It’s officially prom season and while the process of asking someone to the big dance has gotten a little out of hand and may have you rolling your eyes, the heartwarming story of Las Vegas high-schoolers Jacob Lescenski and Anthony Martinez might make you rethink the phenomenon.
Here’s what you need to know: Jacob is straight, Anthony is gay. But because Jacob is awesome, he figured the only person worth going to prom with is the guy he considers a “brother.”
The teens spoke with NewNowNext but they also chronicled the events on social media.
It started with a plea on Twitter from Anthony:
I DONT WANT TO DATE YOU I JUST WANT A GUY AS A DATE TO PROM. I ALWAYS HELP WITH DANCES ITD BE NICE TO GET ASKED TO ONE.

And resulted in an as-you-wish reply from Jacob:
And what’s better than a promposal that a promposal acceptance?
