Modderman went all out for his elaborate prom-posal video, which opens with him looking scandalized by what he’s reading in the pop star’s Reputation magazine. He makes his case in a variety of settings, including on a basketball court, where he shows off his dunking skills.
The high school student makes a point of asking both Swift’s dad and then her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, if they’d be cool with him taking the pop star to prom.
“I chose Taylor Swift because she’s my favorite, and she is so genuine and down to earth and why not take someone so elegant like her to my prom,” Modderman said of his creative prom-posal. “I got the idea by her interests, she loves corky jokes and creative videos and I put the two together. I would be so overwhelmed with excitement and hopefully, it would continue with her saying yes.
“My favorite song by hers is ‘haunted’,” he added. “Just the whole production of the song and lyrics are very relatable.”
This isn’t Modderman’s first run at Swift. Once while he was on Instagram Live lip-syncing and dancing to her hit, “Look What You Made Me Do,” the singer popped in to say hello.
Meanwhile, when two Swifties tie the knot, Taylor knows how to mark the occasion. On January 12th, two huge Taylor fans named Alexas “Lexi” Gonzales and Brittany Lewis got married in Dickinson, Texas. The two had been together for nine years, and Taylor’s 2008 hit “Love Story” was “their song.” In fact, Brittany even quoted the song’s lyrics when she proposed in 2016.
Taylor learned of the impending nuptials and sent the happy couple flowers as well as a personalized note, which Lexi shared on Twitter.
The card reads, “Lexi & Brittany, you have no idea how honored I am that ‘Love Story’ has been such a big part of your beautiful love story. I’m absolutely thrilled that Lexi said YES! Have the most magical wedding day and hopefully I can meet you both soon! Love, Taylor.”
Lexi wrote on Twitter, “Still In freaking shock that @taylorswift13 sent me and my amazing Hubby flowers on our wedding day!”
