Audeva Ageman was all set to go her prom until her long-distance boyfriend cancelled last-minute. There was no way she was going to miss her big night, but she needed a date.
So the 17-year-old created a life-size cardboard cutout of actor Michael B. Jordan to escort her to the prom.
Jordan is best known for his roles in “Creed” and “Black Panther.”
“After not being able to get a prom date from procrastinating and waiting til the last minute, i spent 3 hours making my sexy prom date,” Audeva said on Twitter in April.

After Ageman’s photos with the cardboard Jordan went viral, he commented on her Instagram post.

Ageman couldn’t believe that she caught the attention of her celebrity crush.
The producers of Jordan’s upcoming film, “Creed 2,” reached out to Ageman on Twitter and asked if she’d like to be part of “a special project for super fans.”
The “Creed 2” team arranged for Ageman to visit the film set, but told her that Jordan wouldn't be on set that day.
But that was just to set up the surprise.
While on the set, Jordan snuck up behind Ageman and gave her a huge hug.
“They picked me up from my house and a 2 hour drive later and I’m being interviewed next thing I know I’m screaming because Michael B Jordan was standing right behind me the whole time,” Ageman told Huffington Post.
