persuade the Oscar-winning actress to be his date at his prom.

An aspiring filmmaker himself, he directed and choreographed the two-minute sequence that has since been re-tweeted nearly 2,000 times and generated even more likes since the video surfaced earlier this week.

It sees Staudenmaier jump out of a car dressed in a tuxedo in his (and Stone’s) hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona in order to recreate the iconic ‘freeway’ scene that kicks off La La Land.

He then sings “Maybe I could buy you dinner it’ll make my night and maybe make yours to. Emma Stone if you came I think I’d go insane.”

He then shared it on Twitter on Tuesday (April 4th), captioning it: “I’M ASKING EMMA STONE TO PROM, and decided to recreate the opening scene from La La Land @RyanGosling @LaLaLand @johnjayandrich #prom.”

Interviewed by USA Today the following day when the clip started generating widespread attention, Staudenmaier said: “It’s going better than expected. It started with the kind of crazy idea of saying, ‘Yeah, maybe I’ll go with Emma Stone to the prom’. I decided if I was going to do this, I really needed to do it big.”

“I haven’t heard anything specifically from her,” he said when asked if he knew whether Stone had actually seen it or not. “I’ve heard a rumour and sort of a confirmed truth that her mum has seen it. I assume at some point it will get to her.”

Staudenmaier said, if he gets a response from Stone, he will “handle it on the fly,” and “just roll with it and go with the flow.” Er, yeah right mate.
