GARDEN GROVE, Calif., June 7 (UPI) — A California high school student expressed his love for one of his favorite video games by bringing it to his prom as his date.
Chris Burwell shared photos of himself and the disc of Nintendo video game “Super Smash Bros. Melee” attending his high school’s prom.
“I took my one true love Melee to prom,” he wrote.
He said he came up with the idea to bring the game on the day of his prom, as he found himself without a date.
“It was always going to be ‘Smash.'” Burwell said. “I’m not, like, a total loser, but I don’t know any girls that I would take.”
According to Burwell, most of the fellow students and chaperones at the prom appreciated the joke and the experience made his first high school dance one he will remember.
“I had the time of my life. This was my first high school dance — I never did anything like that before,” he said. “I think that’s very memorable and I don’t regret it at all.”
