WEST MILTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A local high school student is looking to make a little magic this prom season.
In an enchanting twist on a prom proposal, Milton-Union High School’s Ryan Moore is trying to score a date with the “belle” of the ball. He asked actress Emma Watson to “be his guest” to prom this Saturday.
“She’s a person, and if I ask her, then she might say yes,” Moore said. “I just really hope that she sees it and acknowledges the video.”
Moore decided to ask Watson to prom after seeing her in “Beauty and the Beast.” In a YouTube video, Moore changes the lyrics to the movie’s opening song.
“Hello, Emma, might I take you to prom?” Moore sings in the video. “I’m Ryan Moore, and I would like to ask you. Please say you’ll make it if you can.”
He posted the video on YouTube and Twitter last week. It has more than 100 retweets so far and more than 650 views.
“She’s doing things because she wants things to happen for the right reason, and she’s not afraid to stand up for what she believes in and what she thinks is right,” Moore said. “I really admire that about her.”
Watson has not responded. Milton Union’s prom is Saturday.
