Justin Bieber never got to go to a high school prom in the traditional sense, though he’s had TONS of invitations from fans. Unfortunately, he’s never accepted the offers (living the pop star life and all) but on Saturday, a high schooler from New Jersey named Leon Purvis brought a cardboard cutout of JB to his sophomore prom.
Last year, the male Belieber created a YouTube video addressed to the star: ”Since it’s a very big deal, I’m going to ask this: Justin Bieber would you like to come to my prom with me, not as my date but as a friend, as a brother?”
Though the video received more than 147,000 page views, he never heard back. Not to worry, Purvis opted for a $42 cutout of the pop sensation for the prom, which was this weekend. He even graced Cardboard Bieber with some of his dance moves.
Luckily for Purvis, he got two free tickets to Bieber’s Believe Tour from Scooter Braun.
