The benefits of asking a celebrity to the prom certainly outweigh the negatives. The worst-case scenario is that he or she declines. If he or she accepts, it will turn out to be an unforgettable experience—especially if it's a surprise.

Mount Saint Joseph Academy (Flourtown, Pa.) senior Carly Monzo hatched a brilliant plan to ask Olympic snowboarder Shaun White to the gala. She did it by using a GoPro camera, which happens to be one of White's sponsors.

Check out her "GoProM" video:

Monzo and her friends tweeted the video at White numerous times, hoping to get his attention. Although she didn't know it, White was planning on attending.

Fast-forward to Friday, May 2, which is when Mount Saint Joseph's prom took place.

School officials called a clueless Monzo onto the stage during the prom. When the curtains dropped, White appeared with his band, Bad Things. From there, Monzo rocked out with her date:

Of course, after the fact, White was able to tweet out some photos of his day:

As a result, one teenager learned that tweeting at a celebrity is worth a shot.
