Emma Stone asked to prom in epic ‘La La Land’ inspired proposal

By: Hayley Bradbrook

Now this is how you do a prom proposal! Teenager Jacob Staudenmaier asked Emma Stone to prom by recreating the elaborate opening scene from her hit film La La Land.

The high school junior poured his heart out singing his own rendition of “Another Day of Sun,” one of the many beautiful songs featured on the movie’s soundtrack. Jacob starts the video explaining how long it took him to come up with lyrics to woo the Oscar-winning actress. “This song took so much time/ And I'm finding this real hard to rhyme/ It's fine, I'm fine."

The 17-year-old goes on to promise Emma a night to remember, one which include dancing and dining at the popular US restaurant chain Olive Garden.

The smitten student also points out his uncanny similarities to Canadian heartthrob Ryan Gosling. “People say I look like Ryan Gosling/ And maybe that's a bit far-fetched,” he sings, before admitting that while he might not be able to carry a tune like Ryan, he really, really wants to be Emma’s perfect prom date. "I know my voice ain't great," he continued. "But please be my prom date!"

Jacob promises Emma a “night to remember.”

The red-headed beauty has since responded to Jacob's extravagant gesture. In a sweet letter, the Birdman star thanked him for the lovely proposal. “Thanks for making the greatest proposal I’ve ever received. I can’t tell you what an honour that was and how much I smiled throughout that beautifully orchestrated video. I’m in London working, but I hope you have the best time at prom and I’m grateful you thought of me. Thank you and P.S., I do see Gosling around the eyes. Love, Emma.”
