LAS VEGAS – Well, it’s prom season and we’ve already seen one promposal that didn’t go as planned, but this one couldn’t have gone better.

Anthony Martinez, who is gay, is a student council member at his high school.  Every year the 17-year-old helps plan the school dances, but he says he never gets asked to go.

When Anthony’s friend Jacob Lescenski, who is straight, saw his tweets, he decided to ask him to prom in the most adorable way possible.

Jacob created a banner that read: “You’re hella gay, I’m hella str8, but you’re like my brother, so be my d8?”

Anthony then took to Tumblr to talk about his wonderful promposal.

“Guess who got asked to prom! BY A STRAIGHT GUY (Army pants),” Anthony wrote on Tumblr. “He’s my best friend, and a real man given the fact he has the guts to fulfill my gay student council dream of always helping out planning dances, and never getting asked. I couldn’t ask for a better person in my life. Thank you Jacob can’t wait for May 2nd!”

Their story has gone viral and the guys wanted to thank everyone for all of their support.
