17-Year-Old Asks Emma Stone To Prom

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. It's prom season, and one student in Arizona is going to great lengths to convince the girl of his dreams to be his date. Seventeen-year-old Jacob Staudenmaier re-created the opening scene from the movie "La La Land" and used the song to ask the actress Emma Stone to prom.

JACOB STAUDENMAIER: (Singing) Jacob Staudenmaier is my name. Emma Stone, if you came, I think I'd lose it, go insane. We'll have to see...

MARTIN: No word yet on whether the actress has responded, but dream big, Jacob. Dream big. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
