(Death and Taxes Mag) We know viral videos have been successful in helping procure dates with society’s most unattainable celebrities such as Mila Kunisand Justin Timberlake, but what about relentless Tweets?
That is what Mike “awesome” Stone is currently trying to find out, by using his Twitter account to spam every porn star he can find in an attempt to secure a prom date for May 12th.
The 18-year-old from Minnesota made news over the weekend when his exploits ended up on the front page of Reddit. Meaning what started as a young man’s personal quest quickly gained national exposure, and of course, criticism.
Unlike the YouTube videos created to attract the attention of Timberlake and Kunis, there is no specificity to his request and even less charm. Stone is simply playing a sheer numbers game by shamelessly propositioning every single porn star with a Twitter account. He is also promising to pay for dinner, a hotel room and a “personal massage.”
The only thing that makes Stone stand out amongst the thousands of other fans promising “personal massages” to porn stars is his stick-to-itiveness. He has already asked over 600 sex-extraordinaires to wear his corsage and make him the envy of all his friends. However the problem with his method is it seems extremely desperate and a touch creepy. By asking every porn star with whom he’s ever spent an intimate internet moment he diminishes the value of each proposal. It doesn’t matter how many double penetration scenes they have to their film credit, a girl wants to feel the love—asking all of her co-workers to prom as well doesn’t make anyone feel special.
So far at least one porn star, Emy Reyes, has been receptive to his incessant pleas, however, the plane ticket is a little outside Stone’s price range. So now he’s asking his Twitter followers to help finance the trip, which shows he’s getting a tad greedy from the attention he’s been given.
Finding a prom date your own age isn’t always an easy task, but convincing a porn star to fly to Minnesota is slightly more difficult. Nevertheless it takes significantly more courage to walk up to that cutie in Biology and ask her to be your date than anonymously begging porn stars via Twitter.
But we here at Death and Taxes are never ones to shit on a kid’s dream, so good luck Mike Stone and stay awesome. We hope you get your very own “personal massage.”
