Prom is an exciting and nerve-racking time. Teens everywhere are hoping to be asked by the person they want to go with. "I'll ask you to prom when pigs fly" is probably not the sentence they're hoping to hear from that person — especially in front of the entire school.
Except in Ben Davis' case. His friend Vee Nguyen painted the sentence on an elaborately decorated cardboard box. Other students presented the box to Davis in the middle of the gym. They cut off the tape, keeping the box closed, and out came pig-shaped balloons filled with helium. Pigs had flown.
Davis was beaming. He then turned around to see five girls wearing shirts that spelled out "P-R-O-M-?" Next to them was Nguyen ready to hear Davis' answer.
He said yes.
"I met Ben Davis two years ago and ever since then we became really good friends," Nguyen wrote in the caption of the video. "He is such a sweet person with a kind heart and it's an honor being able to ask him to prom!"
