Academy Award-winner Emma Stone found great luck this past year with the film La La Land, and Phoenix teen Jacob Staudenmaier is hoping to find similar luck using one of the songs from the film to help win a date to his school’s prom with Stone herself.
Stone, who is also from the “valley of the sun,” will most definitely get wind of this nifty recreation of the film’s opening number, “Another Day of Sun.” And he really does, as he notes in the video, bear some similarity to Stone’s La La Land co-star Ryan Gosling.
In the video’s description, Staudenmaier, who is a student at Arcadia High School, writes: “I decided to ask Emma Stone to prom by recreating the opening scene from La La Land, her most recent movie. I rewrote the lyrics to the song myself and directed the video and did the choreography too, but thank you so much to all the friends and adults who came out to help make it happen. Especially my friend Alli Gooch who did the camera work and Dash McDonald who fixed the coloring for the video. Big thanks to my film teacher too, Eric Luse.”
Let’s see if he gets that date!
