A Teen Took A Cardboard Danny DeVito To Prom So He Took A Cardboard Teen To Work

"Danny was there for me when I really needed him."

There have been a few stories of students inviting celebrities to prom, some successfully (Kylie Jenner) and some unfortunately less so (Emma Stone).

One Pennsylvania high school student decided to take matters into her own hands and ENSURE her celebrity date would attend. Allison Closs decided to take a cardboard cutout of Danny DeVito to her prom.

Explaining in a YouTube video Allison said she bought cardboard Danny off Amazon and duct taped him to a little scooter she bought, attached to a leash. Sounds like the perfect date to us.

Allison also made a short video for her local news interviewing her parents about her date, and saying she had "always loved Danny".

"Danny was there for me when I really needed him," she says between shots of her trying to put her cardboard date in her car.

Allison's less than traditional date also got noticed by the Always Sunny in Philadelphia Twitter account, which she called the highlight of her year.

"As someone who has not been very popular... ever, this was massive," she said before wishing the story would go viral enough for the real DeVito to see it. Allison called DeVito's Always Sunny character Frank an "inspiration" and her role model.

Well, Allison's wish for DeVito to see her story was just the beginning.

DeVito's Always Sunny co-star Rob McElhenney had the perfect idea for a response: a Cardboard Allison.

"Hey Allison - I heard you took cardboard Danny to Prom," McElhenny's caption read on an Instagram post, "What a coincidence. He took cardboard Allison to Paddy's..."

Yep, the gang at Always Sunny created their very own cardboard Allison to hang out in the show's fictional pub. Hopefully cardboard Allison had a cardboard ID to let her in.
