The internet is losing it over this guy’s confusing promposal sign

Asking someone to prom can be a BIG deal, and some people go to great lengths to ensure their promposal is epic…and hopefully not…super confounding. The internet is currently extremely confused by this kid’s promposal sign. As in, Marlen Williams constructed an elaborate sign in order to pop the question to a lady friend, and the individual words written on it make sense…but together, it’s all kind of a beautiful mystery.

Of course, that’s romantic in and of itself because no one except him (and hopefully his date) knows what it means. Seriously though, see if you can decipher this:

Our thoughts can be summed up as: WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?

via giphyDesperately, people have been trying to figure it out!


Hey, this guy got pretty close to cracking it!

"You'll run the 1, I'll be the 2, I'd love to take a shot at prom #12 with you."

Buuuuuuuuut, NOPE.

Is it, “You’ll be the 1. I’ll run 2. I’d love to take a shot at prom with you.” ???

Sadly, we might never know…though it does seem like that sentence was on the right track. This Twitter user even spelled it out!

ANYWAY, the most important thing is that Marlen’s lady friend seems to have enjoyed it, and the promposal was a success! And we’re giving him props for creativity! This is some Da Vinci Code level-stuff.

We wish them the best at prom! Maybe there’ll be more cryptic messages along the way? HINT HINT.
