Teen recreates Old Spice ad for epic 'promposal'
High school students, are you looking for inspiration for your prom proposal? Have you checked ... the shower? Denver teenager Felipe Prado's play on a famous TV ad not only got his date to say yes, but it's also making him a viral sensation.
As KMGH reports: "Felipe knew he wanted to involve a horse when asking his classmate Kara Wachsmann to the prom, and he instantly thought of that now-famous Old Spice commercial. Kara was led to her knight in sweater armor holding a sign saying: 'Although I'm not the Old Spice guy, going to prom would be fly.'"
For comparison, here's the original ad. "Anything is possible when you man smells like Old Spice and not a lady. I'm on a horse," the Old Spice guy says.
Apparently Wachsmann said yes ... after she finished laughing.
Prado told KMGH he never dreamed the promposal would get as much attention as it has. And his date seems just as surprised, saying, "I didn't really expect it to go all crazy on Twitter."
Old Spice even took notice of the promposal, sending the high schoolers a surprise message that the company will be paying for their limo to the dance.
We don't know if the two are a couple, and a reporter at KMGH was met with giggles when she asked the question. We do know that Prado has upped the promposal bar -- even wedding proposals might now seem inadequate.
