Oh prom season. How you bring out the strange, unusual and sometimes wonderful sides of human nature. Between the creative prom-posals, elegant dresses and expensive cars being serviced nowadays, the annual end of high school event certainly has evolved over the years. But even we couldn’t have predicted that a stretch limo would turn into a stretcher just create some simple buzz.
That’s exactly what one teen in the Bahamas did, however. In order to win a “Best Entrance” award at her prom in Abaco Islands, Ashvonn Russell pulled out all the stops — with an ambulance. The teen arrived on a stretcher, and wouldn’t “wake up” until her Prince Charming (prom date Johnny August) kissed her. We’re thinking this move could have worked equally well if said date had dressed as Maleficent?

The “Sleeping Beauty” stunt certainly attracted a lot of attention (the tweet above introducing it to the world has already been retweeted nearly 9,000 times). And many potential prom-goers seemed to be impressed by the level of dedication this girl had.
@HellupJoy lmao that’s gonna be my entrance next year

However most people on social media just seemed confused by the whole thing. Where, for instance, did she even get an ambulance?
Someone could’ve been dying and she using that ambulance to go to prom smh

As far as we see it, you can love or hate her grand entrance. But when it comes to creativity, this girl’s originality is pretty top notch in our books.
