Here’s an email sent by Mount Saint Joseph last night:
Over a month ago, Carly Monzo ’14 created a video asking two-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White to her senior prom. Carly creatively used a Hero 2 GoPro camera to film the entire video (GoPro was one of Shaun’s sponsors) and featured music from his band, Bad Things, in her video ask, GoProM?. Carly posted her video online and received over 8,900 views in only a month.
Tonight, to Carly’s surprise, Shaun White arrived at the Whitemarsh Valley Country Club around 9:30 p.m. to accept her invitation to the prom. Shaun White and his band, Bad Things, performed three songs to wrap up the evening. This exciting event was filmed and will air on Access Hollywood. Once we have further details we will share them with you.
What a guy.
Here was the video:
I’m not really a fan of these, because they’ve completely jumped the shark and put celebrities in the awkward position of almost having to accept invites to far-flung events with sometimes creepy people (Carly seems normal), but this one was well done and it worked. Love the move by White surprising Carly at the Whitemarsh Valley CC.
Many photos after the jump.
