  • Roo Girl Janey's Surprise Tennis Court Promposal!

    There have been so many unique promposals this year, from a promposal delivered by police to a high schooler asking an Eagles linebacker to prom. With promposals and prom in the air, we're so excited to share a new promposal with you. Why is this one so special? It came from one of our very own Roo Girls!

    Janey, who is one of the Roo Girls that works at the Rissy Roo's store in Linwood, NJ, is a student at Atlantic City High School and her Senior Prom is fast approaching. Since it's her senior year of high school, of course she has to go out with a bang, and she's off to a good start since she was asked to attend prom by way of a promposal!

    Janey's Surprise Promposal on the Tennis Court

    Ready for how this adorable picture came to be? Janey plays on the girls tennis team at ACHS, but is also the manager of the boys tennis team. The boys coach called her and asked her to come to practice to help with a couple of things for the team. When she arrived, the coach asked her to take some pictures of the team... and of course first they wanted to have a shirtless picture taken. Five of the boys took their shirts off, and when they did, their chests spelled out, "PROM?" Then, her friend Danny came out, handed her bouquet of flowers, and asked if Janey would attend prom with him. Of course, Janey said, "YES!"

    Such a cute promposal! Since both Janey and Danny are tennis players, could there be a better place than a tennis court for their promposal to take place?! And, Danny getting his teammates and even his coach involved in the promposal is super impressive! We give this tennis promposal the Roo Girl approval all the way! We can't wait fir Janey and Danny to finally attend prom together and hear how amazing their night was after it's all over!

     

  • Girl Gets Pulled Over By Police. What Was Her Ticket For? A PROMPOSAL!

    Promposals have been getting more and more popular each year, and this Prom 2015 season has definitely taken the prom proposals to a whole new level. No more does simply writing a note with a accompanying flowers or a teddy bear work. Now, it's all about dressing up as Prince Charming for the day or coming up with some other totally unique idea.

    Girl Gets Pulled Over By Police. What Was Her Ticket For? A PROMPOSAL! Lauren with the police who delivered her promposal!

    Well, Amesbury High School junior Nick Fortuna, from Boston, Massachusetts, certainly found a very new and unique way to turn the normal note and flower routine into a very special promposal for his girlfriend Lauren Fedorchak. Believe it or not, Nick got the police involved in delivering a promposal! Nick asked police officer Ronald Guilmette to pull over his girlfriend at a traffic stop. Lauren gave the officer her license and registration. When the police officer returned, she received a "ticket," but instead of a traffic citation, the ticket said, "Prom with Tuna?"

    Nick was waiting in Officer Guilmette's police car the whole time. Once Lauren was given her ticket, he came over to Lauren's car to surprise her in purse and give her flowers. Of course, Lauren said "YES!"

    On Wednesday at approximately 3:15PM Officer Guilmette and Amesbury High School junior Nick Fortuna conducted a motor...

    There have been so many amazing promposals this year, but this one may have taken the cake in our book! It's pretty impressive to get the police involved! And, major props to the Amesbury Police Department for being such good sports and helping Nick with his promposal. What do you think of this police promposal? Would you have gotten scared getting pulled over?

  • Celebrity Promposal: Eagles Emmanuel Acho Takes Fan To Prom

    Celebrity promposals have become quite the trend lately, and we have a new one to share with you! This past January, Instagram and Twitter user Hannah Delmonte had a unique promposal for Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho. She asked Acho to maker her "the happiest girl alive" by taking her to prom. She did so by proposing that he take her up on her request if she were able to get 2,000 retweets. Acho countered her promposal, saying that 10,000 retweets would be the magic number. Well, Hannah's obviously a very determined young girl and she did not let a mere 8,000 more retweets get in her way!

    In case you couldn't tell from the photos, Hannah did it! Not only did she get 10,000 retweets, she made it to over 13,000! So, Emmanuel said "YES" to Hannah's promposal, went tux shopping, and surprised his fan at her high school with a custom Eagles jersey as a prom present. The jersey had the number 15 on it, "PROM" written on the back, and was signed by Emmanuel with a special note. So cute!

    The Eagles linebacker definitely made Hannah's perfect prom night (and day) come true! We definitely think this Emmanuel Acho promposal is one for the books. It's always so impressive to see celebrities taking time (and money) out of their busy schedules to go to prom with some of their most die hard fans. Even with how popular celebrity promposals have become, it still surprises us every time we hear about one. Acho has proven to be yet another celebrity we're adding to our all-time favorite list of celebs here at Rissy Roo's! If you could take any celebrity to prom, who would you take?

  • A So Adorbs Robin Williams and Ben Stiller Prom-posal!

    Robin Williams passed away on August 11th, and we still miss him so much. He brought an unprecedented amount of joy and laughter to this world that nobody will ever forget. From more serious movies like Good Will Hunting and Bicentennial Man, to laugh-out-loud funny movies like The Birdcage, to kids' favorites like Hook and Night at the Museum, Robin had an amazing talent and personality that will always stay in the hearts of his fans.

    Even with everything the late comedian did, two words that we never thought we'd hear in the same sentence were 'Robin Williams' and 'prom,' but the actor managed to have some prom fun during one of the last movies he filmed, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb...and with another famous comedian, too... Ben Stiller! Skyler Gisondo, who plays the son of Ben Stiller's character in the film, was a senior in high school at the time that the film was being shot. Even though he was away from home filming Night at the Museum, he still was planning to go to prom and had a special person in mind that he wanted to ask to be his date. So, he asked his co-stars Robin Williams and Ben Stiller to give him a hand with a prom proposal! The two stars not only agreed to help Skyler in his promposal quest, but they had quite the enthusiasm to share!

    http://youtu.be/9WCEQy1-msE

    "All morning, Robin was pitching more ideas," Skyler told The Hollywood Reporter. "He was saying, 'Can I say this? Would it be appropriate to say this?' You're Robin Williams. You can say whatever you want! It turned into this three-minute, ridiculous thing. A prom-posal. I realized that was the most awesome three minutes of my life and I've accepted it will go downhill from there."

    In the super cute video, which you can watch above, Robin and Ben advertise all of the great 'benefits' of dating Skyler, and even pretend to have a whole special performance ready to go for the potential date's (Hilary's) pleasure.

    This all happened back in May, but the video is timeless for so many reasons, and shows how great (and funny) of people both Robin and Ben are. In his interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Skyler even said that his time working with Robin was "invaluable."

    "Robin was the bottomless reservoir of kindless and hilarity," Skyler told The Hollywood Reporter. "It was just so special to work so closely with this guy whose movies I've grown up with and watch his preparedness and his kindness."

    Most importantly: the Robin Williams Ben Stiller Prom-posal totally worked and landed Skyler the prom date with Hilary!

    We hope you enjoy the video as much as we did, and that perhaps it gives you some inspiration for your own promposal! Rest in peace, Robin - you continue to bring us so much joy.

  • Joe Biden Gets Asked to Prom By Connecticut Teen

    It looks like not all dream prom dates consist of hot hunk musicians and A-list actors! One Connecticut girl had her eyes on taking someone else to her prom, and he was definitely more than the average person to appear randomly on Page Six...it's Vice President Joe Biden!

    Joe Biden Vice President Joe Biden

    It turns out Talia Masseli, a student at Newington High School in Newington, Connecticut had a deep desire to have Biden escort her to her Senior Prom. She made this decision back in the Fall and took priority in writing him as soon as possible explaining, “I am inviting you so far in advance because I’m sure many 17-year-old girls send you prom invitations, and I had to beat them to it.” She later cheerily announced, “I could only tolerate a high school dance if I was to be escorted by the most delightful man in America.” Way to go Talia! If this was an election for sweetest and most confident promposal, you would have our votes!

     Even though the Vice President attending Talia's prom would have been the ultimate fairytale, Biden had a scheduling conflict that did not permit him to be in Connecticut at the same time as the event. However, Talia did receive a sweet ending! Talia got a package at her home before the prom with a beautiful corsage made of red, white, and blue flowers along with a note from Joe Biden on official White House stationary. He expressed,  “I am flattered, but my schedule will not permit me to be in Connecticut on Friday evening, but I hope you will accept this corsage and enjoy your prom as much as I did mine.” Wow, what a guy!

    Talia With Her Special Corsage Talia With Her Special Corsage

    Even though Talia didn't get to go to prom with her dream guy, she still has a wonderful story and an extra special gift! Vice President Biden invited her to visit Washington, DC this summer, which she plans to do!

  • GoProm Promposal makes for a Shaun White Prom!

    Celebrity promposals are all the rage lately, and yet another celeb delivers on an night to remember for one lucky prom-goer: Shaun White! High schooler Carly Monzo came up with such a creative idea to ask the Olympian and pro snowboarder to prom: by using a staple in the snowboarding industry, a GoPro! Carly smartly even named her promposal after the camera, with the name GoProm. So cute!

    You can watch an overview of the promposal here:

    http://youtu.be/_Wzajq741yE

    We were so happy to hear that Shaun White took time out if his busy schedule to surprise Carly at her prom! ABC had the scoop, and this is what they said:

    "A month ago, the Montgomery County senior at Mount Saint Joseph Academy in Flourtown, and her friends got creative.

    Monzo posted a video proposal online but got no response from the busy pro snowboarder, skateboarder and musician until Friday night.

    A couple hours into her prom at Whitemarsh Valley Country Club, there was a special performance.

    "Curtains drop and the band just starts jamming and I was like, 'Oh my goodness," said Monzo.

    White appeared on stage in his tux and with his band, Bad Things. They performed three songs and invited Monzo on stage.

    "To be honest with you if there wasn't pictures or video evidence, I would have thought I had a dream," she said.

    The Olympian lit up social media, snapping photos with dozens of students before revealing how he made a secret trip from Austria just to surprise Monzo.

    "It was really about being there with my friends, my whole entire grade got to share this moment with me and it was so awesome," she said."

    So cool! Click here to read the full story and see more pictures.

  • A Promposal Car in front of Rissy Roo's!

    We were so excited this week to see a promposal...right in the parking lot of our store at Rissy Roo's in Linwood, NJ! Highschooler Tyler had the creative idea to make his date's car into her prom proposal by using car paint to write the promposal on her windshield. The promposal said:

    "Will you go to Prom with me?

    --  Yes!  --  No  --  (Choose 1)  -- Love, Tyler."

    Car Promposal

    We especially loved all of the cute hearts that were drawn all around the windshielf! The lucky date clearly said YES, since the "Yes!" was circled on the car, and she's now already at Rissy Roo's picking out a dress!

    If you're still trying to find a cute way to ask your date to prom (whether you're the guy or the girl), this is a really easy and fun way to do it. It will definitely help to keep any feeling of pressure or anxiety to a minimum! Plus, once the date says "yes," they'll get to show off the promposal to all of their friends for weeks to come, which is always fun.

  • Bryan Cranston Helps a Fan Get a Date to Prom

    The Miley Cyrus promposal has been topping our charts as the best prom proposal of 2014, but we may have just discovered a new favorite! Recently, Breaking Bad fan Stefan Montana ran into actor Bryan Cranston on the streets and asked Bryan to help him with his promposal. Of course, the awesome Bryan obliged to help...in the most badass Breaking Bad way possible! Check out the Bryan Cranston promposal here:

    http://youtu.be/u408FzkwW98

    The title of the YouTube video is called "Bryan Cranston Got Me a Date to Prom!" so we can happily assume that Maddie gave a resounding "YES!" Of course, how could you say "no," to "the one who knocks" to begin with? Way too scary! If Maddie did give a "no" to the promposal, her best course of action definitely would be to tread lightly!

    We love how ecstatic both Stefan and Bryan are towards the end of the promposal - they both seemed like they had a lot of fun with it! It's definitely always exciting to see a TV star as big as Bryan Cranston having fun with his fans. And, of course, with the Breaking Bad TV show finally over, it was nice to get a little taste of Walter White back in action. You're a lucky girl, Maddie, for getting such a unique promposal from your date (and from a celebrity)! We hope the two of you have a wonderful time at prom!

    What did you think of the Bryan Cranston promposal? Do you wish you could get a celebrity in on your prompsal? We sure do! Make sure to keep your eyes peeled and your ears perked for opportunities!
