PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix-area teen is asking actress Emma Stone to be his prom date with an elaborate "La La Land" parody video.

Arcadia High School student Jacob Staudenmaier filmed his so-called "prom-posal" in the style of the opening song from Stone's Oscar-winning film, which features a dance number in a traffic-filled Los Angeles highway.
He enlisted dozens of classmates and a few teachers to help with the video. Stone grew up in Scottsdale, a fact Staudenmaier mentions in the lyrics of his prom request.
Staudenmaier says asking Stone to prom started out as a joke. He says he has a backup date in case the actress doesn't see his video.
