More than anything else, it seems like prom defines your childhood. It’s the transition from childhood to adulthood, the moment you get to cut loose, freak out and maybe touch a booby.
Prom is a bit of a curious thing for me as a Brit: I never had a prom, which you might think is sad but I think is incredibly lucky. After all, I never had to go through the stress of asking someone on a date to it, then have their parents videotape my every movement as I picked up the girl, all while wearing an ill-fitting tuxedo that was probably not even cool in the 1970s.
Plus I didn’t have to think about the grand prom entrance.
Everyone seems to need one of these: the problem is that you look back and tend to think what a douche.
Here are the douchiest prom entrances I’ve ever seen.
Fun fact: not one of these people got any action on prom night.
America, let this be a warning: be conventional. No-one likes a tryer.
