Shaun White surprises high school senior, 18 year old, at prom after she asked him out in the above online video proposal.
After a brief return to snow for a halfpipe shoot in Europe, Shaun White was all over the inter web today with a story about him surprising an 18 year old girl, Carly Monzo, who goes to an all-girls Catholic school in Philadelphia, by turning up at her Prom to be her date, with his band Bad Things who played at the prom.
From the intra web: “When a high school senior from Flourton, Philadelphia asked Shaun White to prom she never thought her wish would come true. Not only did the Olympic snowboarder attend her prom, he played a live show at the event with his band Bad Things. Carly Monzo, a student at an all-girls Catholic school called Mount St. Joseph Academy learned that Shaun White had never attended his own prom before and therefore decided to make an epic video to ask him to hers.
Using a camera by GoPro, one of White’s Sponsors, she filmed herself reading a witty poem and then posted the clip on Vimeo.
The poem read, ‘Roses are red, violets are blue, My name is Carly Monzo, but I’m sure you had no clue. I’m currently a senior @ an all girls school. So when it comes to dates there’s no boy pool.’
‘I have a six-foot rule & I know you’re 5’9″ but I can overlook that ‘cuz DAMN you’re FINE.’
After seeing the video, White decided he’d be Monzo’s date but he kept his prom appearance a secret with some help from the school who fully supported his attendance.
‘I didn’t know that Shaun would be there until they dropped the curtain on the stage,’ Monzo told The Philadelphia Daily News about her surprise.
‘The dean of students called my name and I thought, ‘Oh my God, what did I do?’ I mean, I’ve spent time in her office, but it’s usually for uniforms things.’
So there you have it, Shaun who has been pretty quiet since Sochi, set up a little publicity stunt for himself and his band Bad Things.
