'Promposals' go viral online

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

When Johnny asked Tina to the prom the whole school was in on it. He got his teacher to help him, planning a fake quiz: A for valentine, C for prom date, or the obvious -- all of the above.

The Internet is filled with these extravagant prom proposals, a.k.a. promposals, raising the bar for prom dates everywhere: Guys singing to their sweetheart, making videos wondering who to ask and hoping she'll say yes.

We found Kellie Higgins and Marissa Locotta shopping for that special dress at Estelle's Dressy Dresses in Farmingdale, Long Island.

Marissa said she got asked in a cute way: her boyfriend came to her house wearing a t-shirt with check boxes. She says she marked "yes" of course.

Estelle Schlossberger has owned yje shop for two decades. She said she has seen it all. She said she is old-fashioned and prefers face-to-face, but doesn't expect the social media trend to fade anytime soon.
