Homecoming, whether you like it or not, is here. It’s the first formal dance of a new school year in which a teen is given the chance to experience a sweaty slow dance with the current object of their affection. Perhaps even, some backseat dry-humping. Two teenagers from Illinois decided to go the extra mile and ask their potential homecoming dates out in a very elaborate way.

George Mugnani and Adam Zybko put on velcro sneakers, turtlenecks, shorts and sunglasses to create an ‘80’s-themed throwback video where they performed “action scenes.” The two teens roll out from underneath cars, do dramatic jumps off of rocks, play a bevy of musical instruments and even ride a tandem bike, all to a soundtrack provided by Bonnie Tyler’s “I Need a Hero.” There’s also a cameo from Shia LaBeouf. At the end, the boys reveal their desired dates’ names written underneath their turtlenecks.

It’s funny and weird, but also brings up that ol’ controversial promposal. While I do appreciate a ridiculously grand gesture with some Liberace-esque flair, the pressure of these promposals have got to be difficult for these teens to endure. The girls said yes, but what if they didn’t actually didn’t want to? By the looks on their faces, I’m not completely buying it. While I am impressed by their creativity and dedication to go viral, I am also conflicted. Homecoming will most likely be a blast, but now these dudes will have go even bigger for prom. Teens! The pressure!
